For a long time, it was quiet about the sequel to Joker, now fans can look forward to a new glimmer of hope. Joker 2 Director Todd Phillips is already working on the script.
After Joker was able to celebrate great success with critics and viewers, the news about the continuation of the DC drama rolled over. Sometimes part 2 is coming and it’s already in the works, then the project was canceled. Other voices have claimed that Joker 2 is coming, but without director Todd Phillips and starring Joaquin Phoenix. There is currently new information that should please fans.
Joker 2 Director Todd Phillips as the Screenwriter
The Hollywood Reporter recently reported that Phillips has struck a deal that will see him return as a co-writer for Joker 2. Unlike in the first part, however, he does not also take on the position of director. The information is mentioned in passing in an article about Hollywood lawyers, but it is no less reliable.
Todd Phillips attorney Warren Dern tells the Hollywood Reporter what projects his clients are currently working on. As he might be one of the first to get a glimpse of Phillips’ contracts, he’ll likely be well-informed about his future dealings.
When Will Joker 2 Be in Cinemas?
Joker was released in October 2019, so it will certainly be a while before fans can storm the box office for the second part. The fact that Todd Phillips has agreed to work on the script is a good sign, but unfortunately, it doesn’t mean that production will start anytime soon. There is still no further information on this, which is why the film should probably not be expected until 2022 at the earliest. You can find the possible release dates for Joker 2 below.

Joker 2 Director Todd Phillips Has Concrete Ideas
In a previous conversation with the Los Angeles Times, director Todd Phillips was already toying with ideas for Joker 2. So it can’t just be a crazy and wild film about the “Clown Prince of Crime”. “It would have to have some thematic resonance in a similar way to [the first part]. Because I think it’s ultimately why the film connected; it’s about what happens between the lines. So many movies are about the spark and this one is about gunpowder. If you can do that again in a realistic way, that would be interesting.”
This should set the course for “Joker 2”: The sequel should again be a multi-layered character study and not action fireworks. The audience should certainly be able to make friends with that.
Joker 2 Starring Robert Pattinson’s Batman?
Now the only question that remains is whether the character of Batman will appear in the second part. In 2022, The Batman will hit theaters, starring Robert Pattinson and chronicling the early years of the DC hero. Todd Phillips has previously denied that the Joker has anything to do with the new Batman. On the other hand, depending on how much time elapses between the first and second “Joker”, Batman could still play a role. For example, you could show him as a teenager and thus at least bridge the gap to the adult Robert Pattinson variant.
