Director Todd Phillips teases fans with new photos of 'Joker: Folie à Deux', featuring Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga. Get ready for an epic sequel! Premieres on October 4, 2024, with a star-studded cast. Don't miss the madness! #Joker #HarleyQuinn #DCElseworlds

Director Todd Phillips has given DC fans an early Christmas present by teasing the highly anticipated sequel to the hit 2018 film ‘Joker’ with brand new photos featuring none other than Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga. That’s right, folks, get ready for ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’!

Phillips took to Instagram to share the exciting news, wishing everyone a happy holiday and a beautiful new year. And what better way to spread some festive cheer than by dropping some jaw-dropping photos of the upcoming movie. In the first photo, we see Phoenix’s Joker behind bars, and in the second photo, Lady Gaga’s Harley Quinn is gazing at the Joker with his iconic makeup on. Talk about a dynamic duo!

But wait, there’s more! The film is set to premiere on October 4, 2024, so mark your calendars and get ready for an epic cinematic experience. And if that’s not exciting enough, the star-studded cast also includes Catherine Keener, Brendan Gleeson, and Zazie Beetz. With a lineup like that, it’s safe to say we’re in for a wild ride.

Now, before you get too carried away, it’s important to note that ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ is part of the DC Elseworlds and is not part of the universe that Peter Safran and James Gunn are building since taking the helm of DC Studios. So, this is a whole new adventure for our favorite characters, and we can’t wait to see what Phillips has in store for us.

But let’s talk about the real showstoppers here – Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga. We all know Phoenix nailed his role as the Joker in the first film, and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the table this time around. And with Lady Gaga stepping into the shoes of Harley Quinn, we’re in for a treat. It’s a role previously portrayed by Margot Robbie in films like ‘Suicide Squad’ (2016), ‘Birds of Prey’ (2020), and ‘The Suicide Squad’ (2021), so Gaga has some big shoes to fill. But if anyone can do the character justice, it’s definitely Gaga. We have no doubt she’ll bring her A-game and then some.

Speaking of Robbie, she expressed her happiness that the Harley Quinn character will continue to live on. In an interview with MTV News in 2022, Robbie said, “It makes me so happy because I said from the very beginning, all I want is for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters, the way like Macbeth or Batman always gets passed from great actor to great actor. It’s such an honor to have built a foundation strong enough that Harley can now be one of those characters that other actors get to have a go at playing. I think she’ll do something incredible with it.” High praise from the original Harley Quinn herself!

All in all, ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ is shaping up to be a must-see film, and we can’t wait to dive headfirst into the madness once again. With Phillips at the helm and a cast like this, we have no doubt it’s going to be a wild and unforgettable ride. So, get ready for October 4, 2024, because the Joker and Harley Quinn are back, and they’re ready to take the world by storm.
