Although the film was well-publicized before the screening, audiences left the theaters disappointed, and mostly because of the Joker played by Jared Leto.
Over the years, it became apparent that David Eyre’s original plans for the tape had changed greatly under the influence of Warner Bros., which hoped to get a grossing superhero film. In the past few months, the director has begun to reveal exactly what the studio has changed, and one of his recent revelations has confirmed a curious fan theory.
It is about unknown women dressed in red who appear in the background of some scenes involving the Joker. One Twitter user suggested that the Clown Prince was trying to replace Harley, who was in captivity at the time.

You weren’t wrong, – Eyre remarked back.
By the way, a fan also mentioned that “there was a similar episode in the old Batman cartoon.” True, then the Joker limited himself to only one girl to replace Harley, but she coped with her role extremely poorly.
Eyre now hopes that he will be able to show the director’s version of his underrated film after Zack Snyder. And the fans are expecting it no less.
