Joaquin Phoenix starrer Joker is still going strong at the box office and is smashing several records and has till now grossed around USD 953 million. And now, Forbes has announced that Joker, which is about Batman's biggest nemesis, is the most profitable comic book-based movie till now. While other comic-based movies do have grossed more than the movie, however, the movie's budget which was USD 62.5 million, was taken into consideration. Yes, you read it right! The movie has earned 15.3 times its budget. With these numbers, the movie has topped Jim Carrey's 1994 comedy-drama The Mask which was grossed USD 351 million and it was made on USD23 million budget.

The Forbes' report reads, "In a skewed way, Joker represents every studio’s dream, in that it’s a mid-budget, 2-D title that’s pulling top-tier blockbuster business without relying on China. That it happens to be an R-rated psychological drama is a bonus of sorts."  Also, the movie is the third-cheapest USD 900 million grosser of all time after Bohemian Rhapsody and The Lion King.
