According to Variety, Jared Leto is set to star in and executive produce his very own Joker movie. The plan is for Warner Bros. to build out the world that it created with Suicide Squad.
Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn in the upcoming Birds of Prey movie and in Suicide Squad 2, and now Leto has his own Joker movie. All of which will take place within the Suicide Squad universe.
Warner Bros. has also been working on a separate Joker movie with director Todd Phillips. No word on how today’s news about Jared Leto’s Joker movie will affect that project.
Variety is unsure as to whether Jared Leto’s Joker movie will come before or after Suicide Squad 2. For now, the movie is still in the early stages and is searching for a writer.
