Brendan Gleeson signs on for Joker: Folie à Deux and we’re very excited about it

September 1st, 2022 by Marc Comments

Ohhhhhhhh… some exciting casting news as we’ve learned that the Irish legend Brendan Gleeson has joined the Joker sequel.

The In Bruges and Harry Potter star is joining Joaquin Phoenix who is returning as the titular character and also Lady Gaga who will be appearing as Harley Quinn in Joker: Folie à Deux alongside also returning Zazie Beetz.

Once again, this story will be co-written and directed by Todd Phillips.

Sadly, at the minute, there’s as little known about Gleeson’s role in the movie as there is about the movie itself which is rumoured to be set in Arkham and will be, at least in part, a musical.

Personally, I could see Gleeson as Jim Gordon but, honestly, he’s so good, I’d take him in damned near any role.

Thoughts? Let me hear them.

Joker returns on October 4th, 2024 with production kicking off this December.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
