You Weren't Happy With A New Joker? Apparently Neither Was Jared Leto

Deadline Sick Chirpse

DiCaprio and Scorsese have a long, brilliant screen history together, from Gangs of NY to The Wolf of Wall Street, and Warners want to team them up along with director Todd Phillips for the Joker tale, according to The Hollywood Reporter. While Jared Leto's Suicide Squad incarnation of the character is due to appear in multiple upcoming movies (both a proper sequel and a spin-off with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn) this one would be something else, with a different actor playing the Clown Prince of Crime.

Where does Jared Leto stand in all of this?

Oof. Please don't. First of all, it's unlikely DiCaprio would even take the role, considering Heath Ledger so famously played the Joker less than a decade ago, and DiCaprio has always avoided these types of parts.

It should be noted, however, that this doesn't rule out the possibility that DiCaprio being in the movie at all, however. General moviegoing audiences aren't usually aware of the differences between superhero franchises, so confusion is to be expected. You see, Warner Bros wants to create two universes. Despite his willingness to play the Joker now, Leto has been very vocal about his displeasure with the studio for how his performance was handled in #SuicideSquad.

Facebook readies Bunim/Murray's "Ball in the Family"
They're eccentric and bombastic, but the show seems to be attempting to showcase the softer side of the Ball family. Additional episodes will start appearing on Facebook every Sunday, starting September 10.

Do you want to know where he got those scars?

And this is where it starts to get even more interesting. If I die anytime soon, it's probably likely that it'll surface somewhere.

Taking that into account, there's a risk of this being another blow in their relationship. The chances of DiCaprio joining the project are "slim to none", and in fact, Scorsese is not officially attached to the project yet either.

MMA fighter and actor/comedian Brendan Schaub, who's friends with Phillips' agent, revealed this week on Joe Rogan Experience that the "super-dark" film will feature a Joker who was bullied as a kid because of his permanent smile.
