Rumor: Warner Bros. Wants DiCaprio For Joker Origin Movie

Todd Phillips Scot Silver Martin Scorsese

In the wake of the news that Leonardo DiCaprio starring in the Joker origin movie would be Warner Bros.' pip-dream, digital artist BossLogic has delivered a fan art rendering - giving us a better idea of what Leo as the psychopath comic book villain could look like. First, it has to be said that even the original report states that DiCaprio hasn't been approached and Scorsese hasn't officially joined the Joker stand-alone solo film.

But the award-winning actor has starred in no less than five full-length movies directed by Scorsese, including the 2006 crime drama, "The Departed", which won several Academy Awards, including Best Picture. After the character's debut in Suicide Squad, a solo movie for The Joker always appeared to be on the cards. DiCaprio is one of the biggest actors on the planet, and he hasn't done much of anything in the comic book realm. There's no offer in front of DiCaprio yet, and Scorsese's deal is not closed, so THR does make mention that the chances of DiCaprio actually saying "yes" to this could be "slim to none".

Even then, DiCaprio seems like a truly freakish choice for a Joker origin movie, unless there could be plans to show both a young Joker and as a villainous adult.

Jared Leto stars as The Joker in 2016's "Suicide Squad", alongside Margot Robbie, who played Harley Quinn. The new report is fueling previous rumors that critically-acclaimed director (and frequent DiCaprio collaborator) Martin Scorsese is getting involved with the project as a producer. "When Harry Met Sally on Benzedrine".

Todd Philips is also set to co-direct the film and Scott Silver will co-write the script.

Warner Bros.is making a new standalone movie about The Joker, and Jared Leto is reportedly not happy.

Warner Bros are trying their best to make us forget about that bad Batman vs. Superman film by giving us a Joker origin film. It's like a dark Joker. Insiders claim, according to The Hollywood Reporter, that Warner Bros.is, apparently, on the fast track of the movie's development as it has to contend with the actors' holding agreements.
