Some fans have raised concern about the project when Todd Phillips negotiated an agreement to co-write the sequel to his huge hit Joker.
After the film’s release, development on a sequel was all but confirmed, but a recent piece in the Hollywood Reporter stated that Phillips was 100% on board to at least co-write the sequel. Phillips co-wrote and directed the 2019 remake, which starred Academy Award winner Joaquin Phoenix in the title role. Phoenix has yet to say whether or not he will return, but some DC fans are concerned about Joker 2.
Many fans were quick to point out that the first film, which was an origin narrative for the renowned Batman villain, provided a fairly thorough story, revealing the character’s history all the way up to Bruce Wayne’s parents’ deaths. Some have questioned whether the tale can go any further, while others have argued that another Gotham villain should get their own movie. Two-Face, the Penguin, the Riddler, Poison Ivy, and a slew of other characters might make excellent standalones, but the Joker is getting the spotlight.
It’s easy to see why Warner Bros. is eager to begin work on a sequel. Joker made almost $1 billion at the box office globally, while having a budget of only $70 million at most. In comparison to other comic book films, that’s a bargain. On a $300 million budget, the much-maligned 2017 edition of Justice League—the one before Snyder Cut—raked in $657 million.
