In the end, the recent rumors have been confirmed: the sequel to Joker , the acclaimed film starring Joaquin Phoenix , will be made.
The script is ready and it was director Todd Phillips himself who unveiled the thing on Instagram.
The title of the film is Joker: Folie à Deux , a reference to shared psychotic disorder , a rare psychiatric syndrome in which a symptom of psychosis (often a delusional, paranoid belief) is transmitted from one individual to another (hence the French name, “madness shared by two”).

It seems a reference to the last act of the 2019 film: madness has in fact now spread to Gotham and it was Arthur Fleck , who has now become the Joker and supported by a multitude of protesters dressed up as Clowns, triggered everything.
