‘The Witches’ and ‘Moonshot’ Among Six Warner Bros. Exclusives Pulled From HBO Max

It’s been a depressing 24 hours for many DC fans with the news that Warner Brothers Discovery wouldn’t be releasing Batgirl. However, for those DC fans looking for any kind of good news, the release date for Joker: Folie A Deux has been revealed. Reported exclusively by Deadline, the sequel to the mega hit comic book film will be hitting theaters on October 4, 2024. This means that Joker 2 will be released on the five-year anniversary of the first film.

This makes all the sense in the world as Joker absolutely destroyed the box office when it was released in October 2019. It had a killer opening weekend at $94 million and from there the Joker’s reign only grew. The film would end its run grossing over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. While Joker felt like a one off when it released, money always talks and the sequel quickly entered development.

There’s still not much known about the plot of the upcoming sequel, but director Todd Phillips and star Joaquin Phoenix are returning for the film.

In addition to that, as previously reported, it has been rumored that WB is eyeing Lady Gaga for their version of Harley Quinn. In that same report it was also indicated, in a bizarre twist, that the film would be a musical. This caught many fans by surprise given the dark rated-R crime drama nature of the first film. This hasn’t been officially confirmed yet by WB themselves, but Joker has been many things over the years. He has been a foolish clown, a ruthless killer, and on occasion he has been known to sing.
