Joker: Folie à Deux, after Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga, Warner has found another actor

To complete the cast of the next Todd Philips film Joker: Madness for Twoanother actor comes to lend the reply to Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga.

It won’t take long before Warner decides to edit the sequel to the much appreciated Joker by Todd Philips released in 2019. The success was such that the film exceeded the sacrosanct milestone of one billion dollars in international revenue. For once, Warner had taken risks and for once, she had hit the nail on the head. Surround yourself with a comedy director (the trilogy very bad trip) and wanting to tell the story of the birth of the Joker after the umpteenth incarnations that preceded him was suicide (squad). Who would have thought that the business could pay off?

Nobody. And yet, the feature film by Todd Philips very quickly established itself as one of the must-haves of 2019. Multi-nominated and Oscar-winning, well-photographed and directed, with an inspired Joaquin Phoenix and a current, deep and relevant speech, the production was shaped with a darkness and an unprecedented realism in the wake of superheroic blockbusters. No wonder therefore that Jokerthe radical work following in the footsteps of Martin Scorcese, aping The waltz of the puppets or Taxi Driver was given birth to a sequel. And today, the cast of Joker: Madness for Two becomes clearer.

You who see the film come to fruition

Recently, we learned that some actors from the first film reprized their respective roles for this sequel. The natural opportunity to find Joaquin Phoenix in the skin of Arthur Fleck, our Joker. Will be introducing Zazie Beetz to reprise her role as Sophie Dumond. As for newcomers, we are counting on the presence of Lady Gaga who will play Harley Quinn and now we learn that Brendan Gleeson will also be there.. If the Irish actor known in particular for his roles in Harry Potter and Kisses from Bruges will camp a character for the moment still unknown, we will find him very quickly on the big screen.

Indeed, Brendan Gleeson invites himself to dark rooms on December 28, 2022 in the next film by Martin McDonagh. He will form a duo with Colin Farrell and will play two friends who, once found alone on an isolated island, will put an end to their friendship. A refined and anti-spectacular synopsis which certainly hides something, because although stingy with details, the director has almost never disappointed. After Kisses from Bruges, 7 Psychopaths and the very big 3 Billboards – The Revenge Billboardswe can clearly expect to receive a little slap.

For now, Joker: Madness for Two can boast of its size cast. Whether musical comedy rumors (justifying the presence of Lady Gaga) and an intrigue set in Arkham Asylum (where we left the Joker at the end of the first film) went around the internet, nothing is certain. Also, we can always hope for the return of Hildur Guðnadóttir, the Oscar-winning composer of the film, to stack up again and shine this time in the register of musical comedy.

What we do know, however, is the release date of this intriguing project. To confirm the gossip and reunite with Arthur Fleck in Todd Philips’ upcoming drama, you will have to wait until October 2, 2024.
