Talking on Popcorn with Peter Travers, Joaquin was questioned if a sequel is in the making and whether he would be ready to play the character for a second time. It turns out, Joaquin is very much open to the possibility of playing Joker.
Joaquin shared, "I talked to (director) Todd (Phillips) a lot about what else we might be able to do, in general, just working together, but also specifically, if there's something else with Joker that might be interesting." He added, "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."
When inquired if he considers this to be his dream role, the actor stated, "I wouldn't have thought of this as my dream role, but now, honestly, I can't stop thinking about it."
