Joker: Folie à Deux is the sequel to the 2019 film starring Joaquin Phoenix. We don’t know all that much about the storyline. But we do know that this film will feature the Joker’s leading lady, Harley Quinn.

IMDb simply lists the storyline for the film as, “Sequel to the film Joker from 2019”.

The title means ‘Madness for Two’ in French, so that gives some suggestion of where we’re going with this film. We also know Joker: Folie à Deuxs will be a musical, so get ready.

Who is in the cast of Joker: Folie à Deux?

As mentioned, Lady Gaga (A Star is Born) has stepped into the role of Harley Quinn, and is joined by Joaquin Phoenix (Napoleon) who returns as ‘Joker’ Arthur Fleck. Zazie Beetz (Deadpool 2) also features in the film as Sophie Dumond, along with Brendan Gleeson (The Banshees of Inisherin), Catherine Keener (Get Out) and more.

Is there a Joker 2 trailer?

For a while now, all we’ve had is this teaser featuring animated versions of the starring actors dancing…

As of April 10, however, we officially have our first teaser trailer to obsess over. The clip takes us through the beginnings of the Joker and Harley Quinn relationship, and hints at some (no surprises, here) pretty violent turns ahead – all played out to a sweet little rendition of ‘What The World Needs Now’. Watch it below:

Back in 2023, we also got a glimpse of Lady Gaga in costume as Harley Quinn. As you can see, it’s a world away from Margot Robbie’s take, which we think is rather a good thing.

Where can I watch the 2019 Joker movie?

If you’d like to refresh your memory a little and check out the 2019 Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix, you can find it streaming in Australia on Netflix, Stan, Prime Video and Binge.
