Representatives for Leto have denied the claims when THR reached out and Azoff refused to comment. His terrifying efforts really weren't worth it in the end, as Leto's Joker was little more than a cameo in Suicide Squad.
Despite his apparent unhappiness at Todd Phillips' Joker being given the go-ahead, The Hollywood Reporters add that "Leto's representative says the actor is still happily working with Warner Bros. and notes that he's now shooting John Lee Hancock's Little Things, starring alongside Rami Malek and Denzel Washington, at the studio".More news: Florida bounces back with 38-27 win over Gamecocks
Jared Leto was allegedly "alienated and upset" when he wasn't asked to be in Joker.
Well, The Hollywood Reporter have provided new details about why Leto was vehemently opposed to Todd Phillips' new standalone film, Joker.

The article goes on to note that Leto felt like he was being strung along by Warner Bros. over getting his own Joker films, especially considering that he won an Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club.
In the final cut of Suicide Squad, Leto's screentime was limited to 10 minutes and the actor went on to complain about it later. "He will not reprise the role for Warners' upcoming DC movies Birds of Prey (a spinoff centered on Robbie's Harley Quinn) or in James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, due out in 2021". However, 'Joker' director Todd Phillips has made it very, very clear that you won't be seeing any of his.
It would be easy to argue that Leto's reported unhappiness over Joker may have been a factor in him leaving CAA, but a source of Leto's claims that the two competing Joker projects didn't motivate his decision.More news: Google Maps on iOS Will Now Let You Report Traffic Incidents
