Movie Fans Think The ‘Joker’ Sequel Will Either Feature TWO Jokers Or Harley Quinn

Fans Think The 'Joker' Sequel Will Feature TWO Jokers Or Harley Quinn

Warner Bros.

  • Todd Phillips’ 2019 film Joker earned over $1 billion at the box office and was nominated for Best Picture.
  • A sequel to the hit film was officially announced earlier this week.
  • Fans think the film’s apparent subtitle is hinting at either Harley Quinn or two Jokers.

After years of speculation surrounding whether or not the project would come to fruition, Warner Bros. and Joker director Todd Phillips have officially announced that a sequel to the wildly successful 2019 film — the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time — is in the works.

In a post on Instagram, Phillips shared a photo of Joaquin Phoenix — who won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance as Gotham’s Clown Prince of Crime — reading the script, which is apparently titled Joker: Folie à Deux. In French, “Folie à Deux” means “madness for two.”

Given the sequel’s apparent subtitle, DC fans have begun to speculate what exactly “madness for two” will mean within the context of the film, with early theories suggesting the title is a reference to either *two* different Joker or Harley Quinn.

Personally, I’d prefer… neither of those options. Margot Robbie already plays Harley Quinn and there’s also the excellent animated series on HBO Max. Meanwhile, not only is there Joaquin’s Joker but there’s Barry Keoghan’s in The Batman universe, too.

While the Joker sequel was officially announced, its release date was not. At this time, my guess is that it’ll hit theaters during the 2023 holiday season — but that’s pure speculation. 2024 at the latest.
