Joker: Folie à Deux Release Date:

Revenge, vertigo, and love comics are seemingly on the cards in the bad romance charted by Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga in director Todd Philip’s highly-anticipated DC sequel, Joker 2. It will have been five years since the first part of Joker hit the theatres, and now the much-anticipated sequel is set to release at the end of this year.

There has been a confirmation from Warner Bros that Joker: Folie à Deux will hit the big screen on the 4th of October, 2024.

Joker 2: Cast & Crew

Cast & Crew

The highly anticipated Joker: Folie à Deux is surely going to make a blockbuster bit. But before knowing the story of this movie, it is important to know about the cast and crew. We will tell you about the two main characters of this movie, Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga.

About Joaquin Phoenix

With Joker being led by Joaquin Phoenix, Joker 2 obviously would not work without him returning to the big screen. Phoenix is going to reprise his role as the Clown Prince of Crime. Phoenix has already won so many awards for his performance, including the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama and the Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Actor.

The very fact that a Joker movie exists is evidence that this comic book villain has extended far beyond his origin as an eccentric rival to Batman and become a cultural icon, the clown-faced ambassador of madness.

About Lady Gaga:

In the Joker 2 film, Lady Gaga made headlines for joining as Harley Quinn. She is Worlds of DC’s second Harley Quinn after actress Margot Robbie. However, it is important to remember that Joker takes place in a timeline separate from other DC films like Suicide Squad.

Margot Robbie, who gave life to Harley Quinn, said in an interview about Lady Gaga’s casting, “It’s such an honor to have constructed a foundation powerful enough that Harley can now be one of those characters that other performers get to have a go at playing, and I think she’ll do something unimaginable with it.”

Joker 2: Trailer And Poster

Todd Philips’ Joker is ready to hit the theatres this year. While all the fans were hoping for a trailer soon, Philips has recently confirmed that they will have some patience for a bit longer. Answering the queries on social media, Philips mentioned that the first teaser for Joker 2 won’t be released until mid-April.

Todd Philips recently shared some fresh images from the film on 14th February, showcasing Gaga’s character Quinn and Phoenix’s Joker. From the images, it is quite clear that the movie will feature a romantic relationship between the couple.

One of the pictures shows Phoenix in his traditional burgundy suit and clown face makeup. He is standing next to Harley Quinn, dressed in a floral top with blue eye makeup. Another black-and-white picture depicts the two of them rubbing noses, with Phoenix in a jail cell.

The last picture is another black-and-white image of the couple dancing on a Gotham City rooftop. In this picture, Phoenix is seen in a black tuxedo, and Lady Gaga is in a long white wedding gown. Todd posted these pictures with the caption, “Hoping your day is full of love.”

Joker 2: Story

The much-anticipated sequel to Todd Philip’s Joker is set to hit the theatres this year on October 4. Every fan is waiting eagerly to see the first glimpse of this movie. Joker:  Folie à Deux is going to feature Joaquin Phoenix reprising his role as the iconic Batman villain, with Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn.

The title of Joker 2, Folie à Deux, refers to a psychiatric term referring to a situation where two or more persons share a delusion. While fans are expecting a psychological thriller from Philips, there is anticipation that the movie will also be going to explore a musical romance between Dr. Harleen Quinzel and Arthur Fleck.

In Joker 2, Dr. Quinzel has been given a task to treat Fleck, but her inner curiosity for his nihilistic personality slowly transforms into an unhealthy obsession. Mental disorders and health remain central themes in the sequel, although the first part faced criticism for handling these topics.

Lady Gaga’s role marks another interpretation of the famous DC Comics character, following Margot Robbie’s casting in the previous three films. Robbie expressed happiness to ComicBook at passing the torch to Lady Gaga, likening the role to iconic ones like Macbeth or Batman, which are often depicted by various actors over time. Margot Robbie saw this as a brilliant opportunity for Harley Quinn to join the ranks of timeless characters.

Final Line:

Joker 2 is heading our way on the 4th of October 2024. The much-anticipated sequel, officially titled Joker: Folie à Deux, has already completed filming ahead of its official release. However, the story has been kept under wraps for now, but we have already made some guesses about what the movie will be about.
