The reason behind this is that the Infinity War was much more expensive than Joker, at both marketing costs and production budgets. While Endgame grossed a total of over two billion, the $500 million total spend cut far more into the movie’s profit than that of Joker. In the case of the DC movie, it only cost about $300 million on making and marketing the movie.

Currently, Joker is the 8th biggest movie this year, successfully broken the record to become the most successful R-rated movie of all time. Overall, it is the 6th most successful movie from DC Comics. It is very likely that the movie would overtake Wonder Woman this weekend to claim the 5th place behind Aquaman, The two Dark Knight movies, and Dawn of Justice.
