Lady Gaga, world-renowned pop star, and Golden Globe-winning actress, might be our next Harley Quinn in The Joker Sequel. The Joker is back, and he’s bringing a pal with him. Lady Gaga is in early talks to appear alongside Joaquin Phoenix in filmmaker Todd Phillips’ sequel to Joker, the $1 billion Warner Bros. hit based on the DC character that won an Oscar in 2019.

Phillips has been co-writing the script with Joker co-writer Scott Silver for a while now, and the studio has finally seen it. Phillips announced the title of the new movie on social media last week, Joker: Folie à deux, a medical term meaning an identical or comparable mental condition that affects two or more people, usually members of the same family. While Phoenix read the script in the same social media post, his involvement isn’t precisely legal. According to The Hollywood Reporter, there is a search for a female counterpart to Phoenix in The Joker Sequel. Joker remains the highest-grossing R-Rated movie of all time.

Lady Gaga Might Just Be Our Next Harley Quinn In The Joker Sequel

Here comes Lady Gaga. Her character’s identity in The Joker Sequel is under wraps. Nevertheless, it’s no surprise that Joker has an on-again, off-again abusive relationship with Harley Quinn. She’s his psychiatrist at Arkham Asylum, who falls in love with him and becomes his sidekick and partner in crime. It’s unclear whether Phillips and the team are employing additional DC characters or going alone, as they did in many instances with their first film.

Gaga would play Quinn in The Joker Sequel if a deal comes to a close. This new Quinn, on the other hand, exists in a distinct DC universe from Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. Robbie’s Harley Quinn was most recently seen in 2021’s The Suicide Squad as well as a number of other films.

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta is an American singer, songwriter, and actress best known for her role as Lady Gaga. Her image makeovers and musical diversity have made her famous. Gaga started singing at open mic nights and participating in school plays when she was a teenager. Before leaving out to pursue a career in music, she studied at Collaborative Arts Project 21 at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing after her contract with Def Jam Recordings was terminated, and in 2007 she signed a joint agreement with Interscope Records and Akon’s label, KonLive Distribution.

The Fame, Gaga’s debut studio album, and its chart-topping singles “Just Dance” and “Poker Face,” catapulted her to fame the following year. 
The Fame Monster EP (2009), which included the hit singles “Bad Romance,” “Telephone,” and “Alejandro,” underwent repackaging with the album. She’s also an accomplished actress. Lady Gaga starred in the highly acclaimed musical drama film A Star Is Born and the miniseries American Horror Story: Hotel (2015–2016). She won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress (2018) for the latter. That’ll give comic book fans some assurance that Gaga is experienced enough for The Joker Sequel.
Gaga became the first woman to win an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Grammy Award in the same year. Her contributions to the former’s soundtrack yielded the chart-topping single “Shallow.” With her sixth studio album, Chromatica (2020), Gaga returned to her dance-pop roots. She gave us the number-one hit “Rain on Me.” In 2021, she released Love for Sale, her second joint album with Bennett. She also starred in the biographical crime film, House of Gucci.
