Lady Gaga’s coming out party as Harley Quinn is finally here in our first look at Joker: Folie À Deux.
The megastar-turned-Academy Award-nominated actress will co-star alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the upcoming DC sequel to 2019’s Joker, and the new image reveal promises a bad romance.
In the preview image shared by Gaga, we see a hunger in Harley Quinn’s eyes as she faces down with Phoenix’s Joker. As just a taste of the chemistry between the two actors, it seems like we are in for a wild ride next fall. The film is currently in production.
Lady Gaga previously starred in A Star Is Born for Warner Bros., the 2018 film that dominated the award season, with Gaga receiving a Best Actress nomination and winning that night for Best Song. She later starred in Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci.
