The new spinoff does not yet have a writer or director attached to helm, and is set in the DC Comics universe which is also the home of movies like Suicide Squad, Justice League, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and more.

A separate film, taking place outside the DC Universe, telling the origin story of The Joker has also been rumored--this one with Joaquin Phoenix in talks to star. Varietyreported earlier this year that director Todd Phillips as picked Phoenix as his top choice for a completely different film from the one Leto is producing.
