‘Joker’ Sequel ‘Folie à Deux’ Slated for Fall 2024 Release

A day after Warner Bros Discovery axed “Batgirl” for HBO Max, Warner has set a date for DC: Todd Phillips’ ”Joker” sequel, Joker: Folie à Deux, on October 4, 2024. 

In 2019, Warners took the October domestic opening to gain $96.2 million with “Joker” in 2019. The film ended up earning $335.4M domestically and globally it is the highest-grossing R-rated movie ever at $1.07 billion. “Joker” won two Oscars: Best Actor for star Joaquin Phoenix and Original Music Score for Hildur Guðnadóttir. The movie was nominated for 11 Oscars including Best Picture and Phillips for Best Director.

The follow-up to 2019’s blockbuster “Joker” will be a musical (the original was a dark and gritty drama), with none other than Lady Gaga expected to play the Clown Prince of Crime’s co-conspirator Harley Quinn.

As indicated in Phillips’ social media post of the screenplay cover back in June, the sequel is entitled, “Joker: Folie à deux,” which is a French reference for a medical term pertaining to a mental disorder which affects two or more people.

We hear that a production start in December is on track for “Joker: Folie à Deux.” As we previously reported, one of the reasons “Batgirl” was unplugged had to do with how it would upset the DC multiverse continuum that’s being mapped out heading toward “The Flash” on July 23, 2023. The David Zaslav-run Warner Bros Discovery is serious about making DC a brand that’s fiercely competitive with Disney’s Marvel.
