Lady Gaga, who plays Harley Quinn alongside the Joker Joaquin Pkoenix in “Joker: Folie à deux” spoke about her character at Access Hollywood.

The highly anticipated Joker: Folie à Deux is released in 4 months. The sequel to Todd Phillips’ hit film, which won Joaquin Phoenix an Oscar, hits theaters on October 2, almost 5 years to the day after Joker.

In this musical sequel with a budget of 150 million dollars, Joaquin Phoenix shares the bill with singer and actress Lady Gaga who plays Harley Quinn. In promotion for the theatrical release of the film of his Chromatica Ball concert, the interpreter of “Bad Romance” mentioned Joker: Folie à deux on the microphone of the site Access Hollywood.

“You know, this is my own version of Harley. It’s very authentic and fits this movie and these particular characters. I’ve never done anything like this before, it will be something completely new and very amusing.”

Lady Gaga’s Harley Quinn should therefore be very different from that of Margot Robbie who played the Joker’s companion in Suicide Squad in 2016, the spin-off Birds of Prey in 2020, and in the new part of The Suicide Squad (2021 ).

The first images of Joker 2 bear witness to this: Gaga’s look appears darker – like the film – and less colorful and sparkling than Robbie’s.

Asked by Variety when promoting Barbie, Margot Robbie said she was very excited to discover Lady Gaga’s work: “She’s going to rock! She’s going to be incredible. I actually haven’t told her about it. I’d almost rather not know so I can be surprised when I see the movie.”

A musical film?

Nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress for A Star Is Born in 2019, Lady Gaga should once again sing the song in a film since Joker: Folie à deux must include several musical stages.

On the other hand, it should not be a musical as previously announced. Last February, during a masterclass, cinematographer Lawrence Sher declared: “There is music, but it is not strictly speaking a musical film. The music is part of the film and the characters, but I don’t know if it’s a musical. But there is music, as there was a lot of in the first Joker. And there are things that we weren’t able to do in this film and which, by extension, are part of the DNA of the sequel.

In Joker: Folie à deux, Arthur Fleck, the clown prince of crime, is no longer alone. Here he is drawn into a madness for two with his great love, Harley Quinn. More than ever, the world is a comedy. Zazie Beetz will reprise her role as Sophie, while Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland, Harry Lawtey, Gattlin Griffith and Troy Metclaf join the cast in previously undisclosed roles.

Joker: Folie à deux releases in our theaters on October 2.
