Lady Gaga Appears To Confirm Casting In 'Joker' Sequel




PARIS, France - Pop star and actress Lady Gaga appeared to confirm her casting in the upcoming motion picture sequel to the Oscar - winning psychological thriller 'Joker' on Thursday by posting a musical teaser on Twitter.


The musical clip depicts silhouettes dancing together to the une of the song 'Cheek to Cheek', originally written by Irving Berlin in 1935 for the Fred Astair and Ginger Rogers movie Top Hat, with the names Phoenix ana Gaga flashing on the screen.


'Joker: Folie a Deux', which will see Joaquin Phoenix reprise his role as the titular character, is set to release in theatres on Oc.4, 2024.


Phoenix had first played the role in the 2019 film 'Joker', which earned him the Academy Award for best actor, depicting an origin story for the enemy of DC Comics' superhero Batman.


No further details about the sequel have been immediately made available by Warner Bros. But Hollywood trade publication Variety has reported the new production will be a musical with Lady Gaga expected to play Joker's co - conspirator, Harley Quinn.


If confirmed, Lady Gaga will be the newest in a long line of actresses who have played or voiced the iconic character of Harley Quinn. Most recently, Margot Robbie played the role of the 'Crime Queen of Gotham City' in the 2020 film 'Birds of Prey' and in 'The Suicide Squad' the following year.


It is unclear if Robbie will continue as Harley Quinn. However, the Joker movies featuring Phoenix are set in a separate cinematic universe, which would likely mean Robbie can still reprise her role as the iconic villain in any future movies.


Folie a deux is a rare psychiatric syndrome also known as shared psychosis, likely hinting at the traditionally co - dependent relationship between Joker and Harley Queen.
