Wherever Batman goes you can guarantee that the Joker won’t be too far behind, and vice versa. Todd Phillips may have crafted a standalone origin story in 2019’s box office behemoth, but Thomas Wayne was still featured in a supporting role along with a young Bruce, and we saw Gotham’s most famous couple gunned down in an alleyway for what felt like the five hundredth time.

After Joaquin Phoenix’s Academy Award winning performance led Joker to over a billion dollars globally, rumors have been swirling about the possibility of sequels. Not every major hit movie needs to launch a franchise, but Warner Bros. are nonetheless said to be keen to make multiple follow-ups whether the notoriously picky leading man agrees to return or not.

Of course, the Dark Knight is also being rebooted with Robert Pattinson heading up Matt Reeves’ The Batman, and that project is definitely getting sequels. There’s already been heavy speculation that his arch-nemesis is going to show up at some point during the proposed trilogy, and insider Daniel Richtman claims that Jim Carrey is being eyed as a potential candidate, something we first revealed several weeks ago.

Pattinson, Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck are all playing different versions of Batman for the same studio, so multiple takes on the Joker aren’t exactly outside the realms of possibility. The DCEU’s multiverse presents unlimited opportunity, so it seems a foregone conclusion that the Clown Prince of Crime will return in at least one upcoming project, which will no doubt infuriate Jared Leto even further after his divisive take on the character was swiftly consigned to the history books after being written out of the franchise in Birds of Prey.
