‘Joker 2: Folie Deux’: Everything we know, including release date, cast and plot


Todd Phillips finally gets his return as the long-awaited Joker 2 – Joker: Folie à Deux – is approved.

Director Hangover returns in 2019 to direct the sequel to the psychological thriller, following in the bloody footsteps of the original. Arthur Fleckdo, who takes on the title of Prince of Crime, is played by Joaquin Phoenix.

The Joker left us with more questions than answers, but since the first movie was sold as a standalone unrelated to the DC universe, many thought the story ended there.

This is no ordinary Batman movie. Expectations are high for Joker: Polly A Dew, as the Joker won the Phoenix Academy Award for Best Actor.

Who are the cast of Joker 2?

Phoenix will reprise his role as Arthur Fleck, which should come as no surprise to anyone. Released in 2019, Joker featured an all-star ensemble including Francis Conroy, Robert De Niro, and Zazie Beats. There aren’t many options when it comes to bringing the cast back.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lady Gaga will be the first rookie to join the ensemble. Even better, the cast of A Star Is Born is playing Harley Quinn. According to the website, the Joker 2 will be a musical and it will be very different from the previous movies, but to be honest, it will be very similar to the Joker.

It’s likely Beetz will reprise her role as Sophie, as the cinematographer of the film said Fleck didn’t kill her despite her obscure ending. It appears that the deaths of Thomas and Martha Wayne left Brett Cullen out as Thomas Wayne, but keep in mind that he is Arthur’s father.

It’s possible that De Niro’s Murray Franklin wasn’t filmed on live TV because of the film’s unreliable narrator, but we’d be surprised if he returns.

If Folie à Deux wants to investigate the beginning of Batman’s devastating relationship with Mr. J, Douglas Hodge could re-enter his role as Alfred Pennyworth and Dante Pereira-Olsen could transform into the young Bruce Wayne.

What is the plot of Joker 2?

The Joker’s ending threw everything on the brink. Imprisoned after instigating commotion across Gotham City, Fleck was imprisoned at Arkham State Hospital at an unknown time. Fleck escaped after killing the therapist, so Polly Adew will most likely pursue him as he continues his path to becoming the Joker. The idea of ​​a musical is also interesting. It suggests that Joker 2 could follow in the footsteps of shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Boys, both of which had musical episodes. It also supports the notion that this time we will delve deeper into the spirit of Fleck.

Besides Batman, there’s someone else living with the Joker, and Folie à Deux is the ideal way to introduce Harley Quinn into this dark and gloomy world. The Joker’s ending is Dr. It sets her up perfectly as Harleen Quinzel did in her Arkham Asylum.

Like Reeves’ The Batman, it’s unlikely Margot Robbie will return to Joker 2 because the Joker exists on its own, but what if Sophie turns out to be Joker’s Puddin? The Joker’s story isn’t entirely out of the realm of possibility because of his promiscuous nature. Had it not been for Beetz and Gaga, countless A-listers would have competed for the role of Harley Quinn.

Dafoe envisioned a plot where someone attempted to imitate Fleck’s work, transforming a tragic anti-hero into a full-fledged hero chasing a more insane criminal clown prince. Before the Joker was released, there were concerns about the age difference between Fleck and Bruce Wayne, leading to speculation that this version of the Joker might not be the Joker Batman would face. If you’re still unsure, imagine Waynes was watching Zorro, Gay Blade. Zorro was the real Zorro teaching his gay twins to be the next hero.

Already in 2019, rumors of Joker 2 began to circulate, and in May 2021, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Phillips had signed up to write a sequel. When it comes to Joker 2’s release date, your guess is as good as ours. Warner Bros. is preparing a long list of DC movies that will take us well through 2023, from Black Adam to Flash.

On Instagram, Phillips shared a photo of Phoenix reading the script, confirming that the plot was at least complete.
