Lady Gaga Reportedly in Early Talks for Joker Sequel

It’s only been a week since the announcement was made that Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker would be getting a sequel, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Lady Gaga is in early talks to join the cast.

The Hollywood Reporter states, “sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Warners has yet to close a deal with the actor, with the two sides deep into it.”

Another detail about this sequel is that sources told THR it will be a musical. Lady Gaga is a well-known singer and has already shown her combined musical and acting talents in A Star Is Born, which won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2019.

Todd Phillips, who is directing the Joker sequel, also worked as a producer on A Star Is Born.  

There are no details on her potential character, but given her looks, there’s a strong chance she takes the role of Harley Quinn. In DC comics, Joker and Harley share a volatile and abusive relationship under the doctor-patient dynamic.

Harley is a psychiatrist in Arkham Asylum who eventually falls in love with Joker, and they team up to become a dangerous criminal duo.

It certainly is an interesting idea to make the sequel a musical, but after seeing what Phillips and Phoenix did with the first movie, I am very excited to see where this could go.
