Many have appreciated the first chapter of Joker, released in 2019. The motion picture film was very detached from the DC universe that you have come to know and focuses all the energies on making you understand. how Jack Napier became the Joker. This decision proved successful and allowed the film to gross billions of dollars at the box office.
A short time ago, however, confirmation arrived that there will also be Joker 2, the direct sequel to the first film. We do not know much about what the plot of the film will be, but we do know that Todd Phillips will return as directoras well as Joaquin Phoenix will return to play the role of the Joker.
Given the subtitle of Joker 2: Folie à Deux, it is easy to understand that there will be an adaptation of Harley Quinn, the lover of the criminal. And with the film heading towards the start of production, it appears that this theory has found a background of truth. Some reports in fact not only confirm the presence of Harley Quinn in Joker 2, but they also give a name on the likely actress: Lady Gaga. In fact, it looks like the sequel could have a genre change and move to the musical.
The Web site The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Lady Gaga is in talks to land the role of Harley Quinn and then work alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the sequel. Obviously we do not know if the agreement between Warner Bros and the pop singer is final, in fact it seems that they are still negotiating. Although it must be said that if Lady Gaga joined the cast, it would be a great way to attract people who have never been interested in cinecomics. Moreover, it would be a completely different film from those where we have seen the actress and singer, such as A Star Is Born, a film produced by Todd Phillips himself. Only time will tell what’s on the director’s mind and if Lady Gaga will really join the cast.
