We’re Getting the Jared Leto Joker Movie Nobody Asked For

We’re Getting the Jared Leto Joker Movie Nobody Asked For

The news of Leto's Joker movie going forward all-but-confirms the strategy. That film is being produced under a new banner separate from the DC Extended Universe, to which Jared Leto's Joker is part, along with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, Ben Affleck's Batman, Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa's Aquaman, etc.

Leto could reportedly star and executive produce an untitled standalone film from Warner Bros. about the Joker, which could pave the way for future movies branching from Suicide Squad, according to Variety on Tuesday.

Similarly, it emerged last August that Warner Bros is also developing a Joker origin story without Leto.

Leto went into full immersion mode for the part, remaining in character throughout the shoot, and delivering his co-stars a series of freakish and gruesome gifts.

Her reemergence comes after weeks of rampant speculation about where she's been since undergoing surgery in mid-May. CNBC reporter Eamon Javers tweeted last week he had seen the first lady walking with her aides in the West Wing.

Variety reports the plot details surrounding the solo Joker movie are unknown, but the studio's idea is to expand on the world created by Suicide Squad and tie into future installments of that property.

United States actor Jared Leto poses as he arrives to attend the European premiere of the film Suicide Squad in central London on August 3, 2016. Leto's "Suicide Squad" incarnation was more cruel and self-assured, sporting slicked-back hair, face tattoos, and silver-capped fangs.

Warner Bros. bosses are also working on the character's origin tale, which will be directed by The Hangover's Todd Phillips, with Joaquin Phoenix reportedly in the running to star in the project.

So wait a minute...how many individual, concurrently made Joker movies do we need? Of course, none of these actually have firm release dates - the closest is Suicide Squad 2 being released sometime in 2019 - so which ones happen is anyone's guess, and it's not clear whether Warner Bros. themselves even know at this point, but hey, maybe Joker will even fight Batman in one of them.
