  • Jared Leto’s Joker Is Getting His Own Movie (EXCLUSIVE)

The internet has not reacted positively to the news of Leto getting his own movie.

All of this might explain why, according to sources at Variety, Warner Bros is reportedly thinking about devoting a whole movie to Jared Leto's incarnation of the Joker. It's also unclear if this film would shoot before or after the previously announced sequel to "Suicide Squad", which is believed to go into production sometime in 2019.

The outlet notes that Leto is set to star and executive produce the film, which will function as a way to expand on the character from his appearance in Suicide Squad and set up additional films in the cinematic universe. Making it even more unusual is that a Joker origins film is already in the works by director Todd Philips with Joaquin Phoenix and Leonardo di Caprio having been rumoured as options to play the Joker in this film. While the critics responded poorly to Suicide Squad, the film was a huge box office success, raking in $746.8 million worldwide. Nevertheless, in the lamentable Suicide Squad, Jared Leto assumed the mantle and a seemingly untouchable role was, for better or worse, reborn.

As you can see, the Clown Prince of Crime's suit is pretty similar to what we got in the film, but his face has an older and more mature look to it.

Do we need a Joker movie at all, much less two?

There has been no update on Ben Affleck's solo Batman movie, to be directed by Matt Reeves.

"I loved the Joker, he's a great character, a really fun character to play", Leto said in a September interview with the British YouTube channel ODE Entertainment.

It's unknown at this time where in Warner Bros. and DC's film release timeline any of these movies will take place, let alone the DCEU's canonical timeline.
