WB Developing Spin Off Movie for Jared Leto's Joker

Despite earning awful reviews, "Suicide Squad" (2016) made Warner Bros. nearly $747 million at the worldwide box office.

Warner Bros.is working on a standalone movie focusing on the 46-year-old actor's villainous character, Variety reports. 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.

According to a report by Variety, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are firmly moving forward on a Jared Leto-starring Joker standalone movie.

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. It's always been known that The Hangover's Todd Phillips is directing an origin movie of the Clown Prince of Crime produced by Martin Scorsese and reportedly starring Joaquin Phoenix. Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to play the character in that film but no overlap between the two is expected.

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. 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. No director or writer has yet been attached to Leto's Joker movie.
