WB Discovery has not yet revealed its plans for the DC Universe, but the studio’s stand-alone DC projects are safe and moving forward. WB Discovery: Additionally, the studio has approved a sequel to Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker, which Todd Phillips and star Phoenix will direct, in addition to Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
Joker: Folie a Deux, which translates to “madness or delusion shared by two people,” was confirmed by Phillips earlier this year. As a result, there was speculation that Joker 2 would feature a love interest for Arthur Fleck, such as Harley Quinn.

Lady Gaga clarified rumors that she was in talks to play Quinn and that Joker 2 would be a musical by releasing the first official teaser for the upcoming sequel, Joker 2.

This bold and surprising decision was made to turn Joker 2 into a musical when the first film was not. However, Gaga’s involvement makes the decision seem slightly more reasonable.

On the other hand, Phoenix is no stranger to singing in front of the camera. For his role as Johnny Cash in 2005’s Walk the Line, the actor had to learn to sing and play the guitar. He was nominated for Best Actor at the Academy Awards for the role.
Although the teaser does not explicitly state it, it appears that the two will be dancing and singing in the sequel. There were also reports at the time of the film’s release that Arkham Asylum would play a significant role in the story.
Joker 2 Release Date
The release date for Joker 2 has been set. According to a new report, the follow-up to the Joaquin Phoenix-starring 2019 film will be released on Halloween, 2024. With a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Todd Phillips will return to direct Joker: Folie à Deux.
This year marks the fifth anniversary of the release of DC Comics’ Academy Award-nominated entry, Joker 2, which will open in theaters on the same day. We can safely assume that Arkham will be the setting for the Joker-Harley romance in 2024 since that’s where the 2019 film left Phoenix Fleck, and that’s also the title of the sequel. The release date for Joker: Folie a Deux is October 4, 2024.
