The most surprising film of last year perhaps was The Joker. Bagging over a billion dollars on its first film, even if they don’t have a script, creators would want to push for a second film.
Joker was nominated for eleven different Academy Awards, including Best Director, Best Picture, and Best Actor, which would be watchable again on the big screen in theaters owing to its limited rerelease by the creators through January 24th before the February’s Oscar ceremony. The film is also available on DVD, Digital HD, and all platforms of Blu-Ray.
Is The Joker Sequel Really Happening?
Following the critical success of The Joker in 2019, Phillips had a meeting with the Warner Bros. Motion Picture’s Group chairman Toby Emmerich to take his view to develop an entire franchise based on the origin stories of DC villains. He supposedly asked for ingress to DC’s roster of villains to see them as a prospect; he didn’t get the chance. Philips gave a chance to the artist associated with developing some characters for the new movie. There’s no clue whether what he’s going to do with these characters.
Warner Bros. had alternatives in site for Phoenix to return on a follow-up for the film, so the actor returns as a more refined, sinister, and complete Joker. This ain’t the least bit whammy, reflecting on his grande performance, it is the most likely to be universally-praised by now. As it so happens, there is enough whir surrounding Phoenix as it is, so why not tap on the potential and come up with another Joker. Phoneix is allegedly on the list for Academy Awards and Oscars, and expect him to be a strong contender.
Joker Puts Other DC films to Shame
Joker is one of the only four DC movies to surpass the $1 billion thresholds, and it has collected the most revenue out of the bunch. In contradistinction to The Dark Knight Trilogy and Aquaman, Joker merely costs around $60 million to produce compared to hundreds of million dollars in the former, making it the biggest box office haul in a long time.
