Justin Halpern and Patrick Shumaker have confirmed that Harley and the Joker’s toxic relationship is over for good. What’s more, Halpern and Shumaker even elaborate that if they get their way, Harley and Ivy will never part ways on the show.
Speaking to The A.V. Club, the couple was asked if there are any aspects of the Batman canon that they intend to avoid. Shumaker replied:
“For me, we still have the occasional fan reaction, ‘I don’t like Harley and Ivy together. She should go back to the Joker,’ which we never intend to do. Harley and Ivy will never part ways on the show as long as we have a say. This is something we never want to go back to.
The pair seem to be keen to avoid any Joker-Harley-related storylines, with Halpern revealing that they also have no plans to include Punchline (Joker’s new supervillain girlfriend) in the show’s canon.
