I don’t think it needs one but I woud love a sequel. I’d also like to see dark origin movies of Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and Two Face.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm nah we’re good. It’s good.
Joker only works on the levels that it does work on because of its standalone nature…I just don’t think that a sequel could recapture any of the things that made this movie any good
Well it’s confirmed now that a sequel is on the way. And I gotta be honest, I’m a little disappointed. A lot of the fun with this movie was deciding for yourself what events were real and what happened in Arthur’s mind. A sequel will spoil that fun by confirming certain events DID happen.
Plus, I think Arthur’s future as the Joker will be awkward to view on screen. I don’t see Arthur as a gangster, a manipulator, or an evil mastermind. And I don’t see him as the kind of guy who barks orders at henchmen. But who knows. Maybe Arthur CAN evolve into that kind of character? I just think it’ll be a tough sell.
I think the film will be more impactful without a sequel. “Leave people wanting for more” type of thing.
The only acceptable sequel will be a Batman Year One adaptation. Dark ans gritty but without the Joker in it
The film really felt like a stand alone. It did it’s job, showcasing another possible origin, and added greatly to the character’s already richly varied history. I suppose it will all boil down to how it’s executed.
I think another Joker stand alone would be great, however, I think that the Phoenix movie was set up to go alone, and I think a sequel would lose the impact the movie had
