Joker: Folie à Deux adds a Maze Runner star.

Maze Runner star Jacob Lofland just joined the upcoming Joker: Folie à Deux.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 26-year-old actor has joined the Joker sequel in an unknown role, but is thought to be playing a key supporting role as an Arkham Asylum inmate and friend of Arthur Fleck (aka The Joker).

Lofland is known for the role of Aris in Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials as well as its sequel, Maze Runner: The Death Cure.

Joker 2 stars Joaquin Phoenix returning to the role of Arthur Fleck/The Joker. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga has been cast in the upcoming sequel, with many reporting that she has landed the role of his iconic lover, Harley Quinn. Additionally, Harry Potter star Brendan Gleeson has joined in an unknown role.

At the moment, little is known about the plot of Joker 2, except that it’s widely thought to have a musical aspect. Whether this will be a result of the titular Folie à Deux – a mental condition shared by two or more people – remains to be seen.

Joker was released back in 2019 and told an alternate origin of sorts for Batman’s iconic nemesis. IGN’s Joker review gave the film 10/10 and said: “Joker isn’t just an awesome comic book movie, it’s an awesome movie, period. It offers no easy answers to the unsettling questions it raises about a cruel society in decline. Joaquin Phoenix’s fully committed performance and Todd Phillips’ masterful albeit loose reinvention of the DC source material make Joker a film that should leave comic book fans and non-fans alike disturbed and moved in all the right ways.”

Its placement outside of the main DCEU means that it’s difficult to predict whether or not any of these new castings will portray known DC figures, or whether they’re cast in entirely new roles. Either way, it looks as though Joker 2 is shaping up to be quite an interesting sequel.

Joker: Folie à Deux sees director Todd Phillips return to the helm, also co-writing the script alongside Scott Silver, who wrote the first film.
