Todd Philips, the director of Joker, disclosed a sequel through his Instagram. The director posted two pictures. Likewise, the first photo displays the title of the movie; Joker: Folie à Deux. Additionally, the second revealed Joaquin Phoenix, the actor in the Joker reading script.

What does Folie à Deux Mean?

Folie à Deux is a French word. Its literal meaning is “madness shared by two.” The illness is called SDD, meaning “shared delusional disorder” or “shared psychosis.” This mental condition happens between two people who pass on the same delusional beliefs. Hence, it can be guessed that Joker and Harley will share this disorder.
