Official Audio Released for Joker Folie a Deux Ahead of First Trailer

The movie ‘Joker’ (2019) was initially intended as a standalone film without sequels. However, Warner Bros. had plans for it to kickstart DC Black, a series of darker, more experimental films separate from the DC Extended Universe. Director Todd Phillips expressed interest in a sequel despite the original plan. By November 2019, the sequel was confirmed to be in development. In 2023, Gunn confirmed that ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ would not be part of the mainline DCU; instead, it would be released under the ‘Elseworlds’ label, aligning with Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’ franchise.

Early in development, it was revealed that ‘Joker 2’ would be a musical, which garnered mixed reactions from fans. Recently, it’s been reported that the movie will feature around 15 covers of well-known songs, including ‘That’s Entertainment’ from the 1953 musical ‘The Band Wagon’, famously associated with Judy Garland. There’s also talk of including original songs. Details about the composers and singers remain unknown, but sources suggest Hildur Guðnadóttir, the Oscar-winning composer of the first ‘Joker’ film, will bring her distinctive style to each number. Warner Bros. has not commented on this.

We just found out that the first trailer for the show will debut on April 9th during the special Warner Bros. presentation at CinemaCon. Before the trailer premieres, the official audio has been released, and you can listen to it below.

‘Folie à Deux’ is described as a drama set in and around Arkham Asylum, but official plot details haven’t been confirmed yet. The cast features Joaquin Phoenix, Lady Gaga, Zazie Beetz, Catherine Keener, and Brendan Gleeson. The screenplay was co-written by Todd Phillips and Scott Silver.
