Insane week for DCEU news: Todd Phillips and Martin Scorsese working on Spin-off Joker Movie, 'The Batman' won't be part of Affleck universe, Jesse Eisenberg axed from 'Justice League' movie and new Joker/Harley movie in the works

What can I say? Warner Bros. and DC Films have had a crazy week. Yesterday, it was reported that there would be Joker spinoff movie in the works, with Todd Phillips directing, and Martin Scorsese executive producing! DC has said that it would be part of a new strand of non-continuity DC pictures. Which had us all wondering, will Matt Reeves‘ “The Batman” be part of those films? The answer was quite literally, yes. We also learned of the crazy reshoots the WB/DC were doing on “Justice League” for its November release and it seems like they were axing Jesse Eisenberg from the movie.  Now we can also report to you that a Joker and Harley Quinn movie is coming from writing/directing team Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (“Crazy Stupid Love,” “Focus” and “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”), with Jared Leto and Margot Robbie back in their respective roles. According to THR, the movie would follow “Suicide Squad 2,” which is apparently being fast-tracked, but still has no director. Phew, DC, slow down a bit.
