The domestic gross of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been surpassed by Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker.
Joker has officially passed Batman v Superman‘s run at the domestic box office, which was an impressive $330,360,194. Joker has now earned $330,601,522, adding to its total global haul of $1,048,301,522. Given that Joker only cost $55 million for Warner Bros. to make, it’s not a shock that the studio is in a much more celebratory mood for this win than it was for Batman v Superman (which cost upwards of $255M).
