New Jersey Natives May Have A Very Strange Complaint About Birds Of Prey

Sometimes the internet latches onto some really interesting details when it comes to a movie like Birds Of Prey. In this particular instance, the detail that’s somehow sparked a major conversation is the fact that Harley Quinn is in love with what she’s described as a perfect breakfast sandwich. There’s just one problem with that: if Harley’s truly a citizen of Gotham City, New Jersey, she’s absolutely wrong.

The sandwich shown on screen is not the epitome of the classic breakfast sandwich from the Garden State for a couple of very important reasons. So seeing as the world is going to focus on a breakfast treat that’s being put forward as an idealized food item, we may as well break it apart and discuss what the proper New Jersey egg sandwich would actually look like.

But before we jump too far into an academic dissection of breakfast sandwiches, let’s go over a little bit of DC Comics lore to settle our location.

Yes, Gotham City Is In New Jersey!

Through several sources of DC Comics canon, Gotham City has been geographically placed within the state of New Jersey. It was particularly noticeable from 1977’s Amazing World Of DC Comics #14, and from that point on there have been a lot of references that cemented this location in comic history.

Recently, this has crossed over into the DC Comics movies, particularly in 2016’s Suicide Squad, which showed us the rap sheet for Will Smith’s Floyd “Deadshot” Lawton. There it is, as clear as day: Gotham City, New Jersey was established in the film canon of what was once the DC Extended Universe.

As if that wasn’t enough, there’s even real life precedent that lands a factual cherry on top of the sundae, as both The Dark Knight Rises and Joker filmed in Newark, New Jersey. So between real life, comic book fantasy and even Harley’s exaggerated accent, dear Ms. Quinzel is a certifiable resident of the Garden State.
