Re: The Joker getting solo movie

Di Caprio makes no sense, he's like 3 years younger than Leto. As much as I hate Joker's design, Leto deserves the movie since a lot of scenes were cut

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

They should cast a young, up and coming actor to portray Joker in his youth and create some contrast between this iteration and Leto's. Plus in all likelihood Leo, or any good actor will outshine Jared with a meatier role at their disposal, and it won't be close to a fair fight since Leto was barely in SS.

Jonathan Tucker is probably a little older than what they'd be going for, but Tucker would own Joker.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

I won't be adverse to a film about Joker that was literally a documentary set within the DCEU.

Have the framing be Gordon Godfrey presenting a documentary on the Joker, maybe in the style of a 'This Is Your Life' show. Allows for talking heads and guests delving into the Joker's past which can include cameos from Bruce Wayne, James Gordon, Barbara Gordon etc.

Joker eventually hijacks the show and holds everyone hostage. Write an ending from that and I think you'd have a genuinely different type of movie that allows for world building with other characters.

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

Leonardo would make a great Jack Nicholson-esque Joker, especially if Scorcese were involved. However, for an ORIGIN film, someone 15-20 years younger would suffice. Who? I have no idea.

Totally agree here. Figure that they will go more the 8-12 range for the jokers age on an origin story and be a new kid actor that would have some commercial and small role parts in a series or multiple ones.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This has disaster written all over it. They are going with one of the most iconic characters in the history! I'm, not sure I can get into a joker origin story.

Lets see how this plays out:
- Young boy/joker, single mother.
- Boy/joker is shy, doesn't talk much
- mother marries a man, hes the only father boy knows.
- father gets drunk and is abusive over time
- In a fit of rage thinking mother is cheating on father and she wants to leave father, father starts beating mother and boy is witness. Boy is sad and crying, father puts smile on boys face. Then father kills mother, then kills himself after saying something dumb like "now you'll always be happy".
- after surgery boy is in a foster home
- back to school he is bullied and teased
- Queue even more traumatic moment where boy starts getting evil/even.
- all starts around halloween when people at school use makeup to look like him making him out to be hideous.


Ok, that's about all I want to write at this time. Think we all get the gist of it and I have other shit to do. lol.

Oh for those not happy with the above sequences!
Joker was born a girl and at the age of 8 decided that she was really a boy and wanted to go through those changes. She just wasn't happy being a girl. So daddy who was even MORE evil than previously thought carved her up real good. She eventually moves on and gets the sex change. Sadly, the drugs she had to take to be more 'male' were experimental and caused her to become a bit homicidal.

The end. :smile2:

It's like you watched Sleepaway Camp, then puked up the origin stories from The Dark Knight on top!

Re: The Joker getting solo movie

Ok, I'm trying to salvage this in my mind. I pray it's singular project in a "universe" of it's own and doesn't aim to serve any DCEU nonsense.

If it's done in a crime-noir fashion like Dark Knight (it is a Scorcese production, right?) and less of a typical "superhero" movie fashion with a good lead (Leo? Gyllenhaal? Franco? What, too big? Fine, Adam Driver), perhaps I'll be sucked it.

Jared Leto’s Joker Is Getting His Own Movie

Warner Bros. is looking to expand on Jared Leto’s version of the Joker, which debuted in 2016’s “Suicide Squad,” with a movie of his own.

Sources tell Variety that Leto is set to star and exec produce an untitled standalone film, paving the way for future movies branching from “Suicide Squad.”

Plot details are currently unknown, but the studio’s idea is to expand on the world created by “Suicide Squad” and tie into future installments of that property. Warner Bros. already announced that Margot Robbie’s version of Harley Quinn would be getting her own movie with a “Birds of Prey” feature, and the next goal was setting up a film for Leto’s Joker.

When Warner Bros. announced last fall that it was developing a Joker origin tale from Todd Phillips, the studio emphasized that this did not mean the end for Leto’s Joker. Rather, Phillips’ film would fall under a new origins banner that would be separate from the current cinematic DC universe. This new banner would allow multiple actors and versions based on the same character with no overlap, and WB has already tapped Joaquin Phoenix to star in Phillips’ Joker pic.
