Warner Bros Creating Whole New Universe So Leonardo DiCaprio Can Play the Joker

Warner Bros are trying their best to make us forget about that terrible Batman vs. Superman film by giving us a Joker origin film. Instead of using Jared Leto, who appeared as The Joker for like 10-minutes in Suicide Squad, the production company wants a bigger star.

They want the biggest star possible and the greatest actor of our generation.

They want Leo.

And they’re going to use Martin Scorsese to get him. Scorsese was listed as a producer on the upcoming Joker film when it was announced last week, even though his deal hasn’t been officially signed and he probably won’t do anything for the movie other than call up Leonardo DiCaprio.

Where does Jared Leto stand in all of this? Well, he’s still The Joker is the DC Universe that Marvel created in Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad. But this isn’t a DC Universe film. You see, Warner Bros wants to create two universes. A DC Universe where Ben Affleck sucks and a CD (yes, I just flipped the letters, that’s not the usual name) Universe where Ben Affleck doesn’t exist.

Got it?

The CD Universe would allow Warner Bros to create standalone films with serious actors like Leo and the DC Universe would allow them to make terrible films that no one will want to see because who wants to watch Jared Leto after you’ve watched Leo?

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. That’s why Warner Bros is creating this standalone CD Universe. To lure the Leos of the world into comic book hell.

And to confuse the hell out of and piss off nerds everywhere.

Leo hasn’t been seen on screen since The Revenant because he’s been too busy banging models. But he has a couple of movies in pre-production. Given that he only does roughly one movie a year, don’t expect to Leo as The Joker until 2020.

Actually, don’t expect to see Leo as The Joker ever.
