Joker 2 Everything You Need To Know About the Movie

The anticipated release date of The Joker 2 has been announced. The official title of the film is Joker: Folie A Deux, and it will continue the story of Joaquin Phoenix’s legendary Batman villain.

Warner Bros. has started to generate DC projects that diverge from the primary franchise, even if the DCEU has grown over time. The 2019 release of Joker, a distinct portrayal of Batman’s enemy and one of the first independent films, was in part motivated by the Elseworlds/DC Black Label idea.

The life of Arthur Fleck, a mentally ill Gotham City resident who eventually travels down a path of evilness and dons the renowned Clown Prince of Crime’s mask, is portrayed in the Joaquin Phoenix film Joker.

The worldwide box office gross for Todd Phillips’ Joker was $1.074 billion, but the film’s success went much beyond that. Joaquin Phoenix, who played the DC villain Joker, ultimately won the Best Actor Oscar after receiving multiple nominations for the role.

Just before it was confirmed that Lady Gaga might play Harley Quinn in the follow-up movie, Joker 2’s official title was immediately confirmed by Phillips. Phillips made the announcement just before the surprise. Additionally, it was mentioned that the sequel might be a musical. Read on to learn more about Joker 2.

The second part of the Joker film franchise, titled Folie à Deux, is scheduled to hit theatres on October 4, 2024, exactly five years after the debut of the first Joker film.

Additionally, it has been stated that production will begin in December. Phillips is once more slated to helm the follow-up to the original Joker movie, which he co-wrote with Scott Silver. Phillips made the title of the Joker sequel official earlier this summer.

Even though Joker: Folie A Deux won’t hit theatres for another two years, its initial release date and awards season will be the same. The second part’s release date is more than appropriate, given that Joker was released on October 4, 2019.

Joker: Folie A Deux is rumored to start principal photography in December, so additional details will certainly become available over the fall.

The Cast

There will be a second appearance by Phoenix, who portrays Arthur Fleck/the Joker. The actor played the hugely acclaimed part in 2019 and was awarded the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of the traumatized DC villain.

No other cast members, excluding Phoenix, have been formally introduced as of yet. Lady Gaga is reportedly in talks to play Harley Quinn in the second Joker movie, which is expected to be a musical.

Director Todd Phillips will have more creative freedom with Gaga’s prospective casting to recreate Harley than to stay loyal to the DC comics original or to Margot Robbie’s interpretation of the character in the Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey movies.

Zazie Beetz, who played Sophie Dumond in the original film, might make a comeback. It is quite doubtful that Robert De Niro and Frances Conroy will reprise their roles as Murray and Penny, given that Arthur killed them in the previous film. In the Joker sequel, Spider-Man: No Way Home, actor Willem Dafoe has expressed interest in playing a fake Clown Prince of Crime.

The Plot

Now we’re getting to the point where things will really start to pick up their pace. There is already a tonne of fan speculations regarding what the term Folie à Deux means in relation to the Joker and who might be joining him in the follow-up, with many people guessing that Harley Quinn might appear.

There are numerous approaches to comprehending it. The phrase “a condition in which two strongly linked mentally ill individuals share the same delusional views” appears in the movie’s title.

It might be said that Batman and Joker share the same type of “delusional beliefs,” given how they both work to improve and inflict damage on Gotham. But it’s improbable that the Dark Knight will make an appearance in Joker 2, given that the first film depicts a very young Bruce Wayne.

The second, more plausible possibility is that Dr. Harleen Quinzel from this adaptation would be introduced. She would undoubtedly fall for Fleck’s Joker and aid in his rise to stardom in Gotham.

Harley’s vibrant and engaging attitude might not fit this depressing world, but they are a team, after all, and this would unquestionably fit with the title.


Unfortunately, there isn’t currently an official trailer for Joker: Folie Deux because the movie is still in development and hasn’t started production.
