Lady Gaga in Joker: Folie à Deux.

The world was first introduced to Lady Gaga acting in FX’s gruesome television hit, "American Horror Story." She then went on to star in "A Star is Born", "House of Gucci", and now, "Joker: Folie à Deux".

Folie à Deux is a French term for “madness of two.” It is also frequently used in English to denote this specific type of schizophrenia and refers to a shared mental illness between two people.

The icon herself was spotted filming scenes on the same staircase used from “Joker” that links Shakespeare and Anderson avenues at West 167th Street in the Bronx; as well as the New York County Supreme Courthouse in lower Manhattan. Gaga was seen wearing a domino pattern top with a red blazer and leggings. The look wouldn’t be complete without the smudged lipstick and eyeliner.

Joaquin Phoenix will reprise his role as Arthur Fleck who was a wannabe comedian that struggles with mental health issues. Lady Gaga will step into the role of DC’s Harley Quinn. The movie is allegedly going to be a musical and take place primarily in Arkham asylum, where Harley Quinn and Joker are certain to get romantically involved. The concept following the Joker and Harley’s relationship is abuse. More unlike the physical aspect it is predicted based on how Joker has dark undertones it will focus on the mental and emotional aspects of their relationship.

With the vocal talents of Gaga there is no doubt that this movie will be another smash hit at the box office.

The film wrapped on April 5th as the director Todd Phillips shared images of Gaga and Phoenix in character. Phillips expressed his kudos to the stars and to his crew as he stated “the best crew the film industry has to offer from top to bottom.”

The Warner Bros. sequel is set to release in October 2024.
