Is there a solo Joker movie on the way?

Joker

Add this one to the list of DCEU announcements you had never expected…

We’ve known for a whilst that David Ayer and Margot Robbie are working together on a Gotham City Sirens film. Although it didn’t form part of the SDCC announcement reel Ayer has publicly stated that work continues on the film.  Well today Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. are also working on a solo Joker film. But there’s a catch…

The report states that Warner Bros. and DC Comics are also working on a series of films to be set OUTSIDE of the DCEU. This opens up the potential for a series of Elseworlds tales on film which could be very interesting. Deadline go on to state that the film will not star Jared Leto as it will be set outside of the universe and time period of the current DCEU.

The films currently being masterminded by writer/director Todd Phillips with input by none other than Martin Scorsese acting as producer. With Warner aiming for a gangster Gotham City circa-1980’s his previous work should come in handy!

Would you be interested to see a solo Joker movie on the big screen?
