JOKER over $1 billion worldwide and earned 12 Oscar nominations — including for best picture, best director for Phillips, and best-adapted screenplay for Phillips and Scott Silver. Phoenix won the Oscar for best actor.

I loved the film, but I’ve never been keen on a sequel because I feel that one would take away one of the main things about JOKER that made it so great: The ambiguity of whether Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck imagined the whole thing in his head.  Hopefully, Phillips and company can prove me wrong.

“Folie à Deux” literally translates as “shared madness.”  I won’t speculate what the subtitle means in terms of the sequel’s plot/storyline, but feel free to discuss that in the comments section below. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
