2. Joker 2 (unofficial)
It is rumoured that Arthur Fleck / Joker would be back for another haunting round for a sequel. Probably one of the best in the list of Joaquin Phoenix Upcoming Movies 2020. The Joker, directed by Todd Phillips, became the first R- rated highest-grossing movie to have revenue of 1 billion dollars and win several awards.
A sequel of this fantastic movie was bound to happen, though it wasn’t confirmed. Moreover, Todd Phillips will be directing the film and shall also write the script with Scott Silver.
However, the release of the sequel hasn’t been announced yet, but it was being expected to arrive around October 2021.
It would be great to get a glimpse of The Gotham City once again, where the first movie took place. The place where mentally troubled Arthur was mistreated and degraded by society and drove him to embark the never-ending route of bloodiness and crimes. It could be that if the sequel is confirmed, the movie might portray Arthur as a villain.
However, we did see a sneak peek of the future character that Joker might play. In the post-credit scene, we could clearly see the bloody footprints in the Mental Hospital where Arthur was put in. It could be that he was on a killing spree.
In the movie Joker, we see an angle of Bruce and Arthur being stepbrothers. Well, if that turns to be true in the upcoming sequel, then it would be quite fun to watch. Moreover, there is also a chance of Batman playing a cameo in the next movie.
Joker 2 has not been confirmed yet. However, it sure will be great to see another haunting dance of Arthur. it was a very easy pick for our list of Joaquin Phoenix Upcoming Movies 2020.
