They want DiCaprio or another A-lister to play the character as a gritty crime boss in a Scorsese-esque Gotham underworld, according to THR. What we do know about the Joker origin story for sure is that it's set to be be directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover trilogy, War Dogs) and is separate from the DC Extended Universe. However, a new report from The Hollywood Reporter suggests one of the biggest names working in Hollywood today could nab a starring role in the upcoming DC Comics adaptation.

Another potential twist has emerged in Warner Bros.' plans for a Joker origin movie with a report that the studio may be hoping to woo Oscar victor Leonardo DiCaprio to star as the Clown Prince of Crime.

Four US Companies Have Been Contracted to Build Prototype Border Walls
There were two requests for proposals: a 30-foot high concrete wall design and then any other alternatives. More recently, Trump threatened a government shutdown if Congress did not agree to fund the project.

Leo doesn't typically do movie franchises because he's a real actor who hasn't reached the point of his career where he's only doing films for money.

In return, if Scorsese can secure DiCaprio, it's likely that he will have found a new home for his future, more personal, films, something that the financial failure of the $50 million "Silence" had left him in need of.

Trump Ends DACA, But He May Still Hold DREAMers Hostage
Now, it appears he has reversed course once again, and DACA as we currently know it will no longer exist. The program has given almost 800,000 people a reprieve from deportations.

The recently announced Joker movie - which doesn't yet have a title or a release date - will tell the supervillain's origin story. Part of this report is the fact that Jared Leto was upset when he learned of the studio's plans. That may be why the Joker & Harley Quinn movie got such a fast track announcement last week.

Warner Bros.is making a new standalone movie about The Joker, and Jared Leto is reportedly not happy.

Manafort Probe Heats Up: Mueller Joins Forces With New York Attorney General
Additionally, earlier this summer, FBI agents raided Manafort's home as part of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation. Trump has denied any collusion by his campaign and has condemned the investigation as political witch hunt.

Although only in the early development stages, the film is expected to be vastly different than the comic book movies Marvel has pumped out in recent years. Well, he's still The Joker is the DC Universe that Marvel created in Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad. Out of all of them, there's one that has us both intrigued and skeptical.
