Last week, we wrote about writer and director Todd Philips teasing a sequel to his Joker movie, and well, it looks like there is already new news about Joker 2 (aka, Joker: Folie à Deux).

Philips initially shared a photo on his Instagram account that features, what looks to be, the cover for a script; said cover includes the title Joker: Folie à Deux. There is also another photo that features actor Joaquin Phoenix reading said script. You can find these photos below:

In new news related to Joker: Folie à Deux, pop star Lady Gaga is in talks to not only perform alongside Joaquin Phoenix in Joker 2, but the film is reportedly a musical! These two new updates are super interesting – a comic book related musical sounds real fascinating. In the first Joker movie, Joaquin Phoenix’s character displays an enjoyment for dance, so one can sort of connect the dots as to why a musical format might make sense for Joker 2.

Regarding the possible inclusion of Lady Gaga – we are all for it. As to what her role would be, well, one immediate assumption comes to mind… Harley Quinn.

If you have been following the DC movies for some time now, you already know that Philips’ Joker is not connected to the universe of the other movies. So while we think Margot Robbie is an incredible Harley Quinn, we would love to see Lady Gaga take on the role as well (if that is who she is playing of course).

What do you make of this news? Are you interested in seeing a Joker musical? What do you think of the possibility that Lady Gaga could play Harley Quinn?

At the time of this writing, there is no clear idea as to what the plot of this movie might involve, when Philips would even start shooting this movie, or when it might even come out.
