According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Joker sequel is in the works. 

Yep, you read right — Todd Phillips is looking to re-team with the film’s star Joaquin Phoenix on a follow-up to the $1 billion-grossing original movie. 

Sources tell the outlet that Pictures Group chairman Toby Emmerich proposed to develop a portfolio of DC characters’ origin stories.

Joker is the fourth DC title to cross $1 billion mark. It joins 2018’s Aquaman with $1.15 billion, 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises with $1.08 billion and 2008’s The Dark Knight $1 billion. 

Warner Bros. has yet to comment on the report.
