Joker: Folie à Deux is quickly ramping up towards the start of production as Todd Phillips looks to make his mark a second time in October 2024. Joaquin Phoenix will look to follow up on his Oscar-winning efforts from 2019 as Arthur Fleck, and he’ll have a stellar cast of actors helping the sequel accomplish its lofty goals.
Returning from the first movie is Zazie Beetz, who’s seen a great deal of success in the superhero genre with her role as Sophie Dumond along with her time as the luck-infused Domino in Fox’s Deadpool 2. And while she reunites with Phoenix for a second round of DC madness, they have some key new players joining the fray.
Grammy-award-winning singer/songwriter Lady Gaga will embody this universe’s Harley Quinn, while Harry Potter star Brendan Gleeson will join the crew in a role that hasn’t yet been disclosed. Now, that quartet of stars becomes a quintet as Joker 2 gains its fifth actor according to a recent report.
