It’s the second anniversary of the overseas release of Justice League, and Warner Bros is celebrating! Not because of Justice League, but because Joker has topped $1 billion gross.
Arthur Fleck might have danced down the stairs, but his movie’s profits have only been rising!
With a small budget of $62.5 million, this DC property has made comic book movie history as the first R-rated movie to hit this milestone. This small production budget and such a large international box office, this means that Joker is now the most profitable comic book movie in history.

It’s worth mentioning (Get it?) that despite the film’s massive overhaul, Todd Philips seems unmoved with the prospect of making a sequel. Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Todd Phillips if he were to make a sequel:
…it couldn’t just be this wild and crazy movie about the ‘Clown Prince of Crime,’It would have to have some thematic resonance in a similar way that this does. Because I think that’s ultimately why the movie connected, it’s what’s going on underneath.
Warner Bros might have different ideas on the matter, though.
