Is Suicide Squad Getting a Joker Spin-Off?

Is Suicide Squad Getting a Joker Spin-Off?by

Despite having been critically lambasted upon its release and having received mixed reviews from moviegoers, DC movie spin-off Suicide Squad – which focuses on a band of Gotham villains and misfits coming together to fight a common enemy (and not Batman) – remains something of a cult entity. Even two years on, it’s still being discussed – it’s remained at the heart of DC and Warner Bros’ strategy for cracking the comic book movie market as it is remarkably different to its traditional strand of hero movies – and, after all, it won an Academy Award for hair and make-up. All things considered, however – is the world ready for Suicide Squad sequels or spin-offs?

All have been mooted and mulled over in the past 18 months – meaning that DC, or at least sources close to the epicenter, are clearly very serious about continuing to push the alternative side of DC comic movies to a global audience. Among the most divisive moments in the initial movie included Jared Leto’s Joker – who had less appearance time in the picture than many had been anticipating – and whose performance and reported back-stage endeavours remain fairly controversial to this day. Sure – following the likes of Heath Ledger’s legendary performance in The Dark Knight wasn’t ever going to be easy – and for many people, Mark Hamill will always be the voice of The Joker – but there doesn’t ever seem to have been so much debate surrounding a character’s performance of this particular character before.

Regardless, it seems that Leto may be starring and executive producing a standalone movie that expands on the world beyond Suicide Squad in the near future. Sources suggest that this could be a move to help broaden Suicide Squad and its rag-tag mob into their own cinematic universe of sorts – perhaps to balance against Marvel’s own ground-breaking run of interlocking pictures. Certainly, whether or not you appreciated Suicide Squad or even Leto’s performance alone, it seems that Warner Bros could be more than happy to push ahead with a standalone movie to help ease us into the world of this very divisive Joker.

A sequel to Suicide Squad is apparently expected very soon – next year, according to sources – so by then, we could well know more about where DC and Warner Bros are heading – as always, we will have more movie news for you as and when it arises!
