When the Joaquin Phoenix Joker film hit cinemas it set the box office on fire. It was a bleak character study on someone suffering from severe mental issues. It was well written and directed. It was a perfect self contained storyline. So naturally Warner Bros wants to turn it into a franchise of diminishing returns.
Now I have said on here that this would be a bad idea that can not and should not be allowed to happen. But we are talking about a studio who wants to change the race of Superman and call it “equality.”
Joker and its expected sequel will be set in their own cinematic universes and it is unclear whether or not Warner Brothers has plans to connect Phoenix’s version of the titular DC Comics villain to other films or HBO Max shows through the multiverse going forward. The sequel does not yet have a timetable for its release.
What do you think? Should there be a Joker sequel? Let us know in the comments.
