Hello everyone, your friendly neighborhood Professor Hulk, here. I’m about to drop some knowledge of some exciting stuff in the film and TV world. Now that Joker‘s sequel, Joker: Folie à Deux is official we are finding out more about the sequel including its inclusion of Harley Quinn. Lady Gaga is reportedly the choice for the role of Harley Quinn.
I’ve exclusively learned through trusted sources that the title of the film Joker: Folie à deux (Madness For Two) will have multiple meanings and interpretations. The first is the inclusion of Harley Quinn and the second will be an exploration of the relationship between Joker and what was described to me as a very “Proto Batman”.
From what I’ve been told, this version of Bruce/Batman will not wear the cape and cowl and instead will be in street clothes more or less. It’ll also be a younger version of Bruce Wayne than we’ve expected. Joker had young Bruce Wayne, but this film is set farther in the future. It’s still the young version of Bruce Wayne that hasn’t quite become Batman yet.
The film will also explore Bruce’s psyche and explore this notion that while Joker is considered insane, so is Bruce; this will also explore the fallout from the ending of Joker a lot more.
More details will undoubtedly be coming soon but until then we’ll keep you updated on this story as it develops.
So, what do you think of the new details about Joker 2?
