Director REVEALS details about Joker SEQUEL

If you’re hoping to see a sequel to Todd Phillip’s Joker, you might be out of luck. After a recent Joker screening in the City of Angels, Phillips revealed to those in attendance he and the studio “have no plan for a sequel.” 

“Anything Joaquin wants to do”

The director said his words in the previous comment were taking out of context. “The quote was, ‘I will do anything Joaquin wants to do,'” Phillips clarified. “And I would. But the movie’s not set up to [have] a sequel. We always pitched it as one movie, and that’s it.”

Phillips’ initial comments in the Total Film piece read as such, “If he was willing to do it, and if people show up to this movie, and Warners came to us and said, ‘You know what? If you guys could think of something…’ Well, I have a feeling that he and I could think of something pretty cool.”

Positive Reviews, generally

It currently holds a 76 percent Fresh rating as of this writing.

Review of the pre-screening

Joaquin Phoenix as the psychotic clown

 

ComicBook’s Brandon Davis loved the movie, giving it a perfect five out of five stars.

 

“Joker is loaded with mystery on top of its numerous twists,” Davis says in his review. “By the time it ends, viewers will be left with several questions about the experience, some of which might be scarily directed at themselves. Phoenix’s Arthur laughs his way through terrible scenarios. For this, the actor demands an Oscar nomination it might not be the only nod this DC Comics movie earns. The cinematography, score, and direction create something unlike anything before it – -and it’s terrifying, thrilling, and moving.”
