The character was portrayed by Margot Robbie in the Suicide Squad films, but Gaga’s interpretation is anticipated to “live in a distinct realm.”

In the follow-up to the multiple-award-winning Joker, Lady Gaga will play Harley Quinn, and Joaquin Phoenix will reprise the title character.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that Gaga is in line to play Quinn, the former Arkham Asylum doctor who frequently made appearances in Batman-related stories as the Joker’s love interest and sidekick. The role was played by Margot Robbie in the high-profile movies Suicide Squad in 2016 and The Suicide Squad in 2021. The protagonist in Robbie’s interpretation of the part was in the Joker sequel, Lady Gaga will portray Harley Quinn.

The Reporter claims that Quinn from Joker 2 will “live in a different DC reality than… Robbie’s Harley Quinn” despite the fact that the plot of the movie has not been made public. This statement likely refers to the first Joker’s distance from earlier iterations of the character. The movie’s subtitle, “Folie à Deux,” refers to a psychiatric illness in which two people share a delusion. This could possibly apply to Quinn’s role in the plot of the movie, according to a script cover page that director and co-writer Todd Phillips released on social media on Wednesday.
