Lady Gaga is in talks to play Harley Quinn in DC's Joker 2 movie starring Joaquin Phoenix.

Warner Bros. and DC Films went in a surprising direction a few years ago by announcing plans for a Joker solo movie that did not involve Jared Leto's version of the character from Suicide Squad.

The Joker movie instead brought Phoenix into the leading role and is not part of the DC Extended Universe. Directed by Todd Phillips, Joker made over $1 billion worldwide and earned Phoenix an Oscar win for his incredible performance.

Now, it appears that Harley Quinn will be in Joker 2 and could be played by Lady Gaga. According to the report from THR, Gaga is in talks to play Joker's long-time comic book love interest.

Margot Robbie currently plays Harley in the DCEU, but now Gaga will have the opportunity to play the role in Joker 2 if a deal makes.

Gaga's Harley casting also comes with the news that the sequel is meant to be a musical.

I Call True: First off I was somewhat dubious about it being a musical, more like it will have musical elements although I can imagine The Joker snapping and his world turning into a musical to deal with issues.

I'm keeping an open mind and would LOVE to see Gaga as Harley

Can't argue with the casting but a musical? Oof! That'll be a hard sell for sure.

She would be superb, the characters that she has played in some of her music videos play into her being a fantastic Harley if she goes for it

We know the second film is coming https://bit.ly/3NS0zc0 anything other than that is speculation at the moment, but with the working title of Joker 2 being Folie รก Deux (literally meaning "madness of two") this sounds likely
