JARED LETO Not Smiling At Possibility Of Multiple JOKERS

Martin Scorsese's new Joker film will be super dark and ''real''

Now, some are suggesting the move from Warner Bros. could be a play to get Scorsese's longtime collaborator, Leonardo DiCaprio, to channel the comic-book villain. He's slated to play the Joker in Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens, and in his own spinoff alongside #HarleyQuinn.

The Joker film is expected to be a spin-off from other movies Warner Bros has done with the DC Extended Universe.

Meanwhile, Leo - who hasn't been in a film since The Revenant back in 2015 - won't hit the big screen again until he reunites with Scorsese for Killers Of The Flower Moon, which tells the story of a real-life murder mystery that eventually caused the creation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but even that project isn't anticipated to arrive until late 2018. Both DiCaprio and Scorsese have mostly avoided blockbuster fare during their careers, but now that both have their Oscars, maybe that could change.

The report notes, however, that no offer has been made for DiCaprio at this time, and according to their sources, Scorsese isn't even finalized yet.

Todd Philips is also set to co-direct the film and Scott Silver will co-write the script.

She also urged security forces to ensure aid reaches those in need and to ensure the rights of all communities. British Ambassador Matthew Rycroft said there were calls from council members for de-escalation.

Jared Leto makes his comeback in the film based on The Joker and Harley Quinn but will unfortunately not take the lead in this version. Still, Warner Bros has a long way to go before this collaboration becomes a done deal.

THR's report does caution that "the chances of landing DiCaprio could be slim to none".

Leto had previously voiced displeasure on several of his scenes being cut from Suicide Squad.

At least Wonder Woman is good.

Meanwhile, a standalone Joker film is also in the works, according to Deadline. The project caught us by surprise, mainly because it was revealed it would be a completely separate entity from the DCEU, with a new actor taking over the role from the current Clown Prince of Crime, Jared Leto.
