Leonardo DiCaprio is the favorite to take on the role of the Joker in the new movie about the Batman villain.
Sources say Warner Bros. is interested in an A-lister to play the Joker and it has its sights set on the Oscar-winning actor.
The studio hopes by bringing in Martin Scorsese as the producer. It will help to bring in Leo who has worked with the Oscar-winning director several times in the past.
The rumor comes after it was revealed that Jared Leto, who starred in last year's “Suicide Squad” won’t be back for the movie.
And fans are LOVING the idea...
