By bringing on Martin Scorsese as a producer the studio hopes to use the legendary filmmaker to lure his longtime collaborator into the world of comic book franchises

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros.is keen to get DiCaprio interested in the project, which is part of the reason they want his frequent collaborator Scorsese to produce.

THR notes that Scorsese's involvement "could elevate and diversify the studio's contributions to the genre, creating the potential to make awards-worthy films such as Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy". Jared Leto played the Joker past year for Suicide Squad, and he's reportedly not happy about the idea of multiple film franchises with different incarnations of the villain.

Warner Bros are trying their best to make us forget about that bad Batman vs. Superman film by giving us a Joker origin film.

We had already heard that a Martin Scorsese produced film about The Joker was in the works and that Jared Leto would NOT be playing the villain. This comes as DiCaprio has made a career of avoiding tent-pole Hollywood blockbusters and franchises.

The idea of having two different big screen versions of the Joker developing at the same time was met with much skepticism from a lot of people, including apparently Jared Leto himself. It's still uncertain whether or not Ben Affleck will portray the Caped Crusader in this upcoming film.

While the directorial duties appear to be in order, there is no current offer to DiCaprio. "But the attempt in itself sends a signal to talent that Warners wants to hire serious filmmakers to make serious films".

Jared Leto as the Joker in Suicide Squad. Considering DC's shaky track record (Wonder Woman aside), it'd be a risk he simply doesn't have to take. Leo has starred in several Scorsese films, including The Wolf Of Wall Street and The Departed with former Joker Jack Nicholson. That should smooth over any hurt feelings it may have also helped the DCEU simply adding a new movie to the lineup that wasn't there to begin with.
