Jared Leto took on the mantle of the Joker in the much-maligned Suicide Squad, but reports of a Joker origin story produced by Martin Scorsese revealed that he won’t be the only one playing the role in DC Comics’ cinematic universe. But keeping track of which Joker is doing what can be a bit confusing—just ask Leto.
He and 30 Seconds To Mars guitarist Tomo Miličević sat down for an interview the launch event for Destiny 2 where he was asked just what was going on in the DC movie verse given the confusion in the reporting. Leto’s a bit confused too, and despite reports that he was upset at the idea of multiple Jokers running around, he gave a diplomatic response about how the Joker doesn’t belong to him.
“I love the Joker,” Leto said. “He’s a great character and really fun character to play. But it’s a big universe and when you play the Joker, there’s no ownership there. You have the honor of holding the baton for a little while and then passing it off. But there are other films in development, and I’m excited to see what comes from them.”
As of right now, there would be two Jokers. Leto would potentially appear in Suicide Squad 2 and the Harley Quinn spin-off Gotham City Sirens while the untitled Joker origin movie would have a different actor. It’s still too early to know if all three of those movies will go ahead smoothly, but at least in the early stages, Warner Bros. believes there’s plenty of Joker to go around for everyone.
