Exciting News from the DC Universe

Fans of the award-winning 2019 hit movie “Joker” are eagerly awaiting the sequel, titled “Joker: Folie a Deux”.

Furthermore, audiences can expect the first look and movie trailer to be unveiled on April 9 at the 2022 CinemaCon event in Las Vegas.

Trailer Release and the ‘First Look'

Daniel Richtman, a noted scooper, disclosed WB's plan to release the movie trailer on April 9. Fittingly, it coincides with CinemaCon, usually the platform of choice for film studios to launch hot new content. Fans worldwide stand a good of seeing this footage afterward, setting the stage for the film's release on October 4.

Insights into the Plot

Despite secrecy around the storyline, it's confirmed that the plot combines elements from Arkham Asylum with a significant role for Harley Quinn. What particularly stands out is the movie's musical element. Drawing on Lady Gaga's musical roots and the themes from the first movie, the sequel has a strikingly different presentation. However, fans will be interested to note that this movie, like its predecessor, isn't part of James Gunn's DC Universe. Instead, it falls under the banner of DC Elseworlds, housing the DC Universe's stand-alone projects.

The Star-Studded Cast

Alongside Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga, there are notable additions to the cast. These include Jacob Lofland, Catherine Keener, and Brenden Gleeson, with the latter two's roles yet to be disclosed. HBO's Industry star Harry Lawtey lands an undisclosed yet reportedly significant role. Zazie Beetz might just reprise her role from the first Joker film, but that's purely speculative.

Release Date and Oscar Buzz

Warner Bros. has scheduled the release on October 4, 2024, putting the movie squarely within the awards season. Given Phoenix's Best Actor win for the first movie, a major Oscar for him and Gaga is anticipated. This aligns with early reactions to test screenings of the film, especially complimenting Gaga's performance.

Musical Elements Re-defined

revealed that “Joker: Folie a Deux” takes the form of a jukebox musical. Comprised of fifteen cover songs, each has been reimagined by the movie's returning composer, Hildur Guðnadóttir. The movie's title translates to “madness of two”, likely referring to the twisted relationship between Joker and Harley Quinn.

An Opulent Production

The movie's budget reportedly surpasses $200 million, marking a substantial increase from the original film's $60 million. The considerable budget is justified by the high expectations riding on the Phoenix-Gaga duo, who have commanding paychecks worth $20 million and $12 million, respectively.

Despite the several more months before fans can venture into the latest havoc-wreaking adventure of Joker and Harley Quinn, the buildup ensures a spectacle to remember. With every small reveal, the anticipation only magnifies. As madness spirals into more madness, expectations for “Joker: Folie a Deux” soar higher.
