FIRST LOOK: Lady Gaga shows off Harley Quinn outfit for Joker sequel

March 25th, 2023 by Marc Comments

We learned some time ago that Lady Gaga was set to play Harley Quinn opposite Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker in Todd Phillips’ Joker sequel Folie à Deux, and today we have our first look at how she will appear in the movie and it’s different but it’s pretty cool and we reckon this is a look we’ll see as iconic as Margot Robbie’s Suicide Squad look.

The new look, above, was taken on the set of the now-filming DC movie and features Gaga wearing he familiar red and black diamond design we associate with Harley and the pale face and dark eye combo; truth be told, we like it. A lot.

Zazie Beetz likely to return for Joker sequel

Of course, this isn’t the first look at her in the role we have gotten as we got this look a few weeks ago:

But it is the first look we have at the costume she’ll be wearing in the musical sequel.

Peter Safran, who is currently overseeing the direction of the DC Universe (DCU) on film along with James Gunn recently spoke about how Joker – and other movies – fit into the wider DC Universe since it’s not connected to the main line of movies: “The DCU, as we can see it, is a multiverse. But we’re going to be focusing on one universe within that multiverse. We’ll incorporate, as I said, some of the actors and characters from the past but mostly we’re going to cast new.

Brendan Gleeson joins Joker sequel cast! Yes!

“Now if something is not DCU – if it’s blatantly adult like Todd Phillips’ ‘Joker’ or Matt Reeves’ ‘Batman’ or ‘Teen Titans Go,’ those properties we’re going to label clearly as DC Elseworlds just like the comics do. We’re going to be very clear. The bar is going to be very high for projects that are going to be outside the DCU, the Elseworlds projects, but every now and again, there’ll be something that lives up to that. And we’ll make that film or television series.”

We’re excited about the future of DC and we’re very excited about this sequel.

Thoughts? You know I want them all…

Joker: Folie à Deux arrives on October 4th, 2024.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
