The highly anticipated sequel to the 2019 blockbuster film “Joker” has been the subject of much speculation and excitement among fans of the comic book genre. One of the most talked-about aspects of the upcoming film is the addition of Lady Gaga to the cast, who will be playing the iconic character of Harley Quinn.
New behind-the-scenes photos have emerged, giving us a glimpse of Lady Gaga filming new material on the set of Joker 2.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Gaga’s Harley Quinn. Director Todd Phillips had previously shared the first full look at her character on his Instagram page back in February.
But these new behind-the-scenes photos give us a different perspective on the character. In this scene, we see Harley in a more subdued outfit, blending into the crowd instead of standing out in her flamboyant attire. This could hint at a different approach to the character in Joker 2, with a focus on the psychology and backstory of Harley, rather than just her flashy exterior.
Harley Quinn has been a fan-favorite character ever since her debut in Batman: The Animated Series in 1992. She has since become a staple in the Batman universe, with her complex personality and unpredictable behavior making her a fascinating character to explore. Margot Robbie famously portrayed Harley in 2016’s Suicide Squad and will reprise the role in the upcoming The Suicide Squad.
With Lady Gaga’s impressive acting chops and her unique flair, there’s no doubt that she’ll bring her own spin to the character of Harley Quinn. And with Todd Phillips at the helm of Joker 2, there’s sure to be plenty of surprises in store for fans of the first film.
Joker: Folie a Deux is set to be released in late 2022, and with these new behind-the-scenes photos, anticipation for the film is sure to grow even more. Fans will be eager to see what Lady Gaga brings to the table as Harley Quinn and how her character will fit into the already complex and fascinating world of the Joker.
