Joker Star Explains Why Her Character Wasn't k*lled
 

 
image

"Actor Zazie Beetz, who played Sophie Dumond in the 2019 hit Joker, claimed she never believed her character would die at the hands of Arthur Fleck.

"In my mind, she lives because she never actively wronged Arthur," Beetz said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "His victims in the film were generally people that pointedly hurt him. Even within the horror of his realization around his own state of mind, he acknowledges that she's more of a bystander to his situation than an actor to his situation. So she makes it out unscathed, at least physically."

Sophie was a single mother who lived on the same apartment floor as Penny Fleck and her son Arthur, whom Sophie met during a brief elevator ride. Though their first interaction was short-lived, Arthur soon began to harbor an unhealthy obsession with Sophie, as seen when he stalked her during her morning commute to her workplace. As he became increasingly unstable throughout the events of Joker, Arthur started to hallucinate scenarios wherein she offered him emotional support, despite how the real Sophie wasn't even sure of his name. When Arthur realized his relationship with her was a fabrication, it likely contributed to his transformation into the Joker.

While it remains unclear if Beetz will revisit her character in a future project, director Todd Phillips confirmed actor Joaquin Phoenix will be returning to play the role of Arthur in the upcoming sequel musical film. In a post to social media, Phillips claimed Phoenix was already in possession of the script for the next entry for Joker, which the director additionally revealed was given the working title Joker: Folie ŗ Deux. The official Instagram account for Joker also announced Phoenix will be joined by singer Stefani Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, who will be playing Joker's beloved partner in crime Harley Quinn.

An industry insider previously claimed Folie ŗ Deux will take place in Arkham State Hospital, which was the movie's take on the DC Comics' notorious Elizabeth Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane. Further details regarding Joker: Folie ŗ Deux's storyline and cast members remain scarce, as the film is still in development and reportedly scheduled for production in December 2022.

Joker: Folie ņ Deux waltzes into theaters on Oct. 4, 2024."

‘Joker 2’: Zazie Beetz in Talks to Return for Sequel




"Zazie Beetz is in talks to reprise her Joker role in the Warner Bros. and DC sequel Joker: Folie ŗ Deux. The Todd Phillips directed movie, which is set to start shooting in December, is slated to hit theaters Oct. 4, 2024.

The Emmy Award nominee would be returning as her character Sophie Dumond from the highly-regarded 2019 film Joker, per Deadline. Sophie is the single mom struggling to make a life in Gotham City, living next door to Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) and saddled with the unfortunate luck of being the subject of her neighbor’s romantic delusions. Lady Gaga also announced on social media recently that she is joining the cast of Joker: Folie ŗ Deux, which is rumored to be a musical. Hollywood is abuzz as the Oscar winner is slated to play the Joker’s girlfriend, Harley Quinn alongside Phoenix who will also be reprising his role.

Philips is returning to direct Joker: Folie ŗ Deux, which reports say will likely take place in the infamous Arkham Asylum. Although plot details are still under wraps, the title gives its audience a hint as to what the sequel will be all about. Folie ņ Deux is a French phrase that can be best said in English as “shared madness by two people in close a*sociation,” which alludes to the film following a similar plot as the comics. The sequel will continue to follow the newest iteration of the well-known DC villain, who was portrayed by Phoenix, an aspiring stand-up comedian amid an ongoing downward spiral in the 2019 film. Joker quickly garnered massive success and high acclaim as well as a cult-like following after hitting theaters, and it eventually won two Oscars for Best Original Score and Phoenix as Best Actor. The first Joker is also the highest grossing R-rated movie ever with $1.07 billion at the global box office.

Beetz starred most recently in Bullet Train opposite Brad Pitt, which was this past weekend’s No. 1 box office film and made over $60M worldwide. She also recently received a nomination for Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at the Primetime Emmys for her performance in the third season of the Donald Glover helmed FX series Atlanta. With the fourth and final season of the fan-favorite series premiering in September, her time as Van is coming to an end as Atlanta comes to a close. Fans can also see her in an episode of the highly-anticipated sixth season of Black Mirror, which she told Deadline just finished shooting.

No poster or trailer has been revealed for the Joker: Folie ŗ Deux sequel yet, but the award-winning 2019 film Joker is currently available to stream on HBO Max."

Wanted to slap because the skin thing is fu*ked up but.... Then I thought about all (?) two (?) of the facial expressions Tessa Thompson can muster. Its fu*ked up but you aren't even wrong...

Other than by fu*king directors like Taika Waititi IDK how the hell she keeps getting roles.
