Phillips shared the news during Warner Bros.' CinemaCon presentation while finally speaking on the reports that said this second Joker film would be a musical. He said the team never really talked about Joker: Folie à Deux being a full musical, but that music would play a big part. Furthermore, he said the movie won't "veer" too far from the original and that Joaquin Phoenix's Arthur Fleck has always had "music in him."

Probably similar to A Star Is Born, which is great news because it will be submitted to the Drama category at the Golden Globes, which is more prestigious than Comedy/Musical even if it shouldn't be the case.

Looking forward to it, I think the level of music is just to my taste. As opposed to mean girls which was really hard to watch for me. 

Also, I really don't see a Joker film winning or being nominated in the awards circuit, but I could be wrong.

Have you not seen how many nominations and awards the first movie got? It was recognised in almost all the major categories, not just acting.

The trailer kind of shows the story in two realms - the two of them in the facility/breaking out and dream sequences that mirror reality in a very stylized way. So I imagine the music to be a big part of those dream sequences, which prob feels very organic.

Whether it is or isn't a musical I'm sure they want to downplay the music aspect as much as possible because of the reception and the audience of the first movie. I wouldn't read too much into it

Joker: Folie A Deux is NOT a musical. It is a feature film with a soundtrack and 15 songs/ musical numbers, a bit like West Side Story or Singin In The Rain, where the main characters dance and sing, in tribute to some of the great musicals of the 20th Century. 

:partysick:

 

Kind regards

Not really, the songs could be playing but the characters/actors are not singing it. 

Think of how songs are used in a TV show for example, a Pharell song is playing when someone wakes up in the morning or an Adele song starts to play when romantic characters break up.
