The new film will be in addition to the planned Harley Quinn feature with Margot Robbie, as well as Todd Phillips’ film revolving around the origins of The Joker, which is currently in development. Joaquin Phoenix is reportedly attached for the role in that movie, which is set outside the running D.C. extended universe.
