We already know that Joker: Folie a Deux has begun production and new set photos have just revealed our first look at Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn.
The new images were shared by People which confirms that Lady Gaga has been filming her scenes for the highly anticipated Joker sequel. In the pictures, the A Star is Born actor is shown at Manhattan's City Hall, where she was joined by hundreds of extras.
Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, is shown wearing a red jacket, a black-and-white patterned blouse, a black skirt and mesh black leggings, and it effectively helps her stand out in the crowd. It's certainly an interesting spin on Harley Quinn's look and we can't wait to see more in the next few weeks.
But what scenes are Lady Gaga filming in the photos? There's a possibility that it might be part of the movie where Harley Quinn is arrested to face trial for helping Arthur Fleck commit more crimes.
Back in 2022, it was officially announced that Lady Gaga will be joining the cast of Joker 2 and it was confirmed that she will play Harley Quinn. The sequel is expected to follow Arthur Fleck as he is brought to Gotham City's Arkham Asylum where he meets Harley, a psychiatrist who eventually falls in love with him. This should pretty much explain the film's title which is French for "madness for two."
Joker: Folie a Deux is directed by Todd Phillips, who helmed the 2019 film. The sequel will bring back Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck and Zazie Beetz as Sophie Dumond. They will be joined by new cast members Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland and Harry Lawtey, whose roles are still undisclosed. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
The second Joker film is still in production and is currently scheduled for release on October 4, 2024.
