Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix are confirmed actors for Joker 2.
The singer and actress Lady Gaga has confirmed her participation in the sequel to the film Joker. It was only a few hours ago that the singer, who is in the middle of the Chromatica Tour, published a small teaser for the film, officially titled Joker: Folie a Deux. Gaga was rumored as an actress of Harlye Quinn a few months ago, so she will be co-starring with Joaquin Phoenix, who returns in the role of Joker after winning the Oscar for best actor thanks to his performance in the 2019 film.
The teaser uses the song “Cheek to Cheek”, with which Lady Gaga made a well-known version with Tony Bennett. To the rumors of the incorporation of the actress were added those who indicated that the sequel would become a musical. At the moment, only the participation of the singer is official along with the subtitle of the film, Folie à Deux, which the new director Todd Phillips announced last June along with the cover of the script.

For the more curious, Folie à Deux hints at a shared delusional disorder, and Joker’s only real partner aside from Batman has always been Quinn, a character who debuted in Batman: The Animated Series in the early 1990s. .
The sequel to Joker will arrive five years later
Joker: Folie à Deux will be released on October 4, 2024That is, five years after the film that grossed over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office and garnered 11 Oscar nominations, winning two (Best Actor and Best Soundtrack). Of course, although Lady Gaga plays Harley Quinn, her character will differ in quantity from Margot Robbie, which we have seen in The Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey (and the fantabulous emancipation of Harley Quinn).
