A solo Joker movie is something that is clearly high up on the list of priorities in the boardrooms of Warner Bros. It was reported a couple of months ago that the studio were developing a solo Joker movie but with a different actor. While it was never confirmed there were reports of the studio talking to Joaquin Phoenix for the role. It was even reported at some point that a script would be submitted soon and production would start later this year. As if fans weren’t confused enough with this potential Joker movie Variety today has reported that the studio are developing a solo Joker movie starring Jared Leto. This movie is set to take place within a universe which consists of the characters form Suicide Squad. I’m all for Jared Leto getting another chance with the Joker role but a whole movie? I thought this would have been a perfect opportunity to put him as the main villain for the Suicide Squad sequel, learning from their previous mistakes. Suicide Squad 2 is still in development and according to reports it should go into production later this year. It will be interesting to see his role in this film. As for what I would prefer? I rather go with Leto’s Joker playing a more prominent role in Suicide Squad 2. I can’t lie though a solo Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix, produced by Martin Scorsese set in the 80’s does sound like a great idea. But I think ultimately they need to set their sights on one solid idea. I mean there are more characters in the DC universe that deserve this kind of priority.
