From what has been released, “The Joker Origin Story Movie” will have Martin Scorsese Producing and Todd Phillips Directing.

While Jared Leto will reprise his role in the Suicide Squad sequel and a Harley Quinn spinoff, but the Joker origin film will have a different actor.

One interesting part is the setting of the production. “The intention is to make a gritty and grounded hard-boiled crime film set in early-80’s Gotham City”.

Right now, audiences are receiving the film in mixed ways. Some think that the story line needs to be left alone, while some are excited to see what Scorsese and Phillips will do with the story.
