Joker director Todd Phillips shoots down The Hollywood Reporter‘s article that he is making more villain origin stories, but he does confirm he has talked about a sequel.
In the ongoing saga that is what is happening with the Joker sequel and the future of the DC on the big screen, Todd Phillips has released a statement denying a previous report that he met at WB in October to tackle a new slate of similar films.
THR reported this Wednesday and said Phillips had an October 7 meeting with Toby Emmerich, head of production, and asked for the rights to make more villain origin stories. But it turns out THR may have jumped the gun or have been downright wrong.
