Lady Gaga Confirms Role In Joker: Folie à Deux In Musical Teaser

Yesterday Todd Phillips and Warner Bros. Pictures announced the release date of Joker: Folie à Deux. The sequel to the very successful Joker sequel starring Joaquin Phoenix. Today we got another treat.  A sort of teaser trailer released by Todd Phillips and surprise… surprise… Lady Gaga. Which finally confirms her part in this film that is being called a musical. Check out the clip below!

Notice anything special about the teaster? Besides the fact that it literally says “GAGA” on it. It is also set to the music of “Cheek to Cheek”. A song that Lady Gaga covered alongside Tony Bennett. It had been reported back in June that Warner Bros. has been looking to cast her in the role of Harley Quinn. Around the same time, Phillips posted a cover of the screenplay which revealed the name, Joker: Folie à Deux. As well as an image of Phonix taking a look at it.

The title “Folie à Deux”, refers to a shared delusional disorder. The only female companion that comes to mind, is Harley Quinn. It is important to note that the teaser does not confirm that Gaga is playing Harley. She could be just a character “inspired by” or someone different altogether. But Harley has been a powerhouse for DC, to the point that Jim Lee had called her one of the pillars of the DC Universe along with Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Which then would make sense why she could be included here.


The first Joker film became a huge box office hit in 2019. It grossed over $1 billion worldwide to become the highest-grossing R-rated film in history. It also won the Golden Lion at the prestigious Venice Film Festival. Not to mention winning two Academy Awards. One for best actor and the other for original score. Overall it had 11 nominations.

Joker: Folie à Deux is scheduled to be released in theaters on October 4, 2024. You can check out the first Joker film on HBO Max.
