Joker 2: Photos, Cast, Plot, Release Date

At long last, we're finally getting more details about the highly anticipated "Joker" sequel, "Joker: Folie à Deux" — starting with behind-the-scenes photos from the movie's set.

On March 26, new photos of Joaquin Phoenix filming the sequel in New York City emerged, showing a glimpse of the Joker back in action. The images come a day after photos of Lady Gaga — who was officially announced as part of the cast in August 2022 — in the midst of filming appeared, seemingly confirming her rumored role as Harley Quinn. In the pictures, the "Poker Face" singer was seen wearing a red jacket over a white-and-black patterned blouse paired with a black skirt — a much more subtle costume than the one Margot Robbie wore during her time playing the character in "Birds of Prey," "Suicide Squad," and "The Suicide Squad," but still true to the DC character's comic-book roots.

It seems "Joker: Folie à Deux" is in the thick of filming, as the scene Gaga was initially spotted in appears to take place at Manhattan's City Hall with a large crowd. From the looks of the signs carried by some of the extras, people will be calling for the Joker's release after he was seemingly arrested at the end of the first movie. (The film cut to black before an arrest took place, but it appeared imminent.) Meanwhile, additional photos of Gaga in a black fur coat and Phoenix in a brown suit seem to tease another scene being shot in front of a courthouse.

Specifics about the "Joker" sequel are still scarce, but teasers have been slowly revealed in more recent weeks. On Valentine's Day, Warner Bros. shared a first-look photo of Gaga and Phoenix, who plays the titular Joker, locked in an intense embrace, giving us a small glimpse of their love story.

Gaga's involvement with the movie was first teased in June 2022. Though director Todd Phillips played coy about which role the pop star would take on, it's pretty safe to say she's starring as Harley.

"Joker" made quite a splash when it was released in 2019, drawing in a whopping $1.07 billion at the global box office and earning 12 Oscar nominations, with Phoenix taking home the best actor award and Hildur Gudnadóttir snagging a trophy for best original score.

As a result, anticipation for the sequel is understandably high. Read on for everything we know about the "Joker" sequel so far, from the rest of the cast and the release date to more behind-the-scenes photos of Gaga.
