Jared Leto Says 'I'm a Little Confused, Too' About Joker Movie Plans

Jared Leto Says 'I'm a Little Confused, Too' About Joker Movie Plans”

"Yeah, I think so [that they're both being developed]".

"I'm a little confused, too..." Pictures and DC are in the early stages of developing a Joker origin movie, which The Hangover's Todd Phillips will direct and Martin Scorsese will produce.

The Joker has previously been played by Jack Nicholson in Batman, by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, and by Jared Leto in Suicide Squad.

If you're confused as to what exactly Warner Bros.is doing with the Joker, you're not alone. The movie will also not be part of the DC Extended Universe's continuity.

However, the word from #Warner Bros.is that the upcoming work on a Joker stand-alone movie will be a separate world from the current DCEU and that means a completely different actor in the role of the Clown Prince of Crime. You have the honor of holding the baton for a little while and then passing it off.

The actor went on to comment on another Joker films that's being developed. "But there are other films in development and I'm excited to see what comes from them". Thus far, he is expected to appear in the Joker/Harley spin-off opposite Margot Robbie, from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy, Stupid, Love), as well as, another appearance in the fast-tracked Suicide Squad sequel and Gotham City Sirens.

In hindsight, it is unfair for Leto's performance to be judged with just one outing. Or, at least, Jared Leto, the most recent man to bring the character to life on the big screen, doesn't.

Leto was reportedly not happy with the news that the studio was already looking to cast another Joker, only thirteen months after his iteration of the character debuted in theaters.
