Jared Leto reportedly tried to pressure Warner Brothers to kill their smash hit “Joker” because he was so jealous over Joaquin Phoenix's casting in the lead role.
Leto played the psychopathic villain in “Suicide Squad”. He complained about the film to his agents, who also happen to represent “Joker” director Todd Phillips.
He then went to his music manager, Irving Azoff, hoping to get him to kill the film.
The Hollywood Reporter previously wrote that Leto was hoping to star in a stand-alone Joker film of his own, and was furious when Warner Brothers cast Joaquin in the Phillips’ film.
