WB Developing Spin Off Movie for Jared Leto's Joker

Jared Leto, who starred as the Clown Prince of Crime in Suicide Squad, is in line to reprise his role - weird tattoos notwithstanding - as DC and Warner Bros. looks to further bolster its movie ranks. Variety adds that their are no plot details available for the Joker movie yet, but the current plan is that the movie will represent a path for other characters featured in Suicide Squad to get their own franchises.

Aside from this Joker movie, it was previously announced that Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn was getting her own spin-off, which now appears to have been amalgamated with the Birds of Prey movie, set to be directed by Cathy Yan.

Despite yesterday's news about the new Jared Leto project, Deadline reports that Warner still developing the Joker origin movie from Todd Phillips.

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.

After the ceremony, it will face confidence votes in both chambers of parliament, where the M5S and the League have a majority. News agency ANSA said he went straight to the lower house of parliament, where he met with 5-Star leader Luigi Di Maio.

Leto's Joker, as fans noted, was nearly a glorified cameo in "Suicide Squad".

Joaquin Phoenix has been in talks to play the Joker in this movie. And given how not everyone was able to stomach the little that they did see of Leto's Joker makes it even more confusing.

Warner Bros. seems to have a profound misunderstanding of what many viewers want, as evidenced by films like Batman v. Superman and Justice League.

Moreover, the marketing campaign for the film was poorly done, as it focused on Leto's character when the movie didn't actually revolve around him.
