Joker: Folie À Deux director Todd Phillips has shared a first look at Joaquin Phoenix in the sequel – take a look below.
Phillips took to Instagram yesterday (December 11) to share the very first still from the film, which sees Phoenix as Fleck having his neck shaved by another person out of shot.
“Day 1. Our boy,” Phillips wrote. Take a look at the post here:
Joker: Folie À Deux is set to be released in October 4, 2024, and alongside Phoenix as Fleck, Lady Gaga is set to play a new iteration of Harley Quinn.
Margot Robbie, who has played Harley Quinn across three DC films, said Gaga’s casting “makes me so happy”.
“It makes me so happy because I said from the very beginning, all I want is for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters, the way like Macbeth or Batman always gets passed from great actor to great actor,” she recently said.
Zazie Beetz is currently in talks to reprise her role as Sophie Dumond, while Industry star Harry Lawtey and The Banshees Of Inisherin star Brendan Gleeson are also starring in the forthcoming film in undisclosed roles.
