Yes, yes… we have to wait for a long time but remember that when it hits the theaters, its incredible story will be worth the wait.

Let’s take a look at what the director has to say about this, “No other city has more resources than LA when it comes to our industry and to have this kind of support for the work we do from the California Film Commission’s Film and Television Tax Credit Program is a great welcome for all of us on ‘Joker: Folie à Deux.’

He added, “Having spent the last few years filming in iconic locations here in the U.S. and around the world, I’m looking forward to returning to work in the place I call home and serving the state by bringing a project of this scope to California”.

What Is Joker’s Real Name? DC Comics Finally Has An Answer

What Will Joker: Folie À Deux Be About?

The plot of their new sequel is completely shrouded in mystery. But still, through many reports and sources, it is said that the story will take place at the Arkham Asylum. And do you know what the title Folie À Deux is about?

The title of their new sequel is on a French phrase and when we translate that, it translates as “shared madness by two people in close association.” It probably looks like the sequel will adopt a story similar to their comics.

The story will take place as Harley Quinn and Arthur Fleck fall in love with each other at the asylum. The main theme of the movie will focus on their romance and how their relationship will affect the future. Their romance will reflect the cruel things that will happen in the future.

Just like the title explains, the story might adopt the madness of Harley Quinn and Arthur Fleck. But that’s not the only idea we have. wouldn’t it be more interesting if Joker 2 had actually “2” Jokers? Well, in a recent interview with GQ Phoenix gave an idea about this, let’s take a look at what he had to say.

“There is something interesting about, like, if there was a Joker imposter. So it would be possible to have not dueling Jokers but someone that [claims] to be the Joker that isn’t the Joker.” “And that kind of opens up the possibility of an interesting story, particularly if you had Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker, and then you had someone who was either imitating or riffing off what he did. I fantasized about that.”

Maybe we’ll get to see the action of Joker vs Joker, the madness of two? Who knows… Whatever the case, the plot will be crazy enough to surprise their fans. And this time, the sequel will also be musical. The movie will be pure madness.

Will Batman be at Joker 2?


As we all know, Joker’s greatest enemy is Batman, the protector of Gotham City and after witnessing Joker at the end of Riddler this gave the fans hope that we might get to see Joker 2 being connected with Batman. After seeing Joker behind the bars, there is a slight hope that we will get to witness Robert Pattinson in the new sequel.

Well, Matt Reeves gave us a slight explanation on why he decided to put the scene where the Joker was behind the bars. In an interview with Variety, he explained why he chose to include Joker at the end of the movie.

“I initially tested it without it; when I put it back in, the scores for the ending went back up. And I think it wasn’t just that people enjoyed seeing that character. It changed people’s response to the very ending of the movie, to see that Gotham was still Gotham and that Batman really didn’t have a choice. He has to keep doing what he’s gonna do.”

And when the Joker was released back in 2019, it wasn’t connected to DC Universe. Phillips didn’t connect the character with Justice League, he focused the story more on Villain’s past. The director solely wanted to focus more on joker’s life than connecting it with anything else, he even told Warner Bros about starting a new project called “DC Black” where each director could pick one DC character and explain their solo story.

“I said, ‘This will be the first movie, and then we’ll get this director to do that, and this director to do this, and we’ll call it DC Black, and Joker will be the first film. In a weird way, it gives you two bites of the apple, of these characters. You can do these kinds of down-and-dirty character studies over here, and still do the DC Universe over there. To which they said, ‘Okay, calm down, you’re not starting a label here at Warners, but this is interesting. Go write this and tell us what you’re thinking.’” 

And with this interview, it is clear that the movie will be the same as it was before. We might not get to see the appearance of Batman in the movie because the movie will give more priority to explaining Joker’s life.
