The sequel to 2019’s Oscar-winning Joker is deliberate for launch on October 4th 2024, Deadline stories. Director Todd Phillips beforehand confirmed the sequel was shifting forward in June underneath the title Joker: Folie à Deux, which accurately interprets to “insanity for 2.”
Joaquin Phoenix, who gained the Oscar for Finest Actor for his portrayal of the character within the first film, is predicted to return for the sequel, Selection stories, whereas Girl Gaga is reportedly in talks to star alongside him, in line with The Hollywood Reporter. The hypothesis is that Gaga might play Joker’s long-standing accomplice Harley Quinn (beforehand performed by Margot Robbie within the DCEU), and that Gaga’s potential involvement might even lead the movie to incorporate extra musical parts.
Though Joker had initially been meant 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 alternative. That’s particularly the case given the bumpy efficiency of Warner Bros. movies primarily based on titles from DC Comics. Though this yr’s The Batman was broadly thought-about to be a hit (with a sequel shortly greenlit), Ezra Miller’s solo outing as The Flash has been mired in difficulties, and final yr’s The Suicide Squad flopped on the field workplace.
Manufacturing on the Joker sequel is because of kick off in December, Deadline stories.
