Lady Gaga in talks to play Harley Quinn in ‘Joker 2’

This is no joke: Lady Gaga is in talks to join joker 2.

Like Harley Quinn.

According to The Hollywood ReporterWould Gaga “Play Harley Quinn” If She Makes A Deal To Make The Movie — Which Is also apparently a musical.

Last week, joker director Todd Phillips confirmed that the long-rumored project was making progress with an Instagram post of the script for the film, titled joker: Madness for twoa reference to a medical condition involving “an identical or similar mental disorder that affects two or more individuals, usually members of the same family.” If the Joker is involved, Harley Quinn would be the only character who would canonically share a mental disorder.

THR writes that “it is unclear whether Phillips and the company are using other DC characters or just attacking, as in many cases with their first film.”

The DC Extended Universe already has its own Harley Quinn, Margot Robbie, who played the Joker’s girlfriend in suicide squadBirds of prey and The suicide squad. But joker doesn’t take place in the same DC Comics universe as those movies; the first film, starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker, was set in the past and showed a man named Arthur Fleck who slowly becomes a man and takes on the identity of the Joker and the people of Gotham City in dark and terrifying ways inspires.

Despite the fact that the film didn’t feature a Batman (at least not an adult Batman; a young Bruce Wayne had a small cameo role), joker was a dizzying hit for Warner Bros., grossing $1.07 billion worldwide. Phoenix won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal and has repeatedly said he would be interested in reprising the role. But opposite Lady Gaga in a musical? I don’t think anyone saw that coming.
