The sequel to 'Joker' (2019) is set to be a musical, with the confirmed title: 'Joker: Folie à Deux.'

'Folie à Deux' references a delusion or mental illness shared by two people, which could suggest the chaotic and often insane relationship between Joker and his love interest, Harley Quinn.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gaga's version of the infamous anti-hero will exist in a different universe than actor Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn. Robbie played Harley in 'Suicide Squad' (2016), 'Birds of Prey' (2020), and 'The Suicide Squad' (2020).

Although many details of the film are yet to be confirmed, Todd Phillips, who directed the first 'Joker' film, teased the sequel via a post on Instagram.
