Rumors of a standalone Jared Leto-starring The Joker film have been percolating ever since his debut in Suicide Squad. And it turns out those fears have come to be real as Warner Bros. confirmed work on just that. Leto will star and executive produce the film, which is set to be the first in a series of Suicide Squad related movies. The film is currently looking for a writer.
Warner Bros. is also working on a Birds of Prey feature with Margot Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn. The studio has another Joker feature in the works as well, directed by Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix.
If Star Wars can flood the box office with movies, then sure as shit DC can too.
