Jared Leto confirms the Joker Origin movie news has him confused as well.
For a while now, rumours have been circulating the net about a ‘The Joker Origin movie’ coming up alongside a sequel to Suicide Squad with a Joker and Harley romance movie. There’s so much going on in DC right now but it’s all really confusing.
For one, The Joker in the origin movie won’t be played by Jared Leto and will instead be played by Leonardo DiCaprio which really has fans confused seeing that Jared Leto will be playing Joker in the Joker and Harley story with Suicide Squad 2 but not this.
What’s even more confusing is that both Jokers won’t have anything to do with each other. It’s like two different Jokers in two different worlds under DC. Apparently, Jared Leto is as confused as well.
At a Destiny 2 launch event [yeah, Jared is a Destiny fan] during an interview, the interviewer told Jared how she was confused about WB plans and he said “I’m a little confused too, but yeah, there are a couple of things happening in the DC world. I loved the Joker, he’s a great character, a really fun character to play,” he continued. “It’s a big universe and when you play the Joker, there’s no ownership there. You have the honor of holding the baton for a little while and then passing it off. But there are other films in development and I’m excited to see what comes from them.”
The Joker origin movie will apparently not be part of the DC Extended Universe which is also weird. Perhaps, they plan on making a shared multiverse. We won’t know for sure till further update.
The Joker movie is going to be set in the 80s and will feature a much younger Joker.
