We take this bit of news on a Sunday as a “we believe it when we its confirmed“, but there are a few reports out there that Warner Bros are planning a sequel to Joaquin Phoenix’s Oscar Winning origin tale JOKER.

Some reliable news outlets like The Hollywood Reporter have ran reports, suggesting that the studio is planning a return to the world created by Phoenix in the iconic role and while Warner Bros as of yet, have not commented on those rumours, there is a growing belief that a JOKER 2 is set to become a possibility.

Making a sequel is a no brainer as the original film was a box office smash, taking $1.07billion worldwide and it seems both Phoenix and the director Todd Phillips are keen on returning.

Next up for Warner Bros in the DC World is James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, with a new Superman film being planned and of course a Wonder Woman III.
