The Batman franchise has numerous unique, exciting, and bizarre villains.  Many have been portrayed on-screen by multiple actors, taking on completely different styles depending on the director. For example, Danny DeVito's performance as Penguin in Tim Burton's 'Batman Returns' (1992) is very different to Colin Farrell's Penguin in the 2022 reboot! 

Joaquin Phoenix's take on the Joker is also vastly different from that of Heath Ledger's or Jared Leto's, but we're soon going to be treated to more of the Oscar-winning psychodramatic take on the villain. Director Todd Phillips confirmed the sequel to the 2019 film on Instagram on June 7, with a photo of the cover of the script, written by Phillips and Scott Silver, which has the title 'Joker: Folie à Deux.' He also shared a photo of Phoenix reading the screenplay, proving that the wheels are rolling.

And now there's more news: Lady Gaga is in talks to join the film, and it'll reportedly be a musical!
