By Valeria Quintana

Jared Leto as JokerPHOENIX – We got to know Jared Leto’s take on the Joker in the 2016 movie, Suicide Squad. Now, Variety is reporting that Leto is expected to star and executive produce a stand-alone film, where he will reprise his role as the Joker.

The exact title, writers and details of the film are still unknown, but it’s supposed to “pave the way” for futureSuicide Squad spinoffs. Warner Brothers also recently announced that Harley Quinn would be getting her own spinoff movie, starring Margot Robbie.

The movie comes in an effort by DC to “expand” their universe, much like Marvel.

Leto has previously said that he hoped he would have the opportunity to expand on his character, and now he’s getting his chance.
