Todd Phillips Wants a Batman Film Set in the Gotham He Created

Joaquin Phoenix in "Joker."

Joker director Todd Phillips would like to see a Batman movie stem from his Gotham City. 

“It’s a beautiful Gotham. What I would like to see someone tackle is what Batman looks like from that Gotham,” Phillips told Variety

This project is not to be confused with the previously reported sequel (that could or could not be happening), and in any case, Phillips added that it definitely won’t be the one to make that movie.

“I’m not saying I’m going to do that. What was interesting to me about the inclusion of Batman in our movie was, ‘What kind of Batman does that Gotham make?’ That’s all I meant by that,” he said.

Last year’s Joker was the fourth of Warner Bros.’ DC Comics films to hit the $1 billion mark.
