Don’t Miss The First ‘Joker 2’ Trailer With Joaquin Phoenix And Lady Gaga’s Harley Quinn

The first trailer for Joker: Folie à Deux abandoned Tuesday evening. The film is a sequel to the controversial 2019 masterpiece and looks like a properly dark and bizarre sequel to the story of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix).

This time around we also have Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn. And the trailer looks like a twisted love story. “What the world needs now is love, sweet love…”

The two end up in Arkham Asylum. Harley Quinn puts her fingers to her head and pulls the trigger, somewhat in homage to the gripping final sequence of the last film. The two men apparently hit it off quickly, then hit the road.

“I’ll tell you what’s changed,” Fleck says in the trailer. “I’m not alone anymore.”

Folie à Deux refers to a rare psychiatric disorder, also called shared psychosis or shared delusional disorder (SDD), in which symptoms of a certain type of delusional belief are passed from one person to another. It seems clear from the title that Fleck and Quinn will share their unique delusions, although in many Harley Quinn origin stories, it’s the Joker who brings out Quinn’s madness.

Here is the trailer:

The film is directed by Todd Phillips, who also directed the original film. And even though it was supposed to be a standalone film, the opportunity for a sequel starring Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn was just too juicy.

Only Phoenix’s Joker came close to matching the brilliance of Heath Ledger’s maniacal villain, and if I’m honest, I like them about equally, but they’re completely different versions of a classic comic book villain. Part of me also hopes that this turns into a trilogy, with the Joker and Batman facing each other, but not necessarily in an action-packed film like most Batman films. Maybe a psychological thriller.

Joker: Folie à Deux arrives October 4, 2024, just in time for Halloween. What do you think of the trailer? Let me know on Twitter and Facebook.
