Jared Leto, who played the Joker in The Suicide Squad is reported to have tried to prevent Todd Phillips’ Joker film from being greenlit by Warner Bros. The Hollywood Reporter asserts that sources close to Leto claim that upon learning of the project, the Oscar-winning actor put plans into action to thwart Phillips' film.

The Hollywood Reporter alleges Leto complained to his agents at CAA, the agency that also represents Phillips. He reportedly also implored his music manager, Irving Azoff, to approach Warner Bros' parent company  to "kill the film." His demands were not met, and he has since left the agency for rival, WME.

According to THR sources, "Leto’s days as the Joker are likely are over" and "he will not reprise the role for Warners' upcoming DC movies Birds of Prey." The Reporter quoted on source close to the story who asked, "How do you play the Joker you established following [Phoenix]? It kind of ends his Joker run.”
