The 2019 Joker movie’s ambiguous ending leaves the audience waiting for end-credits that never came; giving rise to theories on what the final scene means. Maybe that is the rationale behind the unexplained ending. Having something to discuss about after seeing the movie, could fuel the interest of those who have yet to find out why the 2019 Joker is currently striking it big at the tills.
Interesting Theories Explaining the Joker Movie’s Ending
Apparently the final scene suggests that Joker is still alive and to likely avoid spending time at the Arkham insane asylum. The general consensus is that it marks the beginning of encounters with Batman in a future sequel. Fans of a Batman-Joker tandem therefore will make it a point to see this 2019 Joker, just so they will not miss the initial story on how Arthur Fleck the unsuccessful comedian, evolved into becoming one of Gotham’s most despicable villains.
Yet when asked if there are plans of putting the new Batman actor Robert Pattinson and Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker, together in a new film, Director Todd Phillips answered in the negative. Although, he is not totally eliminating the possibility of Phoenix’s Joker to return in a sequel. Director Phillips was quite ambiguous on what he and co-screenplay writer Scott Silver plan to do with the Arthur Fleck-Joker character they created.
He simply stated that comic books are the modern equivalent of Shakespearean literature, to which many versions of Hamlet came about.
That explanation also gave rise to another speculation. If ever Pattinson’s Batman advances to a sequel featuring a Joker nemesis, the character might arise from one of the many rioters that helped spread the Gotham chaos incited by Phoenix’s Joker.
Why else would the movie include a scene that identifies one of the rioters as the person responsible for the deaths of Bruce Wayne’s parents?
