Nothing has yet been signed between the actor and Warner Bros, but he says he wants “Go further” in his character.
The temptation is very strong. Two years after the huge success of the movie jokerThe possibility of a sequel to Arthur Fleck’s adventures becomes clearer. Joaquin Phoenix, the translator of this hero who was intrigued once released, does not deny his interest in the sequel. This Californian actor was crowned with an Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance, however he wasn’t motivated by the idea of a sequel to Todd Phillips’ movie. An opinion that appears to be an evolution.
The 46-year-old actor recently told Playlist that he hasn’t finished the story for this”Interesting man. There are some things we can do with this guy and move onIf nothing has been officially released to produce a file sequel As for Todd Phillips’ movie, the director has already signed a contract with Warner Bros. to co-write a sequel to Arthur Fleck’s adventures, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fifty million contract
Since the movie’s release, the actor has maintained an ambivalent relationship to say the least with his character. In a Los Angeles Times photo that was dedicated to him two years ago, Joaquin Phoenix explained that he himself had suggested a sequel, even before the movie was a huge hit:During the second or third week of filming, I said to myself: “Todd, can you start working on a supplement? There are many things to explore.“ It was kind of a joke — but not really.”
A year later, the situation changed again. In September 2020, The Daily Mirror Revealed that Joaquin Phoenix “I felt like The Joker was a unique movie. But he has changed his mind now. He says he wants to play that character again.” According to a source quoted by the newspaper.
If the actor claims today that he has found the motive to return to the world of Gotham City, his wish could help the $50 million that Warner promised in the case of a sequel. “They plan to make a sequel over the next four years, with a long-term commitment to Joaquin, its Joker director Todd Phillips, and producer Bradley Cooper. It’s about getting Joaquin to accept the terms – and by far the biggest paycheck of his career.” Then the actor’s relative explained to the English newspaper.
A true cultural phenomenon upon its release, the film became one of the biggest successes in world cinema, grossing over $1 billion at the box office. In France, more than five million people traveled during his theatrical show.

Under the direction of Ridley Scott, he will take on the features of Napoleon, in this announced blockbuster film. Filming was scheduled for early 2022, before it was released the following year, only on Apple TV.
