Joker 2 would be a sequel to the super hit movie Joker. Joker was released in 2019. It is a psychological thriller film directed and produced by Todd Phillips. The film is based on DC Comic characters. It features Joaquin Phoenix who plays the role of the Joker.
The failed clown and standup comedian Arthur Fleck looks for a connection in Gotham City. He wears two masks – the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in an attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. He was Isolated, bullied, and disregarded by society. Fleck’s descent into madness as he turns into the criminal mastermind known as The Joker.
Joker’s massive success in 2019 made people believe that villains are as impactful as superheroes in a film. Joaquin Phoenix’s character set a benchmark for how the villains should be.
There have been talks about whether fans will see Joaquin as the joker in the joker sequel. The chances for the joker sequel have risen because of the enormous accomplishment made by Joker in 2019.
All the signs pointed to no for joker’s sequel. As the director clearly said “there are no plans for a sequel” and “joker wasn’t set” for a sequel. It is still unclear if we will have a sequel.
What We Know About Roles and Characters in the Second Part
Except for the title character and Wayne family, all the other characters in the Joker film were not major DC characters or were invented.
The Joker sequel’s primary focus will be on our memorable villain who portrays the famous role of Joker. Given Joaquin’s performance in Joker that won him an Oscar for best actor, Warner Bros will want to get that performance back.
Phillips is in talks to return to direct Joker 2. The studio would want Joaquin Phoenix to return as Joker. However, Phoenix is unlikely to return for a follow up because of the aversion towards the franchise in the past. But it seems like the actor is down for the role in the Joker sequel. There are no official statements about who will be starred in the film.
There is a possibility that the sequel would introduce other major DC characters, possibly other villains.
Things are still not clear about who will appear in the sequel of Joker.
Possible Plot of Joker 2
How this plot will be is a little uncertain. By the end of the movie Joker, Arthur was utterly transformed into the villain. In the last scene of the movie, Arthur was seen in Arkham State Hospital, presumably arrested by the police for causing riots in Gotham City. The last scene shows Arthur dancing in the hospital’s corridors, leaving red footprints everywhere on the floor. From this scene, it can be presumed that he had killed the doctor who was examining him.
Now in the sequel, Arthur or Joker would be alive, and there is a chance that he escaped from the hospital. This feels like a very comic book movie.
There is also a chance that Bruce Wayne would grow up and take revenge for his parents killed in the Joker film.
Fans would also expect to see the relation of Arthur with his maybe stepbrother – Bruce Wayne. Robert Pattinson and Matt Reeves are also inspecting batman’s backstory.
It could also be assumed that the movie will have a fresh approach for a sequel and not be a continuation of the first film Joker.
However, Todd Phillips, in a recent interview, said that there were no plans for making a sequel.
Are there any connection between the New Batman Movie
Joker ended with the deaths of Thomas and Martha Wayne. This suggests a Joker sequel could factor in Batman’s movie. Batman’s origins seem to be off the table for a “Joker” sequel as Warner Bros is already producing a standalone Batman movie with director Matt Reeves and star Robert Pattinson. That film, entitled “The Batman,” already has a June 25, 2021 release date.
It is unclear to say if there will be a connection between Joker 2 and the new solo Batman movie.
Phoenix and Phillips both said a sequel would have a very different story than their previous record-breaking blockbuster film Joker.
When does New Joker 2 Come Out
At the moment it is difficult to say when the sequel will be out. However, some rumors say it is likely to release in the year 2021. There are no official announcements about when the Joker will come out. The movie is said to be delayed due to the global pandemic.
Joker was one of the best movies of 2019. This movie is one of the unique psychological thriller films. Joker has outperformed all expectations. The audience very much praised this movie. Joker star Joaquin Phoenix has won the best actor Oscar for his performance.
Along with this, Joker has won several other awards. The movie grossed more than $1 billion worldwide. This movie became the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time. It was also the sixth highest-grossing film of 2019. Joker is an iconic film from the DC universe.
Joker 2 is likely to be made, but there is no official information about its release date. The sequel would be great for the fans of the Joker film. People would again love to see Joaquin Phoenix as the main lead in the film.
The plot and the stars of the sequel are still unknown.
