    Joker was one of the best iterations of the titular character in the Warner Bros. DC universe. The film is an origin story for Arthur Fleck as he spirals into craziness and transforms into the criminal mastermind that sparks an anarchist revolution resulting in the death of Martha and Thomas Wayne in the early 1980s. 

    Todd Phillips took it to his social media to share the exciting news of the perpetuation of the world of Clown Prince Of Crime. He shared the front page of the script which flashed the title ‘Joker Folie à Deux.’ He has co-written the film with Scott Silver. In the second slide, we meet the man himself, Joaquin Phoenix reading the script with a lit cigarette. Folie à Deux, the title is inspired by a mental disorder that two delusional people share.
