Actor Jared Leto’s incarnation of Batman villain The Joker is getting his own movie. Warner Bros. is in the early stages of developing a stand-alone project and is currently hunting for writers for a take, reports

Leto would star and executive produce the solo film that is set in the Suicide Squad universe.

Suicide Squad was directed by David Ayer and featured an array of DC villains as anti-heroes. This is the latest DC movie project being developed by Warner that is focusing on Joker and other villains.

The studio is already developing a so-called Joker origins movie, which would be directed by Todd Phillips and would potentially star Joaquin Phoenix. Other films on DC’s upcoming slate include a Harley Quinn spinoff, Suicide Squad 2, Shazam!, Wonder Woman 2 and Aquaman, which is scheduled for release in November.

There has been no update on Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie, to be directed by Matt Reeves.

The internet has not reacted positively to the news of Leto getting his own movie. The character appeared in a glorified cameo in Suicide Squad, and the Oscar-winner had voiced his displeasure at being cut out of the film. He’d also expressed a desire to further explore the Joker in future films.
