Joker sequel salaries REVEALED: Joaquin Phoenix gets $20M to reprise his role ... trends now

Lead stars Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga's purported salaries for the highly-anticipated Joker sequel, Joker: Folie à Deux, have been revealed in a new Variety report.

Sources tell the outlet that Phoenix is being paid $20million to reprise his role as Arthur Fleck aka Joker in follow-up to Todd Phillips' 2019 film.

He was originally paid $4.5million to play the iconic Batman villain and later won the Oscar for Best Actor.

For Lady Gaga to sign on as Joker's love interest Dr. Harleen Quinzel aka Harley Quinn, Warner Bros. reportedly splashed out $12million.

The sequel comes five years after Joker raked in $1billion at the worldwide box office despite its R rating.

Warner Bros. has reportedly spent nearly $200million on the sequel - more than double Joker's $60million production budget.  

Unlike Joker, the sequel is a musical film — a 'tricky' genre with its own box office challenges.

Most recently, Warner Bros. lost $40million with the film adaptation of The Color Purple starring Taraji P. Henson and Fantasia Barrino. It reportedly cost $100million to make.

The latest Joker 2 revelations come one week after director Phillips gave fans a look at Gaga and Phoenix as their characters in new promo stills from the film.

'Hoping your day is full of love. 10.4.24,' Phillips wrote as a caption on the Valentine's Day post for his roughly 644,000 followers.

Joker: Folie à Deux is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2024, by Warner Bros. Pictures.
