Jared Leto’s Joker Set for Standalone Movie at Warner Bros

Jared Leto’s Joker Set for Standalone Movie at Warner Bros

While the debate over whether it's worth getting two Joker movies, let alone one, will rumble on, it appears that DC are finally going all-in on Jared Leto's Joker after a tepid reaction to his debut.

For now, it seems that Warner Bros. and Jared Leto will be hunting for a writer and a director to get the ball rolling for yet another Joker movie.

The outlet, who spoke with sources, reports: "[The film will pave] the way for future movies branching from "Suicide Squad.

The actor is set to star in the Warner Bros. This follows on from the previous Joker solo movie announced, with Joaquin Phoenix rumoured to star in a completely separate universe.

Jared Leto IS reprising his role as The Joker, with a standalone movie for his take on the character reportedly confirmed.

The Clown Prince of Crime looks set to receive his own spinoff film.

Plot details are now unknown, but the studio's idea is to expand on the world created by "Suicide Squad" and tie into future installments of that property. No plot details are known as of now, but Leto will also executive produce the movie. The Oscar-winner had made it clear following the film's release that he hoped to expand on the character in future films in a more substantive, if not starring, role. Now both Leto and the studio are in search of a writer.

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. That includes this Joker standalone, and also Harley Quinn's own "Birds of Prey" movie, which may or may not feature Penguin.
