'Joker' one of highest-grossing films in 2019

Todd Philips believes that the success of the movie shouldn’t be credited to just the Batman mythos, as the things are much bigger than what it seems. Joaquin Phoenix-starring Joker was one of the highest-grossing films of the year 2019 so it was highly likely that people would analyse about the various features that made the movie achieve so much success. 

Some consider that the raw storytelling format of the film stole the show while some think that it was Batman's mythos due to which so many people came to watch the movie about the arch-nemesis of Batman. While some also credited the unique character of Joker that made the audience become his fans and keep them glued to the screens.
