Lady Gaga confirms she will star as Harley Quinn in Joker 2

Little monsters everywhere rejoice because Lady Gaga has confirmed she'll be starring in Joker: Folie à Deux.

The Oscar winner announced the news on Twitter, and after seeing her dazzling performance in A Star Is Born, we can't wait to see her as Harley Quinn.

Gaga will be acting opposite Joaquin Phoenix, who won a slate of awards for his initial portrayal of the scarred-faced villain in Joker.

Check out the teaser below:

Confirming the news on Twitter, Gaga wrote: "Joker: Folie à Deux 10.04.24," along with a teaser trailer for the new film.

Todd Phillips is set to direct the new film and after securing 11 Academy Award nominations for his first Joker film, it's safe to say that Gaga and Phoenix are in good hands.

While we now know more about the cast and director, little is known about the plot, but the film's title might give us some clues.

Folie à Deux translates to 'the madness of two' and the film is rumoured to be set in Arkham Asylum.

Fans of the Batman comics will know that Arkham is where the Joker and Harley first met, with Harley serving as the villain's psychotherapist.

Until she becomes entranced by the patient, probably because of his killer dance moves as seen in the first film, and winds up joining him on a rampage of madness and mayhem, that is.

And, if that wasn't enough to excite you about the new film, maybe this next detail will - it's reportedly going to be a musical.

People well and truly lost it on Twitter, with one user writing: "Congratulations Gaga!!! So proud of you we will be supporting FOREVER."

While another added: "I’m in shock I can’t believe it’s real."

A third, who we can only assume is shouting, said: "GAGA YOU BROKE THE INTERNET AGAIN YASSS WE LOVE TO SEE IT"

While another said that surely Gaga had to be helping out with the soundtrack: "After her work on Top Gun: Maverick, I wouldn’t be shocked if Lady Gaga assists with the score."

And it seems that she already is because the teaser features the song 'Cheek to Cheek,' which Gaga recorded with Tony Bennett as part of their musical collaboration. The song was originally sung by Fred Astaire.
