Lady Gaga’s first look as Harley Quinn in Joker 2 has been unveiled! Director Todd Phillips has shared a new look from ‘Joker: Folie A Deux’, posting an image depicting star Joaquin Phoenix in the arms of Lady Gaga. “Happy Valentines Day,” reads Phillips’ brief caption on Instagram. Gaga also shared the image through her own social media presence. She is reportedly playing a version of the DC Comics character Harley Quinn, a psychiatrist who finds herself smitten with the Joker before taking on his villainous ways.
Margot Robbie had previously portrayed Quinn in the ‘Suicide Squad’ films and ‘Birds of Prey’. Kaley Cuoco voices the character on the ongoing HBO Max animated series ‘Harley Quinn.’ Gaga confirmed her involvement with the ‘Joker’ sequel last August. The film has been described as a musical.
Fans reaction to Lady Gaga’s look
As soon as Todd Philips shared the post on his social media, it got loaded with hearts and loveable comments. A fan wrote, “The queen”. Another added, “Oscar just for that picture.” A comment read, “BRO JUST DELIVERED A EARTH SHATTERING PHOTO AND PRETENDED AS IF WE’RE SUPPOSED TO JUST LOOK PAST IT. ” Another comment read, “This was very much needed.”
Meanwhile, Phillips’ original ‘Joker’ was a critical and commercial smash in 2019, becoming the highest-grossing R-rated film in history. It won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and was a major competitor at the year’s Academy Awards, earning 11 nominations and wins for Phoenix in best actor and Hildur Guonadottir for best original score.
The dramatic success of ‘Joker’ quickly spurred speculation regarding a sequel. Although the landscape of DC media has shifted in the years since the original film, Phillips’ project has remained largely untouched by the newly formed DC Studios and its co-chiefs James Gunn and Peter Safran. The ‘Joker’ sequel will not play a role in the narrative continuity of other upcoming DC films.
