Steve Coogan Hints at “Interesting Scene” With Joker in the Upcoming Film

Steve Coogan Teases A Very Interesting Scene With Joker in the Upcoming Movie

Originally conceived as a standalone film without sequels, ‘Joker’ (2019) was intended to inaugurate DC Black, a series of darker and more experimental films distinct from the DC Extended Universe. Despite this, director Todd Phillips expressed interest in a sequel.

By November 2019, the sequel was officially 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.

The cast of the upcoming ‘Joker’ is set, with Joaquin Phoenix portraying Arthur Fleck, also known as The Joker, a mentally troubled criminal with a clown-inspired persona. Lady Gaga takes on the role of Harleen Quinzel, aka Harley Quinn, an asylum inmate who becomes fixated on Arthur. Zazie Beetz plays Sophie Dumond, Arthur’s former neighbor, and a single mother. Leigh Gill and Sharon Washington reprise their roles, while Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland, Steve Coogan, Ken Leung, and Harry Lawtey have also been cast in undisclosed roles.

Speaking to Deadline on the red carpet of the BAFTA TV Awards, Coogan teased an intriguing scene with the Clown Prince of Gotham.

“I’m in it. I have a very interesting scene with Joaquin Phoenix. I play of sort of a CNN-type reporter that interviews him in his cell. But beyond that, I don’t know. I’ve not seen it, so I’m as in the dark as anyone else.”

‘Folie à Deux’ is characterized as a drama set in and around Arkham Asylum, although official plot details have not yet been disclosed. Additionally, the movie has been confirmed to be a musical. ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ is scheduled to debut in the United States on October 4, 2024, distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
