In June, Variety had reported that: Lady Gaga circled around the role of Harley Quinn in the upcoming Joker sequel, which is set to become a musical. On June 7, director Todd Phillips posted the screenplay cover to Instagram, revealing that the Folie a Deux is the film’s subtitle. The phrase refers to a shared delusional disorder.

Some shared their disappointment, while others welcomed Lady Gaga to the Joker franchise on Twitter. One fan wrote: “Sit and ready!” Another said, ‘Let’s go! An instant classic in the making.” Another fan wrote, “Can’t wait queen.” One fan also shared their own version of the script: “I think she’s going to do a great job. I also think she’s not going to be the Harley we’re used to seeing. I suspect they’ll meet in the asylum, a lunatic having a love affair and then embarking on a homicidal killing spree, set in the 1970s, and some twisted song and dance in between the story. I can’t wait.”

Another part of the moviegoers seemed unenthusiastic about the announcement. One Twitter user wrote, “She’ll screw it up.” Another wrote: “We don’t want you ruining what started out as a great movie. You are not a good actress and should stick to music. I’m just saying…” Another person said, “No. There are plenty of real actresses out there who would do much better.”

Previously, Margot Robbie played the character of Harley Quinn in 2016’s Suicide Squad, 2020’s Birds of Prey, and 2021’s The Suicide Squad. Todd Phillips’ original Joker became a box office phenomenon in 2019, grossing just over $ 1 billion worldwide to become the highest-grossing R-rated film in history.
