Seeing how picky he is about his movie roles. Has he ever done a sequel? Maybe this will be an exception since Joker has become such a big hit.

Thought he stopped talking to him after the sexual assault allegations and his sisters divorce from affleck October 14, 2019 Reply DevlFIG I loved Joker so much. I'm going to watch it again this weekend! October 14, 2019 Reply Comic Book Guy All of my friends, hated this movie.Now I don't have any friends.

(Somewhat including grace) who thought that Shazam "Bombed" At the box office. What you're seeing with Gemini Man is the definition of bombing at the box office. October 14, 2019 Reply Jonathan Moua Is The Farewell an Asian foreign language film?? I felt it was more Asian American and definitely had Mandarin in it.. but didn't necessarily feel like it was a completely foreign film. October 14, 2019 Reply Pomai Kajiyama If they really want the ratings they might just nominate Endgame and Joker so that the trades can make a Marvel vs. DC frenzy up for them. October 14, 2019 Reply harrypotteravenclaw 5:20 Black Panther was nominated for Best Picture! October 14, 2019 Reply Pedro Vera Grace, Zoe Kravitz will play Catwoman???? October 14, 2019 Reply Artemus Over Easy No offense to Heath Ledger cuz he too did an amazing job, but it shouldn’t matter in the least what Dark Knight won or was nominated for. This movie is great and Phoenix nailed this role. For the dipshits of Hollywood not to see that is a joke.And Grace- nobody worth a shit puts stock into R/T scores. October 14, 2019 Reply Billo! 87! If Phoenix does not get an Oscar nod, I’ll never watch the Oscars again. October 14, 2019 Reply Along For The Ride Saw it today, it got a standing ovation at the end. What an incredible film. October 14, 2019 Reply Peter Jackson The Addams family should be called the Lilith family.If award voters don't vote for the joker, they're a bunch of clowns accomplishing nothing. October 14, 2019 Reply Eduardo Braga If it gets nominated for screenplay, it will be adapted, because it takes in to account the characters and the world, which already exist in other medias. October 14, 2019 Reply clansome Nah Joker won't hit a Billion by a long, long way. Also no Oscar noms either. Also Wonder Woman was piss poor so definitely didn't deserve any. October 14, 2019 Reply Rin Wesley I don't know what it is, but I love this woman's delivery. October 14, 2019 Reply Venraef Grace, you're making the same mistake Zack Snyder made. Nobody likes grimdark outside of the Batman universe. October 14, 2019 Reply Ethan Andrew I officially stopped trusting Rotten Tomatoes as a viable source after they reviewed this movie at a 68%. Absolutely ridiculous. October 15, 2019 Reply Sparky 69 I’m happy this movie is doing well. Most DC movies struggle at the box office October 15, 2019 Reply Onlywan Rayner End game was good but doesnt deserve any oscars – joker on the other hand deserves ALL the oscars October 15, 2019 Reply Onlywan Rayner Rotten tomatoes is a corrupt and biased piece of dog turd October 15, 2019 Reply Jermaine Sneed Will Joker come out in China though? If so definitely a Billion. But rather it dues or not. With that budget it’s a grand slam. October 15, 2019 Reply ADOS SACTO I'm glad the multi-billion dollar conglomerate is finally getting notice =) October 15, 2019 Reply Jermaine Sneed Aquaman had a different tone. And it’s the biggest DCEU film. Tone isn’t the only reason on why DC films are big or not. I actually like to love all the DCEU. But rather I do or not, that have been split amongst audiences and critics. October 15, 2019 Reply Carolyn Nigro Joaquin was mesmerizing. October 15, 2019 Reply Zackary Biagi Am i the only one that thinks Joaquin deserves an oscar more than rdj? I mean he was awesome in endgame, but Phoenix takes the spot.

This is their strength. Stop competing with MCU. DC WB has finally found its step. WW, Aquaman, Joker all more stand alone films. Stop connecting them. October 15, 2019 Reply TheRManProds Well No One's Laughing Now! October 15, 2019 Reply TheRManProds If Joker isn't Nominated for Anything, then the Oscars are a Joke! October 15, 2019 Reply Ramon Serna You shouldn't even put the commercial trash endgame was with Joker on the same sentence.

And for vfx and score its clear its a win for Marvel even costume. But joker is a Gem we get every 10years October 15, 2019 Reply Lords Art Rotten tomatoes is literally rotten with sold out staff. Fk them.

