“Joker 2” is officially happening with Todd Phillips Co-writing again…

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!

The Oscars… didn’t watch it but I actually wanted to though but lost cable TV yesterday…

I was planning on watching the Oscars last night but yesterday there was a cable TV/internet outage from Spectrum all day yesterday so I couldn’t watch the Oscars at all. I wanted to watch the Oscars ’cause I was curious on who was going to win for Best Picture and win for Best Lead Actor/Supporting Actor categories.

While the Oscars will have some liberal politics throughout the shows, I was happy with the winner results last night, though. Yes, “Parasite” made history and won most awards and they were all worthy. Like I said in the previous blog post, I saw “Parasite” over the weekend myself and thought the movie was amazing.

I was also glad for Jaoquin Phoenix for winning for his “Joker” role. Now that you think about it, two Joker actors are now Academy Award winners…. Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix which kind of cool if you think about it.

I’m disappointed that Tom Hanks didn’t get his third Oscar this year but Brad Pitt winning for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Cliff Booth in “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” was definitely worthy. Even though Pitt seemed to have slammed the Trump impeachment acquittal, I was glad for him anyways ’cause he was good in “Once Upon a Time…”. Pitt made the Cliff Booth role extremely entertaining and helped made that movie watchable. Yeah, Pitt is a die-hard liberal and a Trump hater but he’s still a talented actor, though.

I never saw “Toy Story 4” yet but I’m glad Toy Story got the Oscar spotlight once again and won Best Animated Feature. I love the Toy Story movies and gonna get around to seeing the 4th one sometime soon. I’m not really into children’s movies all that much but I’m a huge fan of Toy Story.

Even though I didn’t watch the Oscars last night when I wanted to, seems like an okay show for the most part. Seems like politics weren’t that bad this year.

I wish conservatives on twitter would stop attacking the Oscars and Hollywood all the time. Sure, I can understand why they would be turned off of Hollywood since Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and the Me Too movement going on lately but they need to get out of this bubble they’re living in of Hollywood being bad people and I’m about to have a rant about this soon. Trashing Hollywood isn’t good for America.
