Joker will be available on the Prime Video app starting Monday, April 20. The movie was released in only English-language audio, so it is unlikely that we will see a dub for the movie. However, Amazon has created dubs from scratch for movies before, like with another Oscar-winning movie Parasite. We could see the app do the same with Joker.
