JOKER Is Now The Most Profitable Comic Book Movie Ever As It Nears $1 Billion At The Worldwide Box Office

There's more good news for Joker today as it's been revealed that the DC Comics adaptation is now the most profitable superhero movie in history thanks to its low production budget. Check it out...

With a budget that's considerably smaller than the vast majority of comic book movies, it's now been revealed that Joker is the most profitable superhero film of all-time. 

As of right now, the R-Rated release has earned over $956 million at the worlwide box office just five weeks after it first arrived in theaters. $304.2 million of that comes from North America where Joker has broken a huge number of records and with a production budget of around $62.5 million and a small marketing budget, the movie has earned 15.3x what it cost to make. 

Believe it or not, the previous record holder was 1994's The Mask starring Jim Carrery. That earned $353 million on a budget of $23 million despite being heavy on special effects at the time. 

It's widely believed that Joker will ultimately reach $1 billion by the time all is said and done and that's a phenomenal result for Warner Bros., especially without a release in China. Now, you have to believe the studio will move forward with more "Black Label" R-Rated DC Comics adaptations. 

Did you guys ever expect Joker to reach these heights?
