Per Variety, it looks like we won't be starving for Joker movies anytime soon as Jared Leto's Joker will now receive his own standalone feature that is wholly unconnected from the Todd Phillips-directed origin feature that was announced previous year. The rumours were that Phillips' film would delve into the early history of the Clown Prince of Crime. This time, the honor of starring in the project belongs to Jared Leto, who first debuted his take on the iconic villain in 2016's Suicide Squad. It's also not clear what the movie would be about, but it should connect to "Suicide Squad" or the sequel in some way. Many of these performances, like those by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger, are the stuff of acting legend, but then you get Jared Leto's unusual take on the character which can perhaps only be described as divisive.
There has been no update on Ben Affleck's solo Batman movie, to be directed by Matt Reeves.

Kevin Durant added 26 points, nine rebounds, six assists and three blocks, while Klay Thompson scored 24 points. Familiarity is quickly breeding contempt.
In news that only Jared Leto wants, Jared Leto is set to reprise his role as The Joker in a new Suicide Squad spin-off. Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to play the character in that film but no overlap between the two is expected.
While there are no known details for what this Leto-led Joker movie's plot may be, Kroll says "the studio's idea is to expand on the world created by "Suicide Squad" and tie into future installments of that property". Much like how Warner Bros. stressed past year that that film did not mean Leto was out as the Clown Prince of Crime in the DCU, it would seem Phillips' film isn't off the table either. Yet. One movie will be the origin story, while Jared Leto's will focus on the partly established character that we saw glimpses of during Suicide Squad.
