Although Joker performed by Jared Leto divided the fans, still in Warner Bros. they were delighted with him. Last year, Leto seemed to return as an iconic villain in three shows: “Suicide Squad 2”. “Joker & Harley Quinn” and “The Joker” (do not confuse with “Joker”in which Joaquin Phoenix plays the main role). Now, however, it looks like we will probably never see him in this role again.
Forbes magazine in an article devoted to the DC Universe cinema universe states that Warner Bros. is not currently interested “The Joker”. Apparently the project has not been completely deleted, but the chances of its resurrection in the future are minimal.
Chances for implementation have already been crossed out “Joker & Harley Quinn”, although this project had scriptwriters. All because Warner Bros. decided to focus on Harley Quinn, who will be one of the characters of the film triptych beginning with the spectacle “Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)”. The other parts will be: “Gotham City Sirens” and “Birds of Prey v Gotham City Sirens” (although Forbes questions whether this last part will be created).
Leto’s participation in “Suicide Squad 2” is also unlikely because, after James Gunn’s involvement as director, rumors spread across the network that he had received green light from Warner to create a film independent of what David Ayer had created.
