A sequel to Joker is currently in development with lead actor Joaquin Phoenix set to return.
The movie based on the DC Comics character is now the most successful R-rated movie of all-time and the highest-grossing film for DC. Its monumental success can be traced to Phoenix’s dedicated performance and positive word of mouth from early cinema-goers.
Director Todd Phillips will return to direct and also co-write the screenplay with Scott Silver. Production details haven’t been decided yet but plans of a sequel comes as no surprise given the film’s status as the most profitable comic book movie ever made.
Joker landed in theaters in early October and shattered a lot of records as it raced past the $1 billion mark. Critics and fans gave the film a lot of praise, singling out Phoenix’s portrayal of the antagonistic character.
