A role that gets under your skin: actor Joaquin Phoenix will once again slip into the role of the villain “Joker”. But fans will have to be patient.

Los Angeles – Hollywood star Joaquin Phoenix delighted cinema audiences with the dark “Joker” character in 2019. Five years later, a sequel to the comic book adaptation, directed by Todd Phillips, is set to hit the big screen.

Studio Warner Bros. announced on Wednesday (local time) that “Joker: Folie à Deux” will hit theaters in US theaters on October 4, 2024. According to, filming is set to begin in December.

Phillips posted a photo of the script on Instagram back in June, along with the film’s title and credits to the screenwriters (Phillips and Scott Silver). He also provided an image of Phoenix reading the script. “Folie à Deux” describes a mental disorder that is transmitted from a person affected to a person close to them. Nothing has been officially announced about the content of the sequel. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lady Gaga (“A Star is Born”) is said to be in talks for a role.

The gritty original film, starring Phoenix as Batman’s mentally ill antagonist living on the fringes of Gotham City society, grossed more than $1 billion worldwide in 2019. Phoenix won the Oscar for best actor, and the thriller won the Golden Lion for best film at the Venice Film Festival. dpa
