Brendan Gleeson comes the new season of the series “Estado de União” (2022). He also starred in the series “Mr. Mercedes” (2017-2019) and is remembered to this day for the role of MadEye in the “Harry Potter” franchise.

What to expect from “Joker: Folie à Deux”?
The title of the film indicates a little of the story that will be portrayed: “Folie à deux” is a rare syndrome in which two or more people share a psychotic disorder. It is worth remembering that, in the comics “Mad Love” from 1994, harlequin studied psychology and met joker, when he was committed to Arkham Asylum. She was one of the local psychiatrists.
In his first appearances in “Batman: The Animated Series”, harlequin was totally devoted to joker. The relationship between the two characters is abusive and toxic, which should be explored in the film.
Million Dollar Contract! Lady Gaga should make a fortune with “Joker: Folie à Deux”
Lady Gaga signed a contract to do “Joker: Folie à Deux”the new movie “Joker” with Joaquin Phoenix. For this, the singer and actress will win a hefty sum. In comparative terms, “A Star is Born” (2018), the biggest hit of Gaga in theaters to date, has made $436.2 million at the box office. The film won her an Oscar for best original song, as well as an album and a No. 1 single on the international charts. According to Forbes, Gaga received between US$ 5 million and US$ 10 million to make “A Star Is Born”.
The picture today is different. Variety has already reported that Warner will pay for Joaquin Phoenix a fee five times higher than in the first film. He will receive $20 million. As a co-protagonist, and also with an Oscar on the bill, Lady Gaga must not have received a proposal much lower than that.
