Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn next to Joker: for the moment it’s just a rumor, spread by The Hollywood Reporter, that Lady Germanotta is in talks to play the DC Comics character in Joker: Folie à deux, a sequel to the 2019 film. Sequel that could be a musical and for which the star could be hired to be part of the cast with a starring role.
To confirm the news of the Joker sequel was director Todd Phillips who, with an Instagram post, revealed the title and the protagonist: also , Joaquin Phoenix. The title, Folie à Deux, is a reference to the psychiatric disorder transmitted by one person suffering from delirium to another, specifically from Joker to Harley Quinn, a girlfriend deeply in love with the villain. The two will therefore share feeling and madness. In the past, this character has been played by Margot Robbie three times: in 2016 alongside Jared Leto in Suicide Squad, in 2020 in Birds of Prey and then the following year in The Suicide Squad. It seems, however, that in Todd Phillips sequel Harley Quinn will have different characteristics. Features that were probably found in Lady Gaga.
