Back in 2019, when the film came out, THR wrote how Todd had not only ideas for a further Joker film but also a whole portfolio of origin stories for DC characters, which he brought to the Warner Bros offices after Joker’s staggering opening weekend.
This was not confirmed, and neither has the most recent suggestion of a sequel.
After the first wave of speculation came about a Joker sequel from Todd, and in particular to the THR’s comments, he replied: “I have to be honest, it came out of nowhere.
“It referred to a meeting that was never had. I thought it was anticipatory at best.”
Interestingly, many wrote off the idea of a sequel due to the film’s star, Joaquin Phoenix, seeming to shy away from roles where multi-film deals were part of it.
