Gaga and Phillips, who previously directed Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, also known as the Joker, in 2019’s ‘Joker,’ have been teasing fans with images and sneak peeks of the sequel for several months. Phillips recently treated fans to new images of the duo on Instagram in February, coinciding with Valentine’s Day.

Phoenix is set to reprise his iconic role as the Joker in the sequel, slated for release exactly five years after the original Joker hit theatres in 2019. Meanwhile, Gaga is expected to portray Dr. Harleen Quinzel, better known as Harley Quinn, a character famously portrayed by Margot Robbie in various DC Studios movies.
