Warning: if you haven’t seen Joker yet, turn back!
For those lucky enough to have seen the DC crime drama already, you’ll know that director Todd Phillips decided to cut to black in ambiguous fashion – was the whole thing a product of Arthur’s disturbed imagination? Is Thomas Wayne really his biological father?
With questions aplenty, whispers of a sequel are bound to float around.

Appearing on Popcorn with Peter Travers earlier this month, Phoenix was asked if Arthur could be considered a dream role for him.
“I wouldn’t have thought of this as my dream role, but now, honestly, I can’t stop thinking about it,” he stated.
“I talk to Todd a lot about what else we might be able to do. In general, just working together, but also specifically: ‘Is there something else with Joker that might be interesting?'”
The actor then pondered “I don’t know that there is,” before adding how the possibilities for where this character could go seem “endless”.
Joker is in cinemas now.
