Following the introduction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008 with “Iron Man”, Marvel Studios has continued to release superhero content for television and film. The first year of the MCU there were two films sent to fans, then in 2021 the studio released four films and five television series. 2022 has seen the debut of two films, two television shows, and a series of other short films.
The more MCU films that are released, it is said to be able to reduce the privilege of each film released. That’s what writer and producer Damon Lindelof recently said.
He believes that the sheer number of Marvel films makes each one less special. Lindelof had a substantial career in both television and film with “Star Trek”, “Prometheus”, “The Leftovers”, and HBO’s “Watchmen”. His most recent writing credit came with “The Hunt”, a controversial horror-thriller film that features a group of working-class conservatives who are hunted down and killed by the progressive rich.

“It’s always going to be tough because once you get someone’s attention, you want to keep it,” Lindelof told Vulture. “So the idea of letting it go and not knowing if you’re going to get it back again or not is kind of at odds with the way we connect.”
However, after all, it all can not be separated from the business concept. When the response to a film is satisfactory then the instinct is how to develop it.
“From a slightly more cynical point of view, this is a business. And if you make some great Marvel movies, the instinct is, ‘We need to make more Marvel movies, and we need to expand on this,'” he continued. “And I had this inner feeling like, ‘Wow, I wish they made less because that would make every film that comes out a little bit more special.”
Unlike many other high-profile MCU critics, such as acclaimed director Martin Scorsese who likened films to amusement park rides as opposed to real cinema, Lindelof is a fan of the MCU franchise. “But I watched everything. Everything,” he explained.
‘Joker 2’ Budget Reportedly Doubled From First Movie
WowCool – When Warner Bros. reportedly trying to cut costs amid a studio makeover, a new report says that “Joker 2” has doubled the budget of the original film. As the studio continues to come under fire for its radical makeover, Variety has released a new report offering updates on the future of the DC Warner Bros. project.
One in the report is confirmation that “Joker: Folie a Deux” is not only moving forward, but is reportedly getting double the budget of the original film to pay the salaries of star Joaquin Phoenix and co-writer/director Todd Phillips. The estimated budget for Joker 2 is said to be 150 million US dollars, more than double the first “Joker” production budget which was estimated to be in the 55-70 million range.
Following the merger of Warner Bros. Discovery, CEO of new studio David Zaslav has recently drawn attention from fans and creatives in the industry regarding the decision to cut several projects, including “Batgirl” and “Scoob! A Holiday Haunt”. A number of factors are said to have been behind the decision, ranging from Zaslav seeking to pay off the $3 billion debt he inherited from previous CEO Toby Emmerich to “Batgirl” which tested poorly in early screenings.

Unlike “Batgirl” and “Scoob! 2”, “Joker 2” is considered to have more support moving forward thanks to its record at the box office and audience anticipation for a sequel. Phoenix led the cast in the previous film as Arthur Fleck, a struggling clown with dreams of becoming a stand-up comedian. As his mental state continues to deteriorate and his frustration with ’70s Gotham grows, Arthur continues to inspire a vicious countercultural revolution and becomes the iconic villain known as the Joker.
Co-written and directed by Todd Phillips of “The Hangover”, Joker debuted to mixed reviews. With the film grossing over $1 billion and winning two Oscars, all eyes are on Phillips and Phoenix to provide follow-ups.
