In June, much speculation started floating that Lady Gaga was in talks to star in a musical sequel to The Joker. On 4 August, Gaga uploaded a short clip to Twitter with the song Cheek To Cheek playing as the words “Phoenix” and “Gaga” appeared on the screen.
As well as confirming her casting in the film, this post also lets us know that we have a painful wait to see the sequel, with a release date set for 4 October 2024.

While this clip doesn’t confirm who Gaga will be portraying, many have speculated that she will be taking on the role of Joker’s love-interest, Harley Quinn. I’m a big fan of Margot Robbie’s portrayal of the character in Suicide Squad and Birds Of Prey, but if the rumours are true, I can’t wait to see Gaga’s take on this iconic villain.
