“Joker: Folie à Deux” will see the return of Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, aka Joker and fans are very excited for this sequel. The first look at the film was recently revealed which showed the very first look at Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix. With that being said, a new set video has recently surfaced on the internet showing Phoenix and multiple Jokers.

A new set video gave us a preview of what to expect as Joker 2 began filming in Los Angeles earlier today. In the staged video, we see Phoenix’s Joker prowling the streets and pursuing what appear to be  Jokers. It’s possible that the stand-in copycat Jokers will not appear in the final version of Joker: Folie a Deux, but it would still be cool if they do.

Phoenix will return for the Todd Phillips-directed movie, and Lady Gaga is anticipated to play Harley Quinn. Phillips has recently made headlines after his name appeared in reports indicating that Warners was looking to have him direct DC Films.

Although it hasn’t happened yet, the director did acknowledge at one point that he pitched DC executives the idea of an entire “dark” label. “When I pitched them ‘Joker,’ it wasn’t a movie, it was, let’s do a whole label,” Phillips said in 2019.


“They shut that down quickly and I get it. Who am I to walk in and start a label at a film studio? But they said, let’s do this one. Here’s the real truth about a sequel. While Joaquin and I have talked about it, and while touring the world with Warner Bros executives — going to Toronto, and Venice, and other places — of course, we’re sitting at dinner and they’re saying, ‘So, have you thought about…?’

But, talking about contracts, there’s not a contract for us to even write a sequel, we’ve never approached Joaquin to be in a sequel. Will that happen? Again, I just think the article was anticipatory at best.”

However, it remains to be seen what new twists and turns the iconic villain will take in this highly anticipated sequel. Until then keep an eye on Thirsty For News to get the latest updates regarding the film industry.
