The sequel to the critically acclaimed Joker was almost guaranteed to happen, but Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix have been protective of the creative process. In a recent interview with Indiewire, the cinematographer for Joker explained some of the details surrounding the performance of Phoenix. The director revealed that there are some scenes that were planned and some that weren’t. It’s a fun read, and Phoenix nailed it in his performance.
Todd Phillips, the director and writer behind the critically acclaimed first film, has confirmed he is directing and writing a sequel. Despite this confirmation, the director has not revealed any plot details or provided any public updates on the sequel. Joaquin Phoenix was photographed reading the script, and the cover revealed that he’ll play Arthur Fleck, the anti-hero in the upcoming movie.
Joker 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Batman movie, is currently in pre-production. Its director Todd Phillips has not publicly ruled out the possibility of making another Joker movie. The sequel is set to be released in 2023, but a date for shooting has not yet been set. The production timeframe for Joker 2 is still unclear, but a shoot date of 2023 has been tentatively set.
According to a report by Heroic Hollywood, production on Joker 2 could begin in 2023. While it’s not confirmed yet, the movie is expected to hit theatres by 2024. If the report proves to be true, the film could be released in 2025, 2026, or even 2027. But there’s no firm timetable yet, so the timelines for the film’s release may change.
Zach Galifianakis involved
Zach Galifianakis has reportedly signed on to play the villain in the next Lego Batman movie. The animated movie was a hit when it first came out in February and raked in $305.2 million at the box office. Zach Galifianakis also recorded the voice of The Joker for the sequel. Unlike previous Joker movies, this one will be animated. Despite its fun, silly, and family-friendly tone, it may not be suitable for younger audiences, but fans will definitely enjoy it regardless.
Among Galifianakis’ current projects, he is working on an ensemble comedy titled Masterminds, which was supposed to hit the theatres this fall. The production company has recently announced that it is going through a bankruptcy filing, but Galifianakis is still involved with the project. Additionally, he just wrapped filming on Fox 2000’s Keeping Up With the Joneses. In addition to Joker 2, Galifianakis is also exec producing the TV show Baskets, which he executive produces with Louis CK.
