Todd Phillips, the director of Joker: Folie à Deux, gave fans their first look at Lady Gaga in costume on Instagram. It was obviously for Valentine's Day. The 2019 movie Joker, which made $1 billion worldwide and won the best actor Oscar for Joaquin Phoenix, is rumoured to star Lady Gaga as DC icon Harley Quinn.
The movie, which Scott Silver and Phillips co-wrote, is directed by Phillips once more. Phillips offered glimpses of Phoenix throughout the first Joker, a practise he continued on December 10 when he posted a picture of his star on Instagram to announce that filming had begun.
It is now being filmed in New York and Los Angeles in preparation for its October 4, 2024, Warner Bros. release date. On A Star Is Born, which Phillips produced, Gaga previously collaborated with him.
The R-rated picture The first Joker became one of the highest-grossing DC movies ever after becoming a surprise blockbuster. It follows Arthur Fleck, a wannabe clown and comedian whose mental health problems send him into a tailspin after getting rejected repeatedly. He eventually adopts the Joker character and rises to fame. The title of the sequel, Folie à Deux, is a play on a medical term for a mental condition that affects two or more people, usually close family members.
The Joker sequel comes out as DC is going through a period of change, with newly minted DC Studios bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran working on a number of projects for film, television, animation, and video games that will all be set in the same shared universe. Only a select few projects, like Joker or Matt Reeves' The Batman sequel, will be marketed as DC Elseworlds titles, an acronym for the parallel universe stories depicted in comic books.
Last month, Safran stated that the bar for projects that go beyond the DCU, the "Elseworlds projects," will be quite high. But occasionally, something will come along that matches that.
