When the first Joker movie debuted, it received a lot of criticism, perhaps due to the protagonist’s supposedly twisted moral compass and brutal violence. Thanks to the excellent cast and Joaquin Phoenix’s outstanding performance, the movie received a lot of praise, went on to become a classic, and is frequently brought up in pop culture allusions and discussions. The Joker sequel is already in the works and will be titled Joker: Folie à Deux, as we recently learned.
When Will the Joker: Folie à Deux Be Released?
It was quiet for a while before reports of a Joker sequel began to surface. Thankfully, the film is actually being made, as confirmed by Joker director Todd Phillips, who, in June, tweeted an Instagram photo of the screenplay cover.
The Joker sequel will be released on October 4, 2024, according to an exclusive scoop from Deadline that was published on August 3, 2022, a few months later. With this release date, Joker: Folie à Deux will hit theatres on October 4, 2024, exactly five years after the first Joker movie did.
Is There a Trailer for Joker: Folie a Deux?
Since Joker: Folie à Deux is still in the early stages of development, there isn’t a trailer for the film yet. If the movie follows the same release schedule as the previous Joker movie, we can anticipate seeing the trailer in August or September 2024, a few months before the film is released. Here is the last trailer for Joker in the interim as we wait for the one for Joker: Folie à Deux.
Joker: Folie à Deux-Cast
One of the most recognizable villains in history, the Joker, rivals the fame of any superhero. Many well-known performers have taken on the job of bringing his craziness to life for the big screen, including Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. After his tragic passing, Ledger even received an Oscar for best-supporting actor.
Joaquin Phoenix, who played the role in the 2019 movie about Arthur Fleck’s transformation from an unsuccessful clown to a nasty and deranged criminal, is the most recent actor to play the Joker. Phoenix’s portrayal earned him his first Best Actor Academy Award. Phoenix will play the title character in Joker: Folie à Deux once more.
We still don’t know anything about the other members of the Joker: Folie à Deux ensemble outside of the actors that play the main characters. Visit this page frequently since it will be updated.
Will Lady Gaga Play Harley Quinn?
Joker: Folie à Deux
— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) August 4, 2022
Lady Gaga announced on social media that she had been cast in “Joker 2” by sharing a musical teaser. Gaga will appear in the follow-up, formally titled “Joker: Folie à Deux,” opposite Joaquin Phoenix, who will reprise the role of the Joker after winning the Oscar for best actor for his work in the 2019 original. The song playing in the teaser is “Cheek to Cheek,” which Gaga famously sang with Tony Bennett in her music career.
In June, various reports claimed that Gaga was considering playing Harley Quinn in the forthcoming “Joker” sequel, which will feature a musical. On June 7, the screenplay’s cover was uploaded to Instagram by the director Todd Phillips, revealing the subtitle “Folie à Deux.” The term alludes to a common hallucination disease, and Harley, a character first developed for “Batman: The Animated Series” in the early 1990s, has been the Joker’s only actual buddy other than Batman. However, the trailer does not explicitly state that Gaga is portraying Harley.
About Joker 2 So Far
The movie, which reportedly stars Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn and has Todd Phillips back in charge of the direction, is expected to be a musical.
It makes sense that where the first Joker saw Joaquin Phoenix play out the delusions of the title character, Joker 2 will see Phoenix and Gaga feed off of each other’s delusions because the French title, Folie à Deux, is a phrase that means a delusion or mental illness shared by two people, most commonly a romantic couple. We think that, just like in the first movie, the line between fantasy and reality will be very blurry.
2019 saw the release of the first Joker, which earned a record-breaking $96.2 million in its first weekend at the box office. The movie earned $1.07 billion worldwide, making it the most successful R-rated movie ever.
The Academy Awards for Best Actor and Original Music Score went to Joaquin Phoenix and Hildur Gunádóttir, respectively. The movie had a total of 11 Oscar nominations.
