JOKER Star Joaquin Phoenix On Rumored Sequel: "There Are Some Things We Could Do With This Guy"

Rumors have been doing the rounds for quite a while that Warner Bros. and Todd Phillips are planning to move forward with a direct sequel to 2019's Joker, and star Joaquin Phoenix has now shared an update.

Despite persistent rumors and even apparent confirmation from the trades earlier this year, we still don't know if there are solid plans in place for a sequel to Todd Phillips' controversial smash-hit, Joker.

Star Joaquin Phoenix has now shared an update, and while we're no closer to finding out if Joker 2 is definitely going to happen, it sounds like the Academy Award-winner would be interested in further exploring his unique interpretation of the iconic DC Comics villain.

While speaking to The Playlist about his latest film, Mike Mills' C'mon C'mon, Phoenix was asked outright if there was any movement on the project, and while he was mostly noncommittal, his response may suggest that he was choosing his words carefully!

“I mean, I dunno. From when we were shooting, we started to - you know, uhh, this is an interesting guy. There are some things we could do with this guy and could [explore] further. But as to whether we actually will? I don’t know.”

Joker made over $1 billion for Warner Bros., and with both Phoenix and Phillips seemingly interested in continuing Arthur Fleck's tragically compelling story, an eventual sequel almost seems inevitable. Who knows, perhaps we'll finally hear something official during DC FanDome later this month?
