The Batman: What Happens To Jared Leto’s Joker?
The Batman stand alone movie has begun to roll and as Ben Affleck is currently busy filming Justice League, his next director adventure has also started to take place.With Ben Affleck playing the Batman, the DCEU movie has reportedly cast Joe Manganiello as Deathstroke.
Getting to see the True Blood actor as Deathstroke after getting Jared Leto as Joker and Will Smith as Deadshot is truly worth something. But the real question here is the main villain of The Batman solo movie. If Deathstroke is the main villain then what is to become of to Jared Leto’s Joker?
Jared Leto plays an extremely important role in the DC movies with him playing the role of Joker in the DCEU; it is only natural for the makers to continuously use the iconic villain in as many movies as they can. However, after Suicide Squad, it is not really known as to when Jared Leto will be reprising his role.
Many thought including myself that Jared Leto’s Joker would definitely end up as the main villain of The Batman movie but with news confirming Deathstroke as the main villain, it makes many wonder as to what will happen to the Joker’s future.
Maybe there are other movies in which he will show up but not getting to see Batman and the Joker in the same movie is surly bound to be disastrous for DC as this hero-villain combo is one of the most popular and famous in the world. The only reason why fans would love to watch The Batman movie would be for Batman and Joker fighting.
Since it has been hinted that the solo movie will be having a few known villains, the Joker could probably end up being one of the villains that the Dark Crusader will be fighting in his solo big screen movie. Also since Will Smith’s involvement was teased in the movie, the concept of the Good, the Bad, and the Evil would fit well don’t you think?
The Batman solo movie is rumored to release in 2018 lets just hope the joker gets his part.
