Variety reported Tuesday that a “Suicide Squad” Joker spin-off movie starring Jared Leto is in the works.
People were quick to hilariously tear apart the idea on Twitter.
This isn’t the only Joker solo movie in the works: “The Hangover” director Todd Phillips is set to make another one.
Variety reported Tuesday that Jared Leto’s Joker from “Suicide Squad” is getting his own movie, and it didn’t take long for people to hilariously tear apart the idea on Twitter.
Leto’s Joker was already thoroughly mocked in 2016 when “Suicide Squad” was released for the character’s minimal screen time, even though Leto stayed in character throughout filming and tormented his co-stars. Leto reportedly sent the likes of condoms, anal beads, and a dead pig to his co-stars.
But that apparently isn’t stopping Warner Bros. from pursuing a standalone movie where Leto can flex his method acting even more, despite another Joker movie already being in development. Variety reported in February that Joaquin Phoenix was in talks to play the character for an origin film from “The Hangover” director Todd Phillips.
Below are some of the funniest reactions:

I’m very on board with them making a movie all about Jared Leto’s joker. Whatever occupies his time so he’s not available to appear in movies I’d ever actually see.
