It seems as if Warner Bros has decided to clear up some of the proverbial clutter within the DC film universe. They are doing this by reportedly scrapping all of the projects involving Jared Leto’s version of the Joker.
This is according to a Forbes article. It seems that Leto’s Joker film has “fallen by the wayside” along with the “Mad Love-type Joker and Harley Quinn film.” Suicide Squad, itself, will reportedly move forward with a sort of “soft reboot,” and Forbes reports Margot Robbie’s Harley is not expected to return for the sequel.
“The Suicide Squad sequel…is expected to have a new cast of characters and avoid direct tie-in to the first film’s events,” Forbes reports. “Harley Quinn is not expected to return, and James Gunn’s script will be a new approach and rethinking of the property.”
News broke last year that Jared Leto’s Joker would be getting a solo film with him producing the project as well. Then it was followed by the announcement that DC would be a different revision with Joaquin Phoenix portraying the clown prince of crime and directed by Todd Phillips.
