Leonardo DiCaprio as the Joker?

That’s what the fever swamp rumor mill is suggesting: “Sources say Warners will make an ambitious attempt to use [Martin] Scorsese to bring Leonardo DiCaprio into the world of comic-book movies.” The idea is that Scorsese and DiCaprio work together a lot, and thus having the one might entice the other to play the Joker for Scorsese’s DC Comics art film*.  Apparently this would not replace Jared Leto in DCU continuity, which will either please you or sadden you, depending.

DC wants to do a Joker origin story.

Warner Bros and DC are in the early stages of another Batman Universe spinoff movie, this one telling the origin story of the signature villain The Joker. The studio has set The Hangover‘s Todd Phillips to co-write a script with 8 Mile scribe Scott Silver. Phillips will direct the movie, and Martin Scorsese will produce it with Phillips. This will be the first film under a new banner that has yet to be named in which WB can expand the canon of DC properties and create unique storylines with different actors playing the iconic characters.

Stories like this are why I love this country. We are simply too big and too majestic to be fettered by any requirement of a narrative that makes coherent sense.
