There's been constant speculation surrounding potential Joker follow-ups ever since the movie hit theaters, and we've now heard that Warner Bros. already have plans for multiple sequels and even have a back-up plan just in case their leading man doesn't want to reprise his Oscar-winning role. According to sources turning Joker into a franchise is a top priority for WB at the moment. Apparently, they're planning multiple sequels and while it's unclear how many more films Phoenix will return for, if he decides to bow out at some point, they'll just lean into the theories that say Arthur isn't the true Clown Prince of Crime and switch the focus to another character, someone Arthur inspired. After all, we've already heard that he wasn't the real Joker and that the true Clown Prince of Crime is still out there and will be introduced in the sequel. See more »
When Arthur goes to the public theatre to confront Thomas, there is a shot of the stage with two speakers visible on either side of the stage. These speakers are modern rigged speaker arrays, which were not yet used in the 1970s. See more »

Let me start off by saying if Joaquin Phoneix doesn't get his Oscar for this movie. Then the Oscars should be cancelled. Phoneix is amazing as you might've heard from every review ever! But Todd Phillips. Is at his best here. The story lines he takes and visuals are just breathtaking. The score!! Omg the Score! Every time that score came on, I felt very uncomfortable, like something horrible was about to happen. It was GREAT. The Inspirations from Taxi Driver and King of Comedy are there, and add so much for the movie. And I got to be honest. There are scenes that are very violent. And its disturbing. But I honestly expected it to be WAYYYY more violent from all the controversy going on. Overall this movie was GREAT. Come Oscar season, it needs to be nominated for Best Picture, ScreenPlay, Cinematography, Actor, Score and Director
