This weekend, director Todd Phillips’ JOKER — which stars Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck/The Joker (of course, if “The Joker” stuff was real) — will cross the billion-dollar mark at the box office worldwide. It will now join THE DARK KNIGHT and THE DARK KNIGHT RISES as the 3rd movie in the Batman film franchise to do accomplish that feat.
Furthermore, Warner Bros. now has 4 DC Comics-based movies that are part of the billion-dollar club and other than AQUAMAN, they are all “Batman movies.”
The Batman brand is strong.
