9 Reasons There Is NO Reason They Should Be Making A 'Joker 2'

9 Reasons There Is NO Reason They Should Be Making A 'Joker 2'

A second "Joker" is quite literally going to be a joke.

Warner Bros.

It was recently announced that there is going to be a "Joker 2," and fans are NOT happy about this.

Sequels are created all the time for successful films, however, "Joker" was intrinsic in and of itself. Creating a second film is completely unnecessary and, quite frankly, a waste.

A tragic mental illness story like that never gets a sequel in real life.

The ending to "Joker" was abstract for a reason.

There was no way they made "Joker" with a sequel in mind.

This is 100 percent a cash grab due to the fact that "Joker" one crossed the $1 billon mark at the box office — something NO ONE saw coming.

Joaquin Phoenix literally said: “I wouldn’t just do a sequel just because the first movie is successful,” he said. “That’s ridiculous.”

This was a huge win for DC Comics — something they needed — and now they’re just going to find a way to mess it up.

Arthur Fleck was a mentally ill psychopath who turned bad — he was not an evil genius like other interpretations of the Joker. What would he even be plotting in the sequel. It makes no sense.

The "Joker" franchise takes place in different timeline and universe than the upcoming Robert Pattinson "Batman" trilogy that is slated to begin in 2021. That trilogy will likely feature a Joker too, but not Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker. That’s exhausting.

"Joker" was a huge success because everyone didn't see it coming and most of us went into with little expectations. It will be the complete opposite for "Joker 2"

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
