Warner Bros. is looking to expand on Jared Leto’s version of the Joker, which debuted in 2016’s “Suicide Squad,” with a movie of his own.
Sources tell Variety that Leto is set to star and exec produce an untitled standalone film, paving the way for future movies branching from “Suicide Squad.”
Plot details are currently unknown, but the studio’s idea is to expand on the world created by “Suicide Squad” and tie into future installments of that property. Warner Bros. already announced that Margot Robbie’s version of Harley Quinn would be getting her own movie with a “Birds of Prey” feature, and the next goal was setting up a film for Leto’s Joker.
DC is giving Jared Leto a solo Joker movie after the studio pretty much cut him out of Suicide Squad entirely so we can get more crucial footage of Cara Delevigne covered in mud and moving around like a busted lava lamp for no reason. Was she directed to move that way or was that a ‘creative’ choice? Either way, no.
Suicide Squad is the worst movie I’ve ever seen. Any time I talk about DC movies, I need to make that statement clear.
Now DC is giving Jared Leto the green light.
Who asked for this?
DC is undefeated in their constant defeats.
Batman V. Superman is a movie about two of the most iconic characters in fiction and they produced a 3-hour garbage extravaganza with a strange Jesse Eisenberg Lex Luthor portrayal as the cherry on top of the foulest tasting cake ever baked.
Jared Leto’s Joker was the awful combination of all the over the top Heath Ledger moments mixed with weird racial stereotypes and all of the annoying Jared Leto-isms including Leto sending the other actors on set dead rats and used condoms. USED condoms. Jared Leto had sex with a consenting adult, hopefully, and then pulled the condom off, stuffed it in an envelope and then sent that shit to like, Viola Davis.
Also, and most importantly, I don’t give a shit about The Joker.
The more you learn about his character and motivations, the less interesting he becomes. What makes the Joker fascinating is the belief that he has no motivations. Once we start getting into the details of his day-to-day life, you realize that he’s a grown man with green hair and clown makeup who is just like, a dick.
Here’s what should be on DC’s movie To-Do List:
1. MAKE A GOOD SUPERMAN MOVIE.
2. Then do it again in a sequel.
