No word on how today's news about Jared Leto's Joker movie will affect that project. " This is in keeping with Warner Bros.' recent push for various DCU projects meant to act as possible outlets for Margot Robbie's incarnation of Harley Quinn, such as Birds of Prey".

Last fall, Warner Bros. announced that a Joker origin story separate from the Suicide Squad depiction and the current DC cinematic universe was also in development.

The plan is for Warner Bros.to build out the world that it created with Suicide Squad.

Jared Leto debuted as Joker in 2016's Suicide Squad, and Leto had roles recently in Blade Runner: 2049 and the Netflix movie, The Outsider. Update: Deadline says the Phillips Joker movie is still in the works. The rumours were that Phillips' film would delve into the early history of the Clown Prince of Crime. Mind you; if there is one thing we have learnt about Warner Bros and their DC Extended Universe, it's that they do not know when to stop flogging a dead horse. The Oscar-winner had made it clear following the film's release that he hoped to expand on the character in future films in a more substantive, if not starring, role.

A Suicide Squad sequel is also in the post, due to go into production in 2019, and that's aside from the now in-development The Batman from Matt Reeves, helmsman of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes. No director or writer has yet been attached to Leto's Joker movie. Many of these performances, like those by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger, are the stuff of acting legend, but then you get Jared Leto's unusual take on the character which can perhaps only be described as divisive.
