Well, Warner Bros. and DC greenlights Joker 2 and Todd Phillips is co-writing again. It is not yet known whether or not the other writer Scott Silver is coming back but we’ll see. It’s also not yet known whether or not Todd will direct “Joker 2” but it’s pretty likely he will.
The bigger question is will Joaquin Phoenix reprise his role as the Joker for the sequel? Well, the actor keeps flip flopping back and forth from what I’ve heard. One time he says the Joker movie should be a standalone film and next thing you know, he’s onto it. Now nobody knows for sure but I’m sure Warner Bros. is desperately gonna try to talk to him into it.
Good news the sequel is happening but I won’t bother if Phoenix is not gonna be in it ’cause I thought he did a great job with that role. I think Phoenix should come back for sure ’cause he makes an awesome Joker, in my opinion.
People complained about the first Joker movie ’cause of its gritty and over the top violence and gore. Well that’s how the Heath Ledger Joker was in “The Dark Knight” but nobody complained then. Do you think the crew of “Joker 2” will tone it down with the violence for the next movie? Fuck no. They’ll just make the next movie even more grittier and more graphic and I hope they do.
I loved the “Joker” movie myself and planning to give it a re-watch soon. Phoenix is definitely one of my favorite actors too, though. That guy is awesome!
