Joker Becomes The 4th Highest-Grossing DC Film Ever Internationally
Joker is doing extremely well overseas. As for the question if Joker can become DC’s fourth highest-grossing film worldwide, that will be harder. It could surpass Suicide Squad, but it will then need to surpass Wonder Woman and Batman v Superman, both of which made over $820 million. Even if it doesn’t achieve that milestone, Joker has already broken box office records both domestically and internationally.
It would certainly not be a stretch to say Joker is one of the most discussed films of the decade. Joaquin Phoenix has been acclaimed for his portrayal of the iconic antagonist, showcasing a mentally ill man pushed aside by society. Many fans would like a sequel, but the film was envisioned as a standalone feature. Still, Phoenix said he’s open for returning to the character, so anything’s possible. With the film unexpectedly tearing up the box office overseas, Joker has become a big hit of 2019. It will be very interesting to see how much money it makes before its theatrical run concludes.
