The news regarding the report that Joker 2: Folie à Deux is set to be a jukebox musical has spawned polarizing reactions among fans.

While some of them were curious about how the film would handle the unique concept, there were also fans who felt discouraged and concerned about whether they would be able to successfully handle the tone.

Here are some of the reaction posts from fans on X:

No mainstream comic book film has ever gone full-on musical so it is curious to see how the sequel will handle the concept.

It is also interesting to see whether there will be influences from classic films of the genre just like how the first one was influenced by '70s cinema, particularly Martin Scorsese's earlier works.

Perhaps the concerns will be shot down once the trailer releases where fans will get their very first look at the film's jukebox musical style.

For now, fans should wait and see for more details on the film as we are now just a few months away from its release.

Joker 2: Folie à Deux is set to arrive in theaters this October 4.
