Joker: Folie à Deux is shaping up to be an incredibly enigmatic movie. We've learned a surprising amount of useful information in a short amount of time. Since the movie's announcement, we've learned a title, release date, a surprising returning cast member and now someone has been cast in a secret role! Who it could be is up in the air, but we know it's not Dr. Harleen Quinzel as that honor goes to Lady Gaga, who will undoubtedly serve the movie's musical numbers well. Catherine Keener (Get out, Capote) is joining Joker 2 in a mysterious role.
Everyone will be wondering now who she could be playing. If her role is being kept under wraps, it must be someone important to the plot. If it was some meaningless role, surely Warner Bros and DC would be comfortable revealing it! This means she could be potentially cast as someone from the larger DC Universe. I can't make any guesses because I just don't know who could be used in a film like Joker 2. I really hope she can sing though since she might need to join some of the film's rumored musical numbers.
So, when can we expect to see Joker 2 released? Well, they gotta make it first. It sounds like the film will start production in December which is just a few months out. The actual release date for the film is quite a ways away, still. Joker: Folie à Deux is set to release on October 4, 2023.
There are a lot of expectations for Joker 2, seeing as the first film grossed over $1 billion and was pretty much universally critically acclaimed. It won two academy awards off of eleven nominations, and the sequel will reportedly have double the budget the first one did. The pressure is on for Joker 2, but if they knock it out of the park, well, the rewards will be huge.
Don't forget, you can watch Joker: Folie à Deux October 4th, 2023.
