Looks like the Joker won't be a stand-alone film after all! It was just announced earlier today that the sequel for the Joker is now officially in development with Joaquin Phoenix and director Todd Phillips.
Joker has been a huge success in theaters, with a budget of $62.5 million and making over $1 billion worldwide. It's no wonder Warner Bros. is eye-balling the potential of more villain-focused films, especially after the underwhelming sales of their previous superhero films like Batman V. Superman, Aquaman, and The Justice League.
It's likely that this Joker franchise will remain unrelated to the DC Cinematic Universe, and there's no news about what this film is going to be about. But get ready, cause after this, we definitely won't be seeing a drop in Jokers for Halloween any time soon.
