Joker 2 Trailer Date Confirmed, Featuring Joaquin Phoenix And Lady Gaga

Warner Bros. has just revealed the first official poster for " Joker : Folie à Deux," showcasing Joaquin Phoenix 's Joker alongside Lady Gaga 's Harley Quinn, suggesting a formidable pairing as they don clown makeup and dance.

“The world is a stage,” reads the tagline atop the poster, which depicts Phoenix holding a lit cigarette while dipping Gaga low as they dance illuminated by a spotlight.
Warner Bros. announced that a trailer is slated to drop next Tuesday, April 9.

Director Todd Phillips , who helmed Phoenix's portrayal of Arthur Fleck, aka the Joker, in 2019's "Joker," along with Gaga, has been teasing fans with images and glimpses of the sequel for months. Phillips recently shared fresh snapshots of the leading duo on Instagram in February, coinciding with Valentine’s Day.

Variety reports that Gaga and Phoenix are set to lend their vocals to at least 15 songs, including classics like "That’s Entertainment" from Judy Garland's revered musical "The Band Wagon."

Insiders also suggest that Gaga will pen and perform two original songs, potentially positioning them as strong contenders for the 2025 Academy Awards. Notably, Hildur Guonadottir will return as composer, vowing to innovate within the musical genre.

Though details about the songwriters and performers remain undisclosed, sources hint that Guonadottir, an Oscar and Grammy winner, will infuse her distinctive and haunting cues into the movie. Drawing inspiration from successful jukebox musicals like " Mamma Mia " and " Moulin Rouge ," which garnered eight Oscar nominations, director Todd Phillips, known for his audacious filmmaking style, is anticipated to chart new territories in the upcoming DC film.

While specifics of the plot for "Joker: Folie à Deux" are shrouded in secrecy, it's known that much of the story unfolds within the infamous Arkham Asylum. The narrative is expected to delve into the love story between Arthur Fleck and Dr. Harleen Quinzel, also known as Harley Quinn. Alongside Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix, the DC movie features a cast including Zazie Beetz , Catherine Keener, and Brendan Gleeson. "Joker 2" is scheduled to hit theatres on October 4th.
