As cinephiles keep on dismembering Todd Phillips' Joker film, numerous fans are thinking about what happened to Zazie Beetz's character, Sophie.
Without sharing any spoilers, her destiny was left to some degree vague in the polished product of the motion picture. Be that as it may, presently Phillips, who coordinated and co-composed the film, has given an unequivocal answer about what befell her.
Cautioning: Spoilers ahead.
The last time Beetz's character Sophie is seen on-screen is the point at which she ventures into her lounge room in the wake of putting her little girl to bed, just to find Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) sitting on her love seat. It is then uncovered that the sentimental relationship shared between the two was all in Arthur's mind. Sophie then requests that Arthur not to hurt her or her little girl. Arthur is then observed leaving the room, but since the film never expressly shows what happens to Sophie, it has left a few people thinking about whether Arthur may have murdered her.
Plunking down with IndieWire Phillips says she lives:
“He doesn’t kill her. Definitively. As the filmmaker and the writer, I’m saying he doesn’t kill her. We like the idea that it’s almost like a little bit of a litmus test for an audience to say, ‘OK, well how crazy is he?’ And most people that I’ve spoken to think he didn’t kill her because they understand this idea that he’s only killed people that did him wrong, so to speak. That have fucked him over. She had nothing to do with it. Most people understood that he was living by – even as a villain – a certain code. We thought when he kisses Gary on the head, the little actor, and he runs off, he clearly has a code he lives by. Of course he didn’t kill this woman down the hall and her child.”
