Joker 2 will be officially released in October 2024.
James Gunn and Peter Safran, the current leaders of DC Studios, have revealed that the second edition of the Batman villain, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga, will be the first film produced under the Warner Bros. label along with the reboot of the DC Universe.
For the time being, Joker 2 is planned to release on October 4, 2024. Although there are a number of things that could cause a delay. Since the filming for the project has already been finished, production shouldn’t be too difficult. Strikes by the Writers and Actors Guild, however, are a significant issue that might be at play.
While the strikes should end by the time Joker 2 prepares for release, there is a chance that there may be delays if any reshoots are required, as almost every major superhero film these days.
Thankfully, the first round of Joker 2 filming was completed in April 2023. Phillips announced this in an Instagram post with images of actors Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga and a comment praising them for their efforts.
It should come as no surprise that Arkham Asylum is the setting for Joker 2 given how Arthur Fleck was detained there at the conclusion of the first movie. The asylum is said to play a significant role in the tale after the psychopath was imprisoned at the conclusion of the first movie, and this is where the sequel will reportedly take place most of the time.
There have been rumours that Harley Quinn will be a patient at Arkham Asylum in Joker 2 rather than the physician tasked with treating Arthur Fleck. This indicates that it will depart from comic book canon. Although there are little additional plot specifics, this next adventure ought to be rather dramatic.
The Great Controversy: Will it really be a musical?
Joker 2 will take a very different path than today’s superhero films. This sequel will actually be a musical In all rules. Star Zazie Beetz commented that the second installment will indeed be a musical, noting that the decision “makes perfect sense.” In doing so, he praised director Todd Phillips for “creative approach to the character”.
