'Joker' Sequel Officially In The Works At Warner Bros


Citing their own anonymous sources, Deadline reports that there are "no deals. nor even any negotiations" with Phillips for a Joker sequel.

There it is. Mere days after Joker crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office, it looks like a follow-up to the initially standalone DC Comics villain movie is on the cards.

I have made my feelings on Joker very clear, and while a part of me is glad for DC to have this win, at the same time, both Aquaman and Shazam are the kinds of movies that I wish would have become the template for upcoming DC movies.

I'm on record saying that JOKER was brilliant. and that brilliance was mainly due to the fact that the film was created as an ambiguous one-off with what "really happened" left up to the interpretation of each individual viewer.

Update: This report was updated to reflect the State Department's statement to Axios. "Very proud of the team", he mentioned. Pompeo defended his file, from former diplomats following heated criticism that he has not stood up for the State Division.


Pictures to reprise his role as director for the second Joker film, according to a report Wednesday from The Hollywood Reporter. Emmerich was taken aback, as this simply isn't how the studio operates, but sources say that Phillips walked away with the rights to at least one other DC story.

After becoming the first R-rated movie to make $1 billion at the box office, it's perhaps no surprise that Warner Bros.is actively pursuing a sequel for Joker. Especially if he chooses to give them as elaborate and risky an interpretation as he did the titular character in Joker.

The director, whose previous claim to fame was the Hangover trilogy, apparently proposed an entire "portfolio" of DC characters to explore in similarly toned stand-alone films. We'll also be able to expect Wonder Woman 1984 from director Patty Jenkins on June 5, 2020. Well played, Todd Phillips. Tell us in the comments section below.
