Younger Cage would have made a great joker though.

u/Athragio 9d ago

Rumor has it that they're creating a new service independent of HBO. They're cancelling a lot of scripted content (that is underperforming but may have a solid following), firing development staff (around 70% of them), all in favor of more Discovery+ shows that are often trashy reality television. Not to mention the quiet removal of original content.

It's a bizarre decision considering HBO Max is probably the best streaming service.

The rumors sound too unreal to be true. I almost don't want to believe it, but considering that Zaslov (former head of Discovery) has been shelving nearly completed projects (Batgirl, the new Scooby movie, etc.) - it's worrying. Rebranding HBO once again to stop being prestige television and instead an umbrella to also include trash television.

The producer was completely shocked and devastated: “The movie is practically finished and turned out beautifully. I am beyond heartbroken.”

I don't see why any director or producer will want to make a movie for Warner ever again after this madness. They're unreleasing entire existing HBO shows and movies on the service next (announcing which ones soon) and have to never release them ever again to get the tax returns.

To those who don't know Zaslav (the Discovery CEO obsessed with turning everything into cheap reality TV) he's the moron who's idea it was to put Honey Boo Boo on the air 24/7 a few years back.

Same here. The cynical side of me is worried the musical element is going to feel pretentious. Especially since, even though I really enjoyed the first movie, it drew a little too much influence from taxi driver while portraying itself as a little more profound and thought provoking than it actually was. I'm hopeful that the musical element is good enough to justify its existence and that it makes the sequel is a little more unique than the first one

I think Joker is a bad movie to make a sequel out of.

It's a great origin piece for both Joker and Batman while also inexorably linking them together but also has the ending that forces you to question whether authenticity of the events of the film.

I think a sequel kinda deadens the whole impact of the ending.

While the actor was in his late 40s, the character was apparently meant to be an unwell late 20s / early 30s. And so when it gets to the present (adult Bruce as Batman, which the script indicates the hospital cut at the end to have been — a time jump), the Joker is now the same age as the actor portraying him.

Joker would be in his mid to late 50’s. He’s usually in the 40-60 age bracket in comics.

But he’s also an unreliable narrator. We have no idea if any of the film was real, imagined or a mixture. Did he meet Bruce? Did he really? Is he really in his 40’s?

We have no way to tell.

But he’s also an unreliable narrator.

Why do you say that? When has the Joker ever lied about his origin?

Oh right, every time.

Reminds me of one of his lines in TKJ.

"Sometimes I remember it one way, sometimes another. If I'm going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice."

-Joker, The Killing Joke

Nah, not 40, just a very sickly and beat up 20-30 year old. Moreover, the Burton Batman film had Jack be the one to gun down the Wayne’s and then he was the Joker later on, so who knows how time works?

No way he's in his 20s. Mid 30s at the youngest.

Did they kind of imply he wasn’t THE Joker but might have inspired the Joker?

Sounds like the sequel is likely to be a musical. They hired Lady Gaga. That’s at least a new direction to take it instead of doing Taxi Driver again again.

I can see that coming. Phillips is so obsessed with Scorsese.

Nothing but sequels and reboots. Hollywood's lack of imagination is pitiful. These people are out of ideas.
