Don’t Dress For ‘Joker’ Sequel Yet; Insiders Say Todd Phillips Never Pitched Origin Film Series On Other DC Characters – Deadline, Google News

TheJokersequel news that hit a trade today is great click bait, but multiple inside sources said that while a sequel tothe billion-dollar-grossing filmis an obvious likely eventuality that makes all the financial sense in the world, at this point there are no deals for a sequel, nor even any negotiations with directorTodd Phillipsor his co-writerScott Silverto craft one.

Those sources add that the linchpin of today’s THR story – that a week afterJoker‘s opening, Phillips met with Warner Bros film chiefToby Emmerichto pitch a portfolio of DC character origin stories – is as flat false as earlier stories that Martin Scorsese contemplated directing the firstJoker(Scorsese was originally going to be a producer but dropped out because of his crowded schedule). Multiple sources said no such October 7 meeting between Phillips and Emmerich occurred, and that Phillips hasn’t even considered overseeing other DC character films. That would be in keeping with Phillips’s track record of being selective: AfterThe Hangoverbegan breaking records for R-rated films, he did not seek to turn his company into a comedy factory .

No one is saying aJokersequel won’t happen someday. But multiple sources said nothing has happened yet and that Phillips and co-writer Scott Silver have made no real moves to draft the further dark rise ofJoaquin Phoenix‘s Arthur Fleck character, or even to make a deal to do that.
