Joker: Folie à Deux Plot

Directed and written by Todd Phillips, the sequel is expected to pick up where the original movie ended. Although the official plot has not yet been released, the movie will follow Arthur Fleck, a marginalized rent-a-clown and aspiring stand-up comedian who grapples with a mental disorder causing uncontrollable laughter. After enduring bullying, losing his mother, and financial hardship, he turns to violence. The first film concludes with him in the Arkham Asylum, where it’s hinted that he might have killed a therapist.

In the next chapter, it is speculated Arthur will be under the care of Harley Quinn, potentially leading to a tumultuous relationship where she becomes his willing accomplice. Their toxic dynamic will likely lead to Harley’s spiral into darkness, navigating perilous situations alongside the Joker.
