Todd Phillips gives DC fans a Christmas present by releasing brand new photos of Joker: Folie à Deux with Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga.
“Wishing everyone a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year,” Phillips shared on Instagram alongside the two photos.
Phoenix reprises his role as the Joker he brought to life in the 2018 film. Lady Gaga joins the sequel as Harley Quinn. In the first photo, Phoenix’s Joker is imprisoned, while the second photo shows Gaga’s Harley Quinn looking at the Joker, who is wearing her signature makeup.
Joker: Folie à Deux is scheduled to be released on October 4, 2024.
The sequel’s cast also includes Catherine Keener, Brendan Gleeson and Zazie Beetz.
Joker: Folie à Deux is part of DC Elseworlds and is not part of the universe that Peter Safran and James Gunn have been building since taking the helm of DC Studios.
Lady Gaga will play Harley Quinn, played by Margot Robbie in films like Suicide squad (2016), Birds of prey (2020) and The suicide squad (2021). Robbie expressed his joy that the character of Harley Quinn continues to live on.
“It makes me so happy because I said from the beginning that all I wanted was for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters, in the same way that Macbeth or Batman always goes from great actor to great actor,” Robbie told MTV News in 2022.
She continued, “It’s such an honor to have built a strong enough foundation that Harley can now be one of those characters that other actors can try to play. I think she’ll do something incredible with that.
