Joaquin Phoenix as Joker has won our hearts as a villain in the blockbuster Joker 2019. It earned him an Oscar crossing $1 billion globally. The fans have been looking forward to the sequel. There is good news for them, the Joker is making a comeback with Joker. Todd Philips who directed the 2019 film, is ready to direct another one Joker 2.
According to the sources, “Director Todd Phillips’ original, stand-alone origin story Joker explores the world of—and according to—Arthur Fleck. Indelibly portrayed by Phoenix, Arthur is a man facing the cruelty and outright scorn of society, along with the indifference of a system that allows him to spiral from vulnerability into depravity. A clown-for-hire by day, he strives to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds that the joke always seems to be on him. He’s out of tune with everyone around him, as evidenced by his uncontrollable, inappropriate laughter, which gains momentum as he attempts to contain it, exposing him to further ridicule—and even violence. Arthur, who devotes himself to caring for his fragile mother, seeks out every father figure he’s never had, from wealthy businessman Thomas Wayne to TV host Murray Franklin. Caught in a cyclical existence teetering on the precipice of reality and madness, one bad decision brings about a chain reaction of escalating, ultimately deadly, events.”
Lady Gaga will be playing Harley Quinn in this sequel. Along with Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2), Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham are also starring in this movie. The release date given by studios is 4th October, 2024. The plot hasn’t been revealed yet, but it would be musical to some extent.
