The film “Joker”, where Joaquin Phoenix played the future enemy of Batman, a role which had earned him the Oscar for best actor, was initially planned to remain unique. But its enormous success will finally earn it a sequel, again directed by Todd Phillips, who announced it on Instagram.
“Joker”, Joaquin Phoenix, august clown
Lady Gaga will play Harley Quinn
Under the title “Joker: madness for two” (in French in the text), this sequel will welcome alongside Joaquin Phoenix – who takes over the title role – another star, Lady Gaga. The latter revealed that she will play Harley Quinn. The ex-psy who fell in love with the Joker was previously interpreted by Margot Robbie between 2016 and 2021 in “Suicide Squad”, “Birds of Prey” and “The Suicide Squad”.

According to the American news site The Verge, the film will include more musical elements than the first, which would make Lady Gaga’s choice logical.
Production is due to begin next December, reports the online newspaper Deadline.
