Jared Leto's Joker to get his own movie

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

WB/GETTYBatman SHOCK: Joker solo movie starring Jared Leto CONFIRMED - What about Joaquin Phoenix? Robbie's Harley Quinn was the clear standout of the otherwise dingy and weird Suicide Squad, so a spin-off featuring her makes flawless sense.

Warner Bros. DC comics movie universe just got a little more complicated with reports indicating that Jared Leto's maniacal version of The Joker is getting his own standalone film set in the same universe as "Justice League".

On top of all that (!), Warner Bros. are also developing another Joker movie that will stand apart from the DCEU (or whatever they eventually end up calling it).


It must be noted that we've reported extensively on the creative process over at Warner Bros. when it comes to their DC movies, and- in a nut shell- it's likely this Joker movie is merely an idea that's in development.

Giving Leto this star vehicle, which he will also produce, seems like a reward for the success of a movie that he basically had an extended cameo in. Rather, Phillips' film would fall under a new origins banner that would be separate from the current cinematic DC universe. One movie will be the origin story, while Jared Leto's will focus on the partly established character that we saw glimpses of during Suicide Squad. Warners is on track for their previously announced plan to launch Harley-centric Birds of Prey movie, with Leto's Joker movie set to follow.

A Suicide Squad sequel is also in the post, due to go into production in 2019, and that's aside from the now in-development The Batman from Matt Reeves, helmsman of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes.
