With that in mind, Warner Bros would likely bite the hand off director Todd Phillips for a sequel.

And it sounds like Joaquin Phoenix, who plays the unravelling stand-up comedian Arthur Fleck, who will become Batman's nemesis, could be persuaded to do it all again.

Speaking to veteran Rolling Stone critic Peter Travers on his Popcorn podcast, he said: “You know, I wouldn’t have thought about this as my dream role. But now, honestly, I can’t stop thinking about it.

Todd Phillips Says Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Won’t Meet Robert Pattinson’s Batman “Joker” director Todd Phillips isn’t optimistic when it comes to a future meeting between Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and Robert Pattinson’s recently announced Batman “No, definitely not,” he told Variety when asked if the pair would appear in a future film together. 

To my delight, lead actor Joaquin Phoenix is seemingly open to the possibility of doing a followup of some sort “I talked to Todd a lot about what else we might be able to do, in general, just to work together, but also specifically, if there’s something else we can do with Joker that might be interesting .

“So, it ended up being a dream role. It’s nothing that I really wanted to do prior to working on this movie.”

He went on: “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.”

That all sounds like good news for fans, of course, but it doesn't necessarily chime with what Phillips is thinking.

Phillips has also quashed any talk of a possible crossover with Matt Reeves' forthcoming The Batman, in which Robert Pattinson will play a young Bruce Wayne.

Speaking last month, Phillips told Variety: “No. Definitely not. Oddly, in the states, comic books are our Shakespeare it seems, and you can do many many versions of Hamlet. There will be many more jokers, I’m sure, in the future.”

While some have hailed the movie – it won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival – others have found it rather more problematic.

The New Yorker's Anthony Lane wrote: “I happen to dislike the film as heartily as anything I’ve seen in the past decade, but I realise, equally, that to vent any inordinate wrath toward it is to fall straight into its trap, for outrage merely proves that our attention has been snagged.”

Vanity Fair's Richard Lawson also called it 'deeply troubling', describing it as 'irresponsible propaganda for the very men it pathologises'.

Its portrayal of an angry loner who becomes violent, in the wake of the epidemic of mass shootings in the US, resulted in the families of the victims of the cinema shooting in Aurora, Colorado, in 2012 to pen a letter to Warner Bros calling for it to consider its 'social responsibilities'.
