The project of ‘Joker 2’ is increasingly intriguing. A few days ago it was announced that its title for now is ‘Joker: Folie a Deux’, but the real surprise has now come to know thanks to The Hollywood Reporter that this long-awaited sequel will be a musical. And as if that were not enough, it also seems that they want Lady Gaga to be the new Harley Quinn.
At the moment, the protagonist of ‘The House of Gucci’ is in negotiations to give life to a version of Quinn different from the one played by margot robbie. Let’s not forget that ‘Joker’ was not part of the DC Extended Universe, hence something like this is possible without breaking any type of continuity.
Joaquin Phoenix remains uncommitted
That yes, the presence of Lady Gaga is not the only thing that is in the air, because joaquin phoenix He has not yet committed in writing to reprise this iconic character. Of course, everything seems much more advanced there, but the actor could always back out at the last moment and the whole project falls apart.
Now we will have to carefully follow how to evolve ‘Joker 2’. It is clear that at Warner they are wanting to do it, logical considering that it raised 1,074 million when it cost just 55 million, and also that Todd Phillips has contributed strongly to the project, but they continue to depend on Phoenix. Without him, the sequel would be meaningless.
