There's no denying that fans are still on the fence about Lady Gaga's Joker 2 involvement but all thanks to the power of artificial intelligence, a trend that has taken the world by storm, the idea of her playing Harley Quinn in the DC Universe has won some folks over.
In case you haven't seen 'em yet, impressive Ai-generated photos of the pop star depicted as the Clown Prince of Crime's sinister siren have circulated online and understandably, fans fell for the bait, thinking they were actually set photos for the upcoming Joker: Folie à Deux.
The said images which at first glance look to be photos taken during filming see the Grammy and Oscar-winning singer/actress looking extremely sultry as Harley which isn't a surprise, given how Gaga has made a name for wearing the raunchiest outfits imaginable. We're not quite sure where the AI-generated images originated from but they do look 100% legit. Check them out below:

Details about the Joker sequel have remained scarce but according to the latest reports, the film will focus more on Gaga's Harley Quinn story more than anything else. While this particular casting may not be everyone's cup of tea, I think most people are overlooking the fact that she's a pretty good actress and I'm confident her performance will blow all of us away.
As it stands, DC Studios has yet to address where Todd Phillips' Joker universe will fall into but given the fact that James Gunn has already made it clear that Matt Reeves' The Batman franchise will continue to exist in a separate universe, chances are Joaquin Phoenix's next outing as Mistah J will remain an elseworld story.
Joker: Folie à Deux is currently slated for release on October 4, 2024.