October 15, 2019 Reply Armando Delao Navy la manda a saludar October 15, 2019 Reply Stephen Petersen They should just make Joker movies over and over again. October 15, 2019 Reply Jerome King Joker better get a Oscar October 15, 2019 Reply HELLASgate7 I'm tired of some idiots dissing this masterpiece because of the taxi driver similarities. I myself haven't even seen Taxi Driver so I don't care. Joker is its own movie. Some things happened differently from what I've heard. It's like saying that "The Dark Knight" isn't good because it's too much like the "Departed" or The "Winter Soldier" is terrible because it draws to much from "All The Presidents Men" Just stop it. Leave the nitpicking to the "tedious critics" and enjoy cinema. When you drive sports car you enjoy it. You don't start the engine and perform a safety crash test. Leave that to the dummies 😉 October 15, 2019 Reply Tiago Fernandes Wonder Woman nominated for the Oscars ?????? ARE YOU INSANE????? Do they have Oscar for worst movie or worst actress now ? October 15, 2019 Reply Ted Bundy joker was so overrated can't believe the hype yes it was good but grossly underrated October 15, 2019 Reply Andrew Williams It was so nice I saw it twice. October 15, 2019 Reply The Thief in The Night If I'm honest about it, the screenplay was OK, not something to write home about, but Joaquin Phoenix's performance is Oscar worthy. He carries the entire movie. I want to see it again, but this time look for things I might have missed the first time around. I agree with others: You can't compare Phoenix and Heath Ledger because it's like comparing apples to oranges, but I'll be really angry if the academy doesn't at least nominate Phoenix for an Oscar. It may be the only time in history where 2 actors win an Oscar for portraying the same character. And the performances are COMPLETELY different! October 15, 2019 Reply David Saucedo joker was below average October 15, 2019 Reply Wdeemar Wdeemar If you go to RT to assess a movie you are a fool and need to get in my ponzy/pyramid scale right now. October 15, 2019 Reply wawuglio The irony is that Joker had more in common with Batman 89 than TDK. 1. The dark humor. 89 Joker says "Bob, gun" then out of the blue blows Bob's brains out. Joker 19 asks Murray a question then out of the blue blows Murray's brains out. 2. Joker 89 shoots his authority figure (Grissom) after a conversation then casually remrks 'What a day' Joker 19's what a day moment comes after he has a conversation with his authority figure (the shrink) then he casually jaunts down the hall, 3. Joker 89 confronts an innocent (Vicki Vale) then tries to deform her face with his acid flower. Joker 19 confronts an innocent (young Bruce) and deforms his face with his fingers. All Ledger did was blow things up. He literally negated what could have been a what a day moment by wearing a dress. October 15, 2019 Reply Greg Goodman We have to remember that Joker is NOT part of the DCEU and was never intended to be. It was also always meant as a one-off film, not a franchise starter. I doubt we'll see a sequel or see the DCEU shift to match the tone and look of this film. At best, this performance will encourage WB to continue making non-DCEU "experimental" films. October 15, 2019 Reply Oscar Martinez Reyes Te manda saludos Andrés Navy October 16, 2019 Reply Aristocles I'm just worried that some lying, hyper-partisan woman will "remember" being molested by Joaquin Phoenix 20 years ago in an attempt to discredit him for choice of best actor. October 16, 2019 Reply Alz Dee You have to watch this movie multiple times and its well WORTH IT! October 16, 2019 Reply Aaron Mauer Aquaman shows that WB is not locked into one type of movie October 16, 2019 Reply Mario bros game over 2019 Hi Beyond The Trailer I have a friend named Andrés Navy who is youtuber and I want to tell you that he sends greetings!!!!!

October 16, 2019 Reply Recanto do Guerreiro It's such a good movie I want to see it again October 16, 2019 Reply Vishnu Nair Unpopular opinion: While I would love to see a sequel to Joker, possibly with the Bat in it, I don't think DC needs to make it. They've got such a huge roster of amazing characters they could dip into, and any one of them, if done with the same amount of care Joker was, can keep this DC Renaissance Grace talks about going October 16, 2019 Reply Jurgen Mathiae Hope Phoenix doesn’t need to die to get an Oscar 😬this joker is without question a masterpiece and we should take care it Doesn’t get reality 💪🏻 October 16, 2019 Reply iluvugoldenblue score and costume too!
