In a post on his Instagram account, Todd also praised the cast and crew for their work on set. "That’s a wrap. Thanks to these two (+ the entire cast) and the BEST crew that the film industry has to offer," he wrote. "From top to bottom. Gonna crawl into a cave now (edit room) and put it all together."

What's the Joker sequel about?

It was uncertain whether this dark drama would even be granted a sequel, given the slight controversies that surrounded its release (some audiences questioned the moral implications of celebrating violence in such a way.) Though, with a $1 billion return at the box office, it was inevitable.

Major plot details are still under wraps, but a few things have come to light. The film is said to be taking place mostly in Arkham Asylum, and will be... wait for it... a musical.

Yes, you read that right! Though it's unclear to what extent the musical elements will lead the film's narrative, this twist in format has certainly thrown all expectations out of the water.

The title itself, Folie à Deux, is a French phrase which means "delusion or mental illness shared by two people in close association". This suggests that The Joker will be finding a partnership in madness with another character, and given that the film will take place in Arkham Asylum (the setting in which he canonically meets his beloved Dr Harleen Quinzel), we can't help but think that maybe Harley Quinn might be stopping by.

According to reports, the film will have "complicated musical sequences", and will work on a budget of roughly $150 million. Sounds pretty unmissable.

What is the release date for Joker: Folie à Deux?

Five years on from the first film, we can't wait any longer for the sequel.

Now, we don't have to as Joker: Folie à Deux is set to be released in cinemas on 4th October, 2024.
