The actor, however, did not make any promises any further and said that they just had a vague discussion and has not really thought if acting upon it. They are not planning to do it but the idea of the Clown Prince continuing his story as the ruler of the city of Gotham. While the director has denied such rumors of a sequel movie, a sequel mini might happen in the near future. That’s is something we need to keep an eye on. However, we would love to see Phoenix continuing his role as Arthur aka Joker.
