Lady Gaga may play Harley Quinn in the sequel to the multi-award-winning Joker, in which Joaquin Phoenix will reprise his major role. According to reports, Joker 2 will be a musical.
According to reports, Gaga may play Quinn, a former Arkham Asylum doctor who has appeared in Batman-related stories as the Joker’s sidekick and love interest.
Margot Robbie portrayed the character in the 2016 film Suicide Squad, as well as its 2021 sequel The Suicide Squad. Robbie’s version of the character also had a pivotal role in the 2020 superhero picture Birds of Prey.
The plot of Joker 2 has not been revealed, but reports claim that Quinn will “exist in a different DC reality than Robbie’s Harley Quinn” – likely echoing the first Joker’s distant relationship with prior renditions of the character.
Todd Phillips, the film’s director and co-writer, shared a script cover page on social media on Wednesday, June 8 implying that the film’s subtitle is “Folie à Deux,” a reference to a psychiatric syndrome in which a delusional state is shared by two people, which could well refer to Quinn’s role in the story.
