Joker 2 release date officially announced

Joker 2 release date officially announced

Following the news that Warner Bros. Discovery cancels Batgirl, a question mark suddenly stuck on a lot of DC projects. Well, all of them except for Joker 2 which now has a fixed release date of 2024.

According to Deadline, Joker: Folie A Deux will premiere on October 4, 2024. Director Todd Phillips has co-wrote the script for the Joker sequel with star Joaquin Phoenix who will reprise his role as Arthur Fleck, the man who becomes the Joker.

Every DC movie and series is influenced by the Warner Bros. Discovery merger process.

Earlier this week, WB Discovery cast Batgirl, an already completed movie that cost $90 million to produce. While insiders say the film has been ruled out to recover costs, previous reports have also claimed that the new owners of Warner Bros. They were looking to replenish DC’s movie lineup with more movies like Joker and other notable characters.

Given that the first Joker movie became the highest-grossing movie in the R category and was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, it’s possible that there was absolutely no danger that the next Joker movie would be switched away under the new management.

Besides the Joker sequel, several other DC projects are still in the works including Shazam, Black Adam, Aquaman 2, and The Flash. There’s also a separate Batman universe and a separate universe for Matt Reeves.

Joker’s plot details: Folie A Deux is hidden, but the subtitle refers to a psychic suffering that affects two people at once. If one of the partners is the Joker, there are plenty of possibilities as to who the second person could be whether it’s Harley Quinn or someone else.

It was also reported that the movie could be a musical with Lady Gaga playing Harley Quinn.
