Atlanta's Lakeith Stanfield says he wants to make his own Joker movie in which he'd play the titular character - and he's so confident he'll get he opportunity, he says it's "inevitable."

"I want people to dress up as me as black Joker, when that inevitably happens,” Stanfield tells Deadline. “I just think there are so many things that haven’t been touched yet in terms of how the performance can be delivered. When I make the movie myself.”

Stanfield also mentions his interest in directing his own films.

The 27-year-old actor is currently filming Rian Johnson's Knives Out, and is reported to be starring in an adaptation of Ron Wimberly's Prince of Cats OGN.
