LOS ANGELES (15th Nov, 2019): Todd Phillips has been asked a thousand times about making a sequel to his outstanding film Joker, but the director has dodged all these questions each and every time.
Batman’s iconic nemesis debuted in the early 1940’s. Despite originally intended to be a one-off villain, editorial intervention allowed the character to survive throughout the decades. On top of this, the Joker character has been adapted multiple times. One of the most lovable and acceptable character of Joker, played by both Jack Nicholson in Tim Burton’s Batman and Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.
The character was also recently played in Suicide Squad by Jared Leto but reportedly failed to impress the audience. We all agree on a point that Joaquin Phoenix stole the show by playing the character in Todd Phillips’s Joker.
However, Phillips is now more open to making a sequel of Joker. Yes, it’s true, we all are very excited about the sequel of Joker. Ahan! don’t need to be happier because Todd Phillips will only make sequel on one specific condition.
The diretor has signalled towards the things that have been pointed by Joaquin Phoenix in the past about a possible sequel.
In his recent interview with The Los Angeles Times, Phillips explained his condition and said, “It couldn’t just be this wild and crazy movie about the Clown Prince of Crime. It would have to have some thematic resonance in a similar way that Joker does. Because I think that’s ultimately why the movie connected, it’s what’s going on underneath. So many movies are about the spark and this is about the powder. If you could capture that again in a real way, that would be interesting.”
