How do you feel about Suicide Squad? Well, whatever your opinion is, you better get prepared – Warner Bros. is looking to expand on its universe, starting with Jared Leto’s Joker.
Variety reported that Leto is set to work on a standalone Joker film as an actor and executive producer to pave the way for the future movies in the Suicide Squad universe.
Joker will be the second character to have a spin-off from the film, with the first being Harley Quinn. In April, Cathy Yan was announced as the director for the Harley Quinn movie, which is to be based on the “Birds of Prey” comic.
The plot, production and schedule release of the upcoming Joker movie remain unknown. Leto and the studio are reportedly looking for a writer now.
People aren’t exactly optimistic about the news:
It's gonna be awkward when they make a Joker movie with Jared Leto and all his scenes get cut anyway
