But surely if you know your film features the most iconic villain in the biggest genre in cinema right now and it's going to be made for a tiny budget of 50m you'd think they would take the risk and finance the whole movie? I don't know how financing works but maybe they have to co-finance all their films to maintain a healthy relationship with other companies? If they just pick and choose every film maybe it would rub the other suppliers the wrong way knowing how much profit they are missing out on.

I imagine it depends on each movie. Joker on paper was not a surefire bet and so even at $55-62m, it's better to spread the risk even if it means less profit. Even Universal uses co-financier for smaller budget films like Downton Abbey and Last Christmas.

It did look like that at least for one of those co-financier when I looked at it was part of a large multiple movies slate investment, letting them in on the best prospect make selling harder projects much easier for sure.

Bron I believe came onboard later on as part of Warner Bros' deal with them much like how Legendary got to finance Jurassic World as part of their deal with Universal. Village Roadshow was onboard very early on but they're also a long standing WB partner.

read: they are pretending that there will be no sequels until the oscars are done.

That's the problem when your $1 billion+ movie is winning major awards. :whosad:

 

Hard to blame them for not knowing how to handle popular and awards success at the same time, that is a situation almost unheard of since LOTR.

On the Deadline denying Joker 2 thing: Mike Fleming is a cretinous weasel who "debunks" whenever someone beats him to a story, which is hysterical considering how many times he just lifts stories from other sites and runs them as exclusives, so take his word with a grain of salt.

Well, Variety has chimed in and said that there are no other DC villain films planned and that while there may have been some early talks of a possible sequel, there’s apparently nothing set in stone yet.

I suspect Variety is right;a Joker sequel is being talked about....when a film makes over a billion that is automatic, but little is known yet.

As for the rumored "Other DC VIllian " movie, if it's Lex Luthor ,given  the social comment in the Joker, Lex if going to have a hell of a lot in common with the guy currently in the White House...

Not really. Black Panther - a more acclaimed movie than the taxi driver rip-off Joker - was was nominated for all major awards and they still kept mentioning the sequel (even during their SAG acceptance speech). 

 

Also LOL at comparing Joker a measly 1 billion grosser to the global event that was LOTR

In some countries in Europe? Sure.. Other than that - hell no. It's not even close to the level of LOTR. It's an insulting comparison.

It’s apparently a big event in places like Lebanon and Hong Kong, too. It’s certainly a film that’s left an impression on a lot of people.

Irony is 21 Bridges is going to be sliced up at the box office by "Knives Out" which has Chris Evans in his first major post Cap role.

Do people actually know what Kennedy's position is, and that Filoni or Favreau being put in her role would mean they would work on their Star Wars shows less and not more?

Nah, Headshot just likes to whine. That's how he gets attention.

Is it unheard of? Avatar, Black Panther and BR were in the same boat. If they have to choose between popularity and a golden statue, popularity should win every time.
