In a move by Warner Brothers and DC that will surprise no one, a Jared Leto stand alone Joker film is in the works. Leto first put on the clown make-up for the 2016 movie Suicide Squad. The one issue that fans took away from his performance was the lack of screen time from the big screen version. However, the director’s cut seemed to pick up steam from the fandom.
At the time of this writing, the movie is still in the early stages. However, it does look like it will be an origin story for the joker. But good news on fans wanting to see the Jared Leto version of the Joker sooner, Suicide Squad 2 begins production next year.
A stand-alone Joker film does not seem to be a stretch for Warner Brothers and DC as they are still looking to be able to capture the magic that the Marvel Cinematic Universe was able to capture.
