The sequel to 2019’s Oscar-winning Joker is deliberate for launch on October 4th 2024, Deadline reviews. Director Todd Phillips beforehand confirmed the sequel was transferring forward in June underneath the title Joker: Folie à Deux, which accurately interprets to “insanity for 2.”
Joaquin Phoenix, who received the Oscar for Finest Actor for his portrayal of the character within the first film, is predicted to return for the sequel, Selection reviews, whereas Woman Gaga is reportedly in talks to star alongside him, in keeping with The Hollywood Reporter. The hypothesis is that Gaga could play Joker’s long-standing associate Harley Quinn (beforehand performed by Margot Robbie within the DCEU), and that Gaga’s potential involvement may even lead the movie to include extra musical components.
Though Joker had initially been supposed as a standalone movie, its success on the field workplace and the Academy Awards (the place it acquired 11 nominations together with for Finest Image) made a sequel an apparent selection. That’s particularly the case given the bumpy efficiency of Warner Bros. movies based mostly on titles from DC Comics. Though this 12 months’s The Batman was extensively thought-about to be successful (with a sequel shortly greenlit), Ezra Miller’s solo outing as The Flash has been mired in difficulties, and final 12 months’s The Suicide Squad flopped on the field workplace.
Manufacturing on the Joker sequel is because of kick off in December, Deadline reviews.
