Joker: Folie à Deux is the highly-anticipated sequel to 2019’s Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix. Joining Phoenix’s Clown Prince of Crime is Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, who has finally been spotted on set for the film.
Fans of Harley Quinn and Lady Gaga alike have been waiting for any sort of look at her take on the character since director Todd Phillips revealed a photo of Harley and Arthur together on Valentine’s Day. While that was only a close-up shot, we finally have our first look at Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn:
The more lowkey look that Lady Gaga is sporting for the film may be a bit of a shock to fans of both her and Harley Quinn, as both of them tend to dress much more extravagantly. However, other recent set photos have revealed that Phoenix will once again don his iconic red and yellow suit, at least in some form. It’s likely that Lady Gaga getting her own iconic costume will only be a matter of time.
What can audiences expect from the Joker sequel?
After the first film ended with Arthur Fleck in Arkham State Hospital, it’s likely that – as in previous iterations – Harleen Quinzel will start out as the Joker’s psychiatrist. Plot details are being kept under wraps but the a significant chunk of the sequel is expected to take place in Arkham.
Todd Phillips is directing Joker: Folie à Deux from a script he co-wrote alongside Scott Silver, who also worked on the original. Production is currently underway for an October 2024 release.
The cast of Folie à Deux also features Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beetz, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland and Harry Lawtey.
The first Joker movie is currently available on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD and digital formats. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the sequel and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
