DC surely knows how to make a mess of everything and always comes back to prove it. And this time they are playing with the most iconic Batman villain. As per the reports, Warner Bros. are planning to make a movie about Jared Leto’s take on the Joker. The first time we saw his character was in the Academy Award Winning Suicide Squad. The film failed at the box-office, and it is still counted as a big disaster on the DC’s end. So, the update of the movie based on the Jared Leto’s Joker which received reasonably bad reviews came as a shock to many fans.
Alongside this, the other reason for the shock is that there are currently many developments based on the clown prince of DC are underway, and another movie on the same character will only create unnecessary chaos. However, the discussion regarding the solo Joker movie starring Jared Leto is in early stages with no director and writer attached to it. As per the reports from Variety, Jared Leto is himself producing the film along with performing his acting duties.
Apart from this, there is already a Joker movie in development with Todd Phillips at the helm and Joaquin Phoenix taking on the role of maniac clown. Moreover, the fate of the solo Joker movie starring Leto looks same as the many other DC movies which may or may not see the sun. Currently, there are 3-4 movies in development that will involve the iconic villain in it. First is based on ‘Mad Love’ which will explore the Harley Quinn and Joker’s relationship. Then following it, we have Birds of Prey movie with Cathy Yan at the helm.
Then, we also have solo Batman movie in works with Ben Affleck returning to play the role of Caped Crusader. Filmmaker Matt Reeves is writing and directing the film. And it is not confirmed yet that the Joker will be included in that film at this point. There are many possibilities of Joker to come alive on big screen, and that is bit bugging right now. It’s high time DC should get their shit together because for how long they will ride on the success of Wonder Woman. This update inevitably confirms that DC and Warner Bros don’t have a solid plan at their disposal and are just throwing everything into the mix.
Let’s find out what are the views of fans regarding the Jared Leto’s new Joker movie.

Can we just forget the entire mess of DCU film baggage and go back to that idea where Jon Hamm is middle-aged Superman? Wonder Woman can come too because she’s pretty cool. pic.twitter.com/MGOEJuloWG

To be fair, it’s a very Joker thing to do convincing a studio that it’s a great idea to make another movie based in the Suicide Squad universe.
