Two years later, the pop sensation offered herself a fresh on-screen role in House Of Gucci alongside Adam Driver in 2021. It was also rumored in September 2020 that it would be the new Queen Blanche (aka Emma Frost) from the X-Men storyline. However, the information has not been verified.
Joker: Two-Film Madness will also include Zazie Beetz as Sophie Dumond, Brendan Gleeson, and Catherine Keener, in addition to Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga. This sequel is set to hit theaters in the United States on October 4, 2024.
Huge triumph in 2019, the first installment of Joker, directed by Todd Phillips (Very Bad Trip), garnered approximately 1.07 billion dollars at the global box office before winning two Oscars (for 11 nominations): best actor for Joaquin Phoenix and best music for Hildur Gunadóttir.
