Joker 2: Madness for Two already has an official release date while the film is not expected for several years. This sequel would take place in a cult place surveyed by Batman.
In the wake of the cancellation of the Batgirl movie, Warner Bros. diverted attention by communicating on Joker 2: Folie à Deux. The sequel to the DC feature film now has a very specific release date. And we may know in which setting Joaquin Phoenix will play Lady Gaga.
Joker 2 reveals its release date without warning
Surprise ! Joker 2: Folie à Deux has a release date set at October 4, 2024, i.e. 5 years after the first opus which allowed Warner to reconnect with both critical and commercial success. Todd Phillips’ film grossed over $1.07 billion at the global box office and won the Oscars. Joaquin Phoenix, who plays Arthur Fleck alias Joker, won the statuette for best actor and the work was also awarded in the category “Best soundtrack”.
And apart from this information? Warner said nothing. We must therefore stick to the rumor of the very serious The Hollywood Reporter. Some time ago, the site published an article stating that Joker 2 would be a musical with, potentially, Lady Gaga to play Harley Quinn. Which would also explain the subtitle “Folie à Deux”.
On his side, The Wrap states that according to their sources, most of the movie would take place inside Arkham Asylum. Again, it would make sense to stage the meeting between Joker and Harley Quinn.
See you in a few weeks or months to confirm these rumors around Joker 2.
