In 2020, Warner Bros considered Jim Carrey to portray the older version of Joker in the sequel to the 2019 blockbuster.

The way that their plot will pan out is to show Auther Fleck as a mere inspiration to Mr.J. He will not be the one who will become Batman’s archenemy. The sequel will show different versions of the characters spanning different generations as the Joker will become an icon.

Jim Carrey is eyeing to play an older version of the iconic DC villain and not the villain himself. His role will be of someone inspired by the deranged clown.

There is no official release date for Joker 2 yet, but the director has revealed the project is in the works. Judging by the release date of the first Joker film, which landed a year after the script had been written, fans can expect Joker 2 to land sometime in 2023.
