With the way everything else is happening in the DCEU this clearly seemed like the next step right? Well nonetheless The Joker from Suicide Squad will be getting his own film.
Warner Bros is looking to make a standalone of this version of the character that debuted in the 2016 Suicide Squad film. This film is set to have Jared Leto who portrayed the role to star and exec produce an untitled standalone film. This is set to pave the way for more future movies branching from off from Suicide Squad.
There currently is not a plot or any details for the film but the belief is that Warner Bros wants to further expand on the “Suicide Squad” world with the different properties that lie within. It has already been announced that Margot Robbie’who portrayed Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad is getting her own film with Birds of Prey.
Now this adds on to the “Joker” film catalog. As an origin film is on the way from Todd Phillips. Now this film is not set to be included within the current DCEU and the reason is to allow multiple actors as well as versions of characters to exist without any overlap. In that version Joaquin Phoenix has been tapped to play the clown prince of crime.
Let us know your thoughts on this. Are you excited? Are you looking forward to seeing a more expanded version than what we saw in the Suicide Squad film?
