False information: Joker 2 (announced)

The film was never officially announced by Warner Bros, Todd Philips said himself “Here’s the real truth about a sequel. While Joaquin and I have talked about it, and while touring the world with Warner Bros executives — going to Toronto, and Venice, and other places — of course, we’re sitting at dinner and they’re saying, ‘So, have you thought about...?’ But, talking about contracts, there’s not a contract for us to even write a sequel, we’ve never approached Joaquin to be in a sequel. Will that happen? Again, I just think the article was anticipatory at best.”

I think that this page: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11315808/?ref_=nm_flmg_prd_2, should be deleted or that the mention "announced" replaced by the mention "rumored".

If Warner Bros has made an announcement about a sequel let me know.

Excuse me?
We just went through this thing about altering the database.
Please wait for a week or two. The parties involved may indeed be using the media in a scare tactic meant to strengthen their negotiation positions.
We should not jump to change the status for at least a week or so.
Patience. Otherwise you could be making submissions on the hour to update the latest news.
Best that this is left alone for a few days.

Like usually, I disagree with you, Ed Jones. This is only rumored and I think that the goal of IMDb is to provide an accurate date. However, this is totally inaccurate. It is based on fake news. IMDb even posted this news on the website:Joker 2 Talks Have Happened, No Contract Signed Yet. I think that if we change it to "rumored", it won't be like altering the database information since we are posting the correct information. Plus, it is really confusing for people who are new to the database, such a film should have extremely accurate info, we can't wait 2 weeks!!, Joker is the most popular movie presently!!

I agree with both of you. We don't want people spreading false information.

It was a go project on the 20th. Now supposedly a no go project on the 22nd.
Wait a day or two.
Cinephile please, I know you live and breath Joker. But OMG! Really!

Joker 2: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11315808/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

Joker 2 is still not deleted from IMDb, but no official announcement has been made yet.

Thank You, for letting this lie live.

Note to Ed Jones:

I waited 2 months and no announcement has been made, I think that we can delete this title now, and wait until a real announcement is made to add it to IMDb.
