First of all, it should be said that the Joker movie with Joaquin Phoenix stands completely on
its own, of course. This means that there is no overlap with other DCEU films. However, this
does not exclude the possibility that a Batman could also exist in the world of Joker - we
have already seen little Bruce Wayne in the Joker movie.
Director Todd Phillips now announced in an interview with Variety that he could definitely
imagine a Batman in "his" Gotham City, after all his version of the city is beautiful. But he
immediately stated that he would not be the suitable director for this. Understandable, since
he's not sure if he wants to make a Joker 2 at all - not to mention a Batman movie. Hasty
news portals already announced during the cinema release of Joker that a second part has
been decided. Nevertheless, Todd Phillips quickly contradicted those rumors, because
according to his own statement, the current state of affairs is that all sides are open for talks,
but nothing more.
