'Joker 2' Release Date Confirmed For October 2024, Joaquin Phoenix To Return

'Joker 2' Release Date Confirmed For October 2024, Joaquin Phoenix To Return

Back in June, we got the exciting news that a sequel to the 2019 psychological thriller Joker is on the way. Let’s face it, it was really only a matter of time - if a movie manages to rake in over $1 billion at the box office, it’s in most people’s interests to bring it back, and, well, that’s exactly what’s happening. 


The film is titled Joker: Folie á Deux, which apparently refers to a psychological disorder in which symptoms of delusions or hallucinations are sent from one person to another. That right there is probably a rather large hint towards the plot of the movie, but it’s unfortunately all we have to go on for now. 

While you're here, be sure to take a look at this amazing deleted scene from The Batman, featuring Joker.



Anyway, now, we may not have any more story details, but we do have something else very important - the release date. Deadline reports that, according to an update in Comscore, Joker: Folie á Deux is set to hit cinema screens on 4 October 2024. They also claim that production of the film is set to begin this December.

So, that’s quite a wait ahead of us. It was previously reported that Lady Gaga is apparently being considered for the role of Harley Quinn, and that the whole movie may actually be a musical. That’s still unofficial information, as of now, but I’ll admit I’m very curious to see how that'd even work. Todd Phillips, who’s set to direct Folie á Deux (and also directed Joker), previously worked as a producer on A Star Is Born (2018), so it wouldn’t be his first time working with Lady Gaga, if the rumours are true.

Meanwhile, it’s also been announced that a new Spotify podcast show is on the way, which will tell Harley Quinn’s origin story from her perspective. Harley Quinn & The Joker: Sound Mind will star Christina Ricci (The Addams FamilyThe Matrix Resurrections) as Harley, which is amazing in and of itself. There’s currently no release date for the show - hopefully it’ll come out sooner than the Joker sequel to help tide us over.
