Joker 2 Finally Delivers What Batman Fans Are Craving: ‘Brief Full Nudity’


“Joker 2” will focus on the doomed romance between Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and his psychiatrist, Dr. Harleen Quinzel, the woman destined to become Harley Quinn, played in the film by none other than Lady Gaga. With this in mind, the “some sexuality” classification makes sense. But it’s the “brief full nudity” that will probably give people pause. WHO Are you getting naked here? Harley? Jester? Mr. Frozen? Will Todd Phillips finally give us what we’ve been longing to see: the Joker’s penis? Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe a completely secondary character gets naked in the background of a scene. We’ll have to wait and see.

“Joker: Folie à Deux” is also a musical, and full nudity is not something you see in many musicals, so I take my hat off to you, Todd Phillips. I guess. Anyway, in addition to Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga, “Joker 2” also stars Zazie Beetz, Steve Coogan, Brendan Gleeson and Catherine Keener. The film’s trailer will be released on April 9, giving us our first real look at what Phillips and company have cooked up here. I know the discourse surrounding the first “Joker” reached almost hysterical levels, but I’m really excited to see all the nonsense that awaits the sequel. One question remains: will this film be as big a success as the first? It has a sizable budget, so that remains to be seen.

“Joker: Folie à Deux” sings, dances and strips in theaters October 4, 2024.
