  • Jared Leto reportedly had trouble putting on a happy face when hearing about the new

  • Joker movie.

  • According to a story published by The Hollywood Reporter detailing how former Joker producer

  • Martin Scorsese may have contributed to the film after dropping his producing credit,

  • Jared Leto who played the Joker in 2016's Suicide Squad was none too pleased about studio

  • Warner Bros. moving forward with the Joker origin story film starring Joaquin Phoenix.

  • Reportedly, Leto was left feeling out in the cold when former Warner Bros. president Kevin

  • Tsujihara and current studio chief Toby Emmerich decided to give the project the greenlight.

  • Emmerich is said to have, quote, "loved the script" that Phillips co-wrote with Academy

  • Award-nominated screenwriter Scott Silver, though he did reportedly feel that the gritty

  • nature of the story might fit better outside of the standard DC Extended Universe, of which

  • Suicide Squad is a part.

  • Nonetheless, Emmerich was taken with Joker, as was Tsujihara, and the rest is history.

  • Neither Leto nor any representatives of his have come forward to confirm or deny the claim

  • that he was hurt over the Phoenix-led Joker, but the actor's purported reaction to hearing

  • the news of the project getting the greenlight may be accurate given past Joker-related events.

  • As fans know, Leto's Joker didn't have nearly as prominent a role in Suicide Squad as expected.

  • His involvement essentially amounted to an extended cameo rather than a starring part,

  • which left audiences and Leto disappointed and confused.

  • "Oh, I'm not gonna kill ya.

  • I'm just gonna hurt yareally, really bad."

  • Director David Ayer even admitted that he should have included more of Leto's Joker

  • in the film.

  • In an open letter published in January 2017, Ayer wrote:

  • "Wish I had a time machine.

  • I'd make Joker the main villain and engineer a more grounded story.

  • I have to take the good and bad and learn from it."

  • That considered, one can easily see how Leto may have felt alienated and upset when Warner

  • Bros. chose to go ahead with Phillips and Phoenix's Joker movie, the idea for which

  • Phillips pitched to Warner Bros. in August 2016, the same month that Suicide Squad opened

  • in theaters.

  • Learning one year later that a different actor would get the chance to play the Joker in

  • his very own solo movie very well might have crushed Leto's spirits even if Warner Bros.

  • executives emphasized that the project wouldn't be the end of Leto's Joker.

  • Shortly after Warner Bros. and DC Films made the announcement about the Joker standalone

  • film, The Hollywood Reporter ran a piece noting that Leto made sure his agents knew he wasn't

  • happy with the idea of multiple, competing Jokers.

  • Leto later told On Demand Entertainment that he was, quote, "a little confused" about the

  • future plans for the Joker which, at the time, included a spin-off movie featuring his Joker

  • and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn.

  • However, he maintained a level head.

  • He admitted:

  • "I love the Joker.

  • He's a great character and really fun character to play.

  • But it's a big universe and when you play the Joker, there's no ownership there.

  • You have the honor of holding the baton for a little while and then passing it off.

  • There are other films that are in development and I'm excited to see what comes from them."

  • "Are you sweet-talking me?

  • Ah hah hah."

  • Leto's disposition likely turned sunny in June 2018, when it was reported that Warner

  • Bros. was developing a standalone Joker movie featuring Leto's iteration of the infamous

  • DC Comics villain.

  • The project, which Leto was also set to be credited on as an executive producer, was

  • apparently intended to be the first of several Suicide Squad off-shoots.

  • Unfortunately, it appears that both the Joker-Harley Quinn spin-off film and the Joker solo flick

  • starring Leto have since been scrapped.

  • In February 2019, Forbes ran a piece noting that both projects had, quote, "fallen by

  • the wayside" at Warner Bros.

  • As of October 2019, we don't know for certain what the future holds for Leto's Joker.

  • The easiest bet is that he could appear in James Gunn's upcoming sequel-slash-reboot

  • The Suicide Squad, which features a mix of returning characters and fresh faces.

  • There's been no formal announcement about his possible involvement, though, so it's

  • a toss-up whether or not Leto will grace the silver screen and flash Joker's silver teeth

  • in 2021's The Suicide Squad.
