New Look At ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ Arrives One Year Ahead Of Sequel’s Release

Could a trailer for Joker: Folie à Deux be arriving tomorrow? There’s speculation because tomorrow marks the four year anniversary of the release of Joker, and one year away from the sequel’s theatrical release. Seems like a pretty good time, right? Also, because director Todd Phillips has taken this day to drop a new image of Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck.

It still feels a bit too soon for a trailer, but who knows? Maybe a short teaser, or a drop of some photos featuring the cast, which includes Lady Gaga as Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn, Zazie Beetz as Sophie Dumond, Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, and more.

What we know about the film suggests it’s going to be really wild, as it will be a musical largely set within the confines of Arkham Asylum. Expect the story to move outside of the psychiatric hospital’s walls and into Gotham City, though. Who knows? Perhaps an encounter with a young Bruce Wayne? Honestly, Phillips could do pretty much anything he wants since this is a movie disconnected from the DCU.

Joker: Folie à Deux hits theaters on October 4th 2024.
