In addition to the impending Suicide Squad 2 with director Gavin O'Connor, a "Mad Love" style movie with Harley and Joker is also in development.

The outlet's sources say that Leto is set to star and executive produce a standalone Joker movie that will pave the way for future Suicide Squad-related spin-offs. " This is in keeping with Warner Bros.' recent push for various DCU projects meant to act as possible outlets for Margot Robbie's incarnation of Harley Quinn, such as Birds of Prey".

Jared Leto debuted as Joker in 2016's Suicide Squad, and Leto had roles recently in Blade Runner: 2049 and the Netflix movie, The Outsider. To make matters worse, Suicide Squad was marketed to look like it was Leto's movie, which it clearly wasn't. One minute, Ben Affleck still wants to play the character in the DCEU, but reportedly won't be a part of The Batman, which he was initially going to write, direct, and star in. 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.

As for the movie starring Leto's Joker, it's not yet known when that will go into production.

Plot details are now unknown, but the studio's idea is to expand on the world created by "Suicide Squad" and tie into future installments of that property. That includes this Joker standalone, and also Harley Quinn's own "Birds of Prey" movie, which may or may not feature Penguin.

Despite earning awful reviews, "Suicide Squad" (2016) made Warner Bros. nearly $747 million at the worldwide box office. All six - yes, you read that correctly - six of them.
