Leto and the studio are searching for a writer, and its now unclear if the Joker movie would go into production before Suicide Squad 2. However, it's entirely possible that will happen in the coming months, potentially pushing the Suicide Squad spin-off ahead of the sequel to the poorly-received first film.

Additionally, it also tapped Joaquin Phoenix to star in an origin story for The Joker.

Jared Leto IS reprising his role as The Joker, with a standalone movie for his take on the character reportedly confirmed.

A new standalone Joker film starring Jared Leto is coming to cinema screens, and it has been revealed that the actor/singer has also signed on as producer. One minute, Ben Affleck still wants to play the character in the DCEU, but reportedly won't be a part of The Batman, which he was initially going to write, direct, and star in.

It is not clear if Warner Bros. has plans to produce two distinct Joker films or if the studio is simply developing different projects with the idea one will eventually emerge. Much like how Warner Bros. stressed a year ago that that film did not mean Leto was out as the Clown Prince of Crime in the DCU, it would seem Phillips' film isn't off the table either. Yet.

Previously, the film studios confirmed Margot Robbie's upcoming production, Birds Of Prey, which centers around her character, Harley Quinn.

Leto was most recently seen in "Blade Runner: 2049" and Netflix's "The Outsider".

Further details are now sketchy, partly because the project is clearly in its early stages. All six - yes, you read that correctly - six of them.
