Few adaptations of sleepover comics have caused as much impact at the critical, public and social level as Todd Phillips’ controversial ‘Joker’ did in 2019. And it is that this DC Clown Prince of Crime origin story fucking upside down the industry with his unique, violent and raw approach to the character played by a Joaquin Phoenix as brilliant as ever.
Since then, many voices have been raised asking the universe for a sequel and, after a long season of rumors and denials, it has ended up confirming that ‘Joker 2’ will be a reality. To warm up engines for its premiere – whose date is yet to be determined – we are going to collect all the information that emerges about the feature film in this article, which will be updated regularly.
When does ‘Joker 2’ premiere?
At the moment, the project is in its infancy, with an official confirmation of its launch by Todd Phillips himself —which does not mean that there is a green light from the studio, although given the success of the original, it will be rare. not be received with open arms. Under these circumstances, it is understandable that ‘Joker 2’ does not have a release date marked on the calendaralthough the logical thing would be for it not to arrive for at least two or three years.
Cast and protagonists of ‘Joker 2’
Similarly, it is unknown who will be part of the cast of ‘Joker 2’. What we do know is that Joaquin Phoenix, who won the Oscar for best actor for his role in the original, is already reading the script. It is not unreasonable to think that, after some other adjustment made by himself, he ends up accepting the role again in a sequel that he was never too sure of doing.
Will Zazie Beetz come back? Will we see the rumored Willem DaFoe accompany Phoenix? Only time will tell.
The director of ‘Joker 2’
After his fantastic work in the first ‘Joker’, Todd Phillips will go behind the scenes again in this sequel. The director, associated with past comedies, made his debut with the hilarious ‘Road Trip (Trip of pirates)’ in 2000, after which he left us pearls like ‘Those university sprees’, the ‘Starsky & Hutch’ movie or the ‘Resacón’ trilogy released in 2009, 2011 and 2013; being his last work before his association with DC the recommendable ‘Gun Game’ starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller.
The ‘Joker 2’ team
More unknowns to the list! Currently we can only confirm that in the script department, Phillips himself has once again teamed up with double Oscar nominee Scott Silver —write from the original and titles like ‘The Fighter’ and ‘8 Mile’— to shape the story.
If there are any other wishes to be made, my personal list of priorities is headed by the return of the Oscar winner Hildur Guðnadóttir to the soundtrack—his compositions for ‘Joker’ were truly impressive—and to the director of photography Lawrence Sherwhich captured Arthur Fleck’s odyssey on 35mm with a unique and spectacular look.
The story of ‘Joker 2’
Do not expect many details about the plot of ‘Joker 2’ beyond the purely speculative at this time. The only clue we can get about her is in the working title of his script, ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ — which translates to ‘Shared Madness’ —. With whom will Arthur share his mental problems? Will we see Harley Quinn around here? Will we have a second Joker embodied, as we mentioned, by Willem DaFoe? For now, we can only dream.
