If Harley Quinn can get her own film, so can the Joker.

Leto will star and exec produce the untitled Joker standalone film set within the DC Extended Universe.
Todd Phillips (Hangover) is currently developing a Joker origins film for the studio, this will be set up under a different banner of DC films, separate from the DCEU. This allows the studio to use the same characters without tying down to a larger shared universe. Joaquin Phoenix is set to star in Phillips’ Joker pic.
It’s not known when Leto’s film will go into production. The studio along with Leto will now turn their attention to finding a writer.
