Fans are going “gaga” over the first look at Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn in Joker: Folie à deux (Joker 2), which director Todd Phillips finally showed off. Joaquin Phoenix won the Academy Award for his role as Arthur Fleck, the main character and one of DC Comics’ most complicated bad guys. He’ll be back as the Joker, but all the talk has been about Gaga, and fans can’t wait to see her. Scroll down to see what the fans thought.
For those who don’t know, the Phoenix-led movie came out in 2019, and with all the changes going on in the DC universe, this will be a part of the DC Elseworlds franchise. We have already seen the talented Margot Robbie play this famous comic book character in The Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey, so we can’t wait to see what she does in A Star is Born.
On Valentine’s Day, Joker 2 director Todd Phillips dropped a bomb on fans by posting the first look at Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn on his Instagram account. Phillips shared a picture of Harley and her boyfriend, Joker. They look like they’re having a close moment. Gaga’s eyes show a lot of passion, while Phoenix keeps her cool. He wrote “Happy Valentine’s Day” under the picture.

Last year, Todd Phillips released the first look at Joaquin Phoenix. It was said that Lady Gaga would join the shoot a little late because fans wanted to see her character in the movie, and now it’s here. Folie à deux is set to come out in theatres on October 4, 2024.
