Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn? Yes please! If recent reports are to be believed, we could see the Oscar winner playing the DC character in Joker 2. A new report has stated that Gaga is in talks to star in Joker 2 with Joaquin Phoenix. As if that wasn’t enough to get fans excited, it’s also been reported that Joker 2 will be a musical.
Joker was released in 2019, far from typical superhero movies in recent years. Director Todd Phillips, starring Phoenix in the titular role, was a psychological thriller rather than picking on the tried-and-tested superhero movie format, and it worked wonders at the box office. Not only did it do big at the box office, the Joker also won several awards including an Academy Award.
Last year, it was reported that Joker 2 was in the pipeline. Now, The Hollywood Reporter has shared more details about the sequel. The report indicates that Warner Bros. has contacted Lady Gaga with Harley Quinn, but the details remain confidential. DC fans are already aware that Joker and Harley share an on-and-off relationship through the comics. She was glimpsed in Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey, with Margot Robbie setting the standard as Harley Quinn.
It’s unclear if Phillips and his cohorts are using other DC characters or striking alone, as they did in many cases with their first movie. If a deal is struck, Gaga will play Quinn. However, this new Queen is in a different world. About DC from Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, which recently appeared in 2021’s The Suicide Squad as well as many other films,” the report states. The publication added that the filmmakers are looking forward to a musical sequel.
While fans await confirmation of Gaga’s inclusion in the film, Phillips hinted that the script for the film is already ready. Taking to Instagram, he shared an image with the title – Joker: Folie à deux and Phoenix reading the script. The scene left fans excited.
