What’s Joker without a little bit of Gaga...
The 36-year-old actress and musician, Lady Gaga is set to star alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the upcoming musical sequel to 2019's Joker.
No details were provided about her role. But PEOPLE confirmed, back in June, that Gaga had been in talks to play Harley Quinn in a musical sequel. She confirmed her casting for “Joker: Folie à Deux” on social media Thursday, posting an animated musical teaser, which revealed that the new film is slated to be released October 4,
The Hollywood Reporter was the first to share the news, reporting that Gaga's Harley would exist "in a different DC universe" than the one played by Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad (2016), Birds of Prey (2020) and The Suicide Squad (2020).
