Jared Leto recently told NME that he would like to continue playing the role in a potential Suicide Squad sequel, and/or a spin-off film centered on the Batman archvillain. “Yes, I think that would be great to dive in deeper to The Joker and expand the story, and to learn more about this sick and twisted – but lovely – strange man,” Leto said. “I’d like to see more of The Joker in Suicide Squad 2: we shot so much footage; there are so many scenes that aren’t in the film. I haven’t seen the movie yet, so I don’t know what’s been cut and what’s not, but I understand [this Suicide Squad film] is a bit of an introduction to The Joker. It’s more of a supporting part than it could have been, had they used everything – but there’s a method to [the filmmakers’] madness.”

He added, “I mean it really depends on the response. If people respond to this Joker and they have a good time with this version of The Joker then I can imagine him coming back. But if not, I’ll just go live in a f—– cave somewhere.”
