Joker 2 will hit theaters on October 4, 2024, precisely five years after the first film opened in 2019. Joker traced the origin of the Clown Prince of Crime. He is one of the most famous comic-book supervillain and the arch-nemesis of Batman. The movie directed by Todd Phillips (The Hangover) introduced Phoenix as Arthur Fleck the Clown Prince of Crime. The actor won the Oscar for his performance in the noir drama. The movie grossed over $1 billion internationally, inspiring Warner Bros. to greenlight a second film. Unlike the dark and gritty Joker, the sequel Joker: Folie a Deux is being created as a musical.
