https://www.usatoday.com/story/life...caprio-joker-dont-hold-your-breath/625741001/ Leonardo DiCaprio playing The Joker would generate a lot of buzz, and DiCaprio continuing the momentum for DC's cinematic universe after Wonder Woman is almost a sure thing. DiCaprio is a legit star, a box office draw, and he's in the elite upper echelon for actors in Hollywood. But as the article suggests, I have a hard time believing anything will come of this. Scorsese might be able to convince Leo to do it, but DiCaprio is very selective about choosing his roles, so a superhero film is a longshot. Of course, everything could change with the right script, director, and a boatload of money. According to reports, Jared Leto is not happy about this. I thought Leto was okay in Suicide Squad, but to be fair, The Joker didn't have a significant amount of screen time. That, and a lot of fans have ridiculously high expectations for The Joker after The Dark Knight.
