Joaquin Phoenix Is Not Totally Opposed to Doing Joker 2
If the worst aspect of observation Joker was that you wanted even more Joaquin Phoenix as Prince of crime clown, you can rest assured to know that Joker 2 is entirely possible. Although no follow-up project is currently in preparation, the critical and financial success of the film certainly gives the possibility. Speaking about Popcorn's iconic role in with Peter Travers Phoenix shed some light on what it was like to become the Batman Archipelago. Joker was a "dream role" for him, Joaquin Phoenix hinted that it was so after he signed and be ready to reproduce the role in a follow-up film. Excerpt from the interview:
"I would not have thought it was the role of my dream, but now, honestly, I can not stop myself from Think about it.I have talked a lot to Todd about what we might do otherwise.To do – in general, just work together, but also, specifically, is there any other something with Joker that could be interesting, then it ended up being a dream role. "
Let's not start holding our breath. "I do not know that there is [somethingmoretoseewith Joker ]," Phoenix also said in the interview. This suggests that he is willing to replicate the role in another movie, but only if the right idea comes up. As for Phillips, the filmmaker does not seem as optimistic about the aftermath of a Joker stating clearly in an interview that a follow-up did not figure in their plans .
However, if the demand was there and that the people of Warner Bros. were also interested in continuing the story, Phillips admits that he is finally open to developing a potential sequel someday. "If he was willing to do it, and if people came to this film, and Warner came to us and said," You know what? If you could think of something … "Well, I have the feeling that he and I could think of something cool enough," confessed Phillips.
Bound: Joker 2 probably will not happen, but Joaquin Phoenix and Todd Phillips discuss their ideas
Directed by Phillips using a co-scripted script with Scott Silver , Joker presents a whole new story for the iconic supervillain. This version of the character presents Phoenix under the name of Arthur Fleck, a clown for hire and a stupid comedian who is flirting with Gotham City. One unfortunate event leads to another, resulting in Arthur's transition from a shy loner to a mad murderer, to a painted face. With Phoenix, the film is also performed by Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy and Brett Cullen. As this only serves to tell the story of Joker specifically, Batman appears in the film as in the role of the young Bruce Wayne, to years to become the savior of Gotham City.
Joker has proven to be a huge hit with critics, touting mostly positive critics despite its troubling content. He's also a big box-office winner, who has raised nearly $ 100 million during his opening weekend and smashed records. Nevertheless, the controversy continues about the violent content of the film and it remains to be seen how much it will affect the chances of recognition of the film at the Oscars. Anyway, most people seem to agree that Phoenix deserves at least a sign of the best actor at this event.
Who knows if we'll ever see an official sequel, but alone, Joker seems to be one of the most inescapable movies of 2019, even though some audience members feel disturbed. The representation of the character by Phoenix in particular is certainly worth the price of admission alone. For one reason or another, the movie certainly has a lot of people talking.
