In addition to the new cast, the film’s title, “Joker: Folie à Deux”, was also revealed. As the Joker, Joaquin Phoenix returns to the franchise after winning the Academy Award for Best Actor for his impressive performance in the 2019 installment. Louis Armstrong’s Cheek to Cheek, which Gaga previously performed with jazz great Tony Bennett, serves as the soundtrack for the film’s trailer. According to sources, the upcoming film will be a musical, so Gaga’s choice seems ideal for the role.
The teaser also announced the film’s release date. The premiere of the film will be on October 4, 2024. Although Gaga’s role in the franchise has been confirmed, it is still unknown if she will play Harley Quinn in the highly anticipated sequel.
On Twitter, the majority of fans were ecstatic when it was revealed that Gaga would be working with Phoenix on the project, while many others expressed distaste for the idea of a musical.
