Joker Sequel in the Works at Warner Bros
Director Todd Phillips initially said that he had no intention of making a second Joker film, and the first movie doesn't exactly set itself up for more. But things have changed thanks to the box office performance, and a Joker sequel is now on the way. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is moving forward with another Joker movie, bringing back Phillips as the director and co-writer. Scott Silver, who wrote the first Joker alongside Phillips, will return to pen the sequel and star Joaquin Phoenix is likely coming back as well. Following the success of Joker, Phillips met with Warner Bros. Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich and asked to develop an entire franchise based on the origin stories of DC villains. He reportedly asked for access to DC's entire library of villains for the project, though he didn't get it. Phillips was, however, given one or two characters to develop for solo movies. There's no word yet as to which characters he's going to be using for these projects.
