Jared Leto Not Pleased With Joker Origin Rumors

While most people are excited for the rumored Joker origin film, one man understandably isn't, and that man is Jared Leto. The 30 Seconds to Mars vocalist isn't smiling about the rumors surrounding the project, considering the amount of buzz it's getting. Considering how the actor is still attached to the character for Suicide Squad 2 and a rumored spin-off with Harley Quinn, it's easy to see why the actor isn't pleased with the hype for the other film.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that Leto was caught off guard by the rumors, and has let his displeasure be known to his CAA agents. Admittedly, the film hasn't been officially revealed, but the fact that so many news outlets are discussing it must be anger inducing. Having two Jokers, one of whom might be Leonardo DiCaprio, could be confusing for audiences, since they will both be in different films.

Rumor has it that the Joker origin film will be the start of a non-DCEU universe, which is fairly exciting for comic book fans. This means that the brand can be used to tell stories with different actors, which has some appeal. It's very "comic booky," which is great for fans, but will likely leave most casual audiences confused.

Until an official announcement is made, we will just have to assume that the non-DCEU brand is a rumor. Leto will reprise his role as The Joker for Suicide Squad 2 and the rumored spin-off with Harley.
