DC Comics' Joker movie laughed its way over the $1 billion-grossing mark at the box office, but does that mean we are going to be getting a follow-up movie?

Joker 2 not happening (yet), DC Comics has too much of a 'busy slate' |

According to a new report by Variety, Warner Bros. film chief Toby Emmerich has met with the writer and director of Joker to see what ideas are currently being cooked up for a sequel. Variety says that insiders close to the talks have said that these discussions regarding a sequel are very young and that nothing is solidified as of yet. Meaning that there is no script, no roles confirmed, no storyline etc.

Other insiders said that Warner Bros and DC aren't talking about Todd Phillips doing another origin story of a DC comic-book character. Variety says that "Any "Joker" follow-up will take years to pull off, and DC has a busy slate". This "busy slate" includes the release of Wonder Women 1984, the new Batman movie with Robert Pattinson playing the Cape Crusader, and Margot Robbie's upcoming "Birds of Prey".


Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
