New Promotional Images for the Sequel to 'Joker' Are Unveiled

The upcoming film Joker: Folie à Deux has received two new promotional photos from director Todd Philips. Both of these photos are crucial hints for the upcoming continuation of Arthur Fleck’s saga. 

What do These Images Reveal? 

Todd Philips, director of the upcoming film Joker: Folie à Deux, has posted two new photos from the sequel on Instagram. The first one depicts Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck locked behind cell E258 within Arkham Asylum, a staple location within the Batman mythos and a confirmed setting within the film. The second image depicts Fleck standing beside Lady Gaga’s portrayal of Harley Quinn, the latter expressing romantic interest. With the release of these photos, fans hopefully won’t have to wait too long for the next promotions. Even if Philips gave no other context, fans at least have something to sate their anticipation for the sequel.

The Story of Joker: Folie A Deux 

At the time of publication, an official plot summary has not been released for Joker: Folie à Deux, made even vaguer as the previous film ended with no hooks for a sequel. As both promotional photos imply, Arkham Asylum will be a major setting and Harley Quinn is heavily implied to be a major player alongside Joker. Given that Harley is nearly as iconic as the clown prince of crime himself, many fans speculate how she will be depicted alongside Phoenix’s Joker. Interestingly, the film’s subtitle is a French saying referring to a shared madness between two individuals, emphasizing the relationship between Arthur and Harley. Lastly, for reference, the Joker duology is separate from either the DCEU or the upcoming DCU. 

The Status of the Sequel to Joker

While Joker: Folie à Deux has yet to receive a proper trailer, the film already has a lengthy story of its development. While no sequel was originally intended, development began immediately after the film made $1 billion at the box office. Apart from Phoenix and Gaga, Zazie Beetz, Brendan Gleeson, and Katherine Keener are also slated to star in the film. Famously, the film was confirmed to be a musical, a stark contrast to the duology’s grim tone. Additionally, the film has a liminal place within DC’s films, being released after the final film of the DCEU, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, and the beginning of the rebooted DCU, Superman: Legacy

Joker: Folie à Deux will be released in theaters on October 24, 2024.
