Fans hoping to see more of Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker might be in luck.
In an interview about “Joker” on “Popcorn with Peter Travers”, Phoenix revealed that he and director Todd Phillips have discussed potential sequels to the box office hit.
“I wouldn’t have thought of this as my dream role, but now, honestly, I can’t stop thinking about it,” Phoenix said.
“I talked to Todd a lot about what else we might be able to do, in general,” he continued, “just working together, but also specifically, if there’s something else with Joker that might be interesting.”
Asked if he was personally closed off to doing a sequel, the actor responded, “No. Me and Todd would still be shooting now if we could, right? Because it seemed endless, the possibilities of where we can go with the character.”
He added, though, that he isn’t sure a sequel will actually happen, telling Travers, “I don’t know that there is (more to do).”
