Joker was one of the highest-grossing movies of 2019. The craze behind this movie was for real. The box office collection of this movie was 1.074 billion dollars. Joaquin Phoenix, the leading star, also won Oscar for the actor’s best performance in the leading role. Although the directors and producers of this movie signaled towards this being a one-off movie, we can already hear particular rumbling about the upcoming sequel.
When is Joker 2: Folie À Deux Movie Releasing?
There has been official announcement or confirmation about the sequel of this movie, being released on 4th October 2024. However, in May of last year, it was reported through specific sources that Todd Phillips, the director of Joker made a deal to co-write the second part of this billion dollars movie.
Well, it is no surprise that Warner Bros has taken over the golden opportunity to produce the sequel of this billion-dollar hit film, but they have a pretty packed schedule for the next two years. Several DC movies are lined up to be released, like The Suicide Squad will be coming out this year, The Batman, The Flash, Aquaman 2 in 2022, Shazam! Fury of the Gods in 2023. A particular date or timeline has been given for the release of Joker 2: Folie À Deux too. We are expecting it to be out in October 2023.
Who is Going to Appear in Joker 2: Folie À Deux Movie?
It is a bit too early to be commenting on the cast and crew of the upcoming sequel since there hasn’t been an official announcement of the same. But it would be a real bummer if the star of the show, Joaquin Phoenix, doesn’t return for it. The IMDb website labeled Joaquin as a rumored cast in the movie. In addition, Sophie Dumond, played by Zazie Beetz, has a possibility of returning, as confirmed by Lawrence Sher, the cinematographer of Joker.
To top it off, we also know now that Lady Gaga will be in the movie too. It was seen that she uploaded a post about it on her Instagram account. That does give us the hint that she will be in the movie. Though we do not know it now for sure if she will be the one play Harley Quinn or will that be someone else. Though it is for sure that seeing Gaga romance with Joaquin will be one hell of a show. Some tough love and bad blood that will be.
Probable Casting of Joker 2: Folie À Deux
Though we cannot be who has the chance to come back for the sequel, we definitely can tell you about who won’t be coming for the sequel. Robert De Niro, who played Robert Franklin, won’t be back as he was shot in the head, Penny Fleck, who played Arthur’s mother, won’t be back either as she was suffocated with a pillow by Arthur himself. Also, Thomas Wayne or Martha won’t be joining for the sequel either, as she was killed.
However, we may anticipate a significant emotional impact from Joker 2: Folie À Deux. Phillips previously told Deadline in 2019 that such a film (should it be made) would be “amazing” and “would have to have a strong thematic resonance like this one, which is ultimately about childhood trauma, a lack of love, and a lack of empathy. Each of these elements is what made this film effective for us. So, we’d need something with a similar psychological appeal.”
What will Be Joker 2: Folie À Deux Movie Plot?
Joker was left on a cliffhanger, where Joaquin Phoenix walks out of the mental asylum. He walks with blood-stained feet, leaving the viewers in great mystery and confusion. So, to solve the mystery, we think a sequel must be planned. Also, Bruce Wayne was shown very young in the movie when both of his parents were shot. So maybe there could be an upcoming Joker 2: Folie À Deux- Batman movie have shots of it too? Guessing is all we can do at this very moment.
Is Joker 2: Folie À Deux Movie Trailer Out?
About the teaser or trailer for Joker 2: Folie À Deux, there has been no such update in this area. And however, if anything comes up soon, we will notify you.
