A new set video from Joker: Folie à Deux shows Lady Gaga’s Harley Quinn sealing a Joker protestor’s fate with a kiss.
Michal Blank shared the video on Instagram, featuring Gaga’s Harleen Quinzel ascending the steps of what appears to be a Gotham City courthouse surrounded by a mixed crowd of Joker supporters and detractors. On her way, Quinzel is accosted by a woman holding a newspaper and saying, “You are going to hell.” In response, Quinzel approaches the woman, kisses her and supposedly replies, “You’re coming with me.”
Photos from this courthouse scene leaked online in March, providing additional story details. One such image offered a closer look at the copy of the Gotham Examiner newspaper the woman in the scene is holding, which features a picture of Arthur Fleck from his talk show appearance in the first film with Harley’s Arkham State Hospital mugshot and the headline “Crazy In Love.” Other photos and videos from the same set showed protestors holding signs saying, “Free Joker” and “Dent Is A Clown,” hinting at Harvey Dent/Two-Face’s potential involvement in the upcoming sequel.
Harley Quinn’s Musical Moments Revealed
Additional set material has teased some of Gaga’s key moments in Joker 2. A video taken outside the Arkham Asylum set captures Gaga singing “That’s Entertainment,” a classic tune from the 1953 musical film The Band Wagon. Another video taken at the iconic staircase from the first Joker teases another musical number from Gaga, in which she appears to sing either “That’s Entertainment” or “Be a Clown.” The latter is from the 1948 musical film The Pirate.
Director and co-writer Todd Phillips recently revealed that Joker 2 has completed filming in a social media post that included shots of Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix in full clown makeup. “That’s a wrap,” he wrote. “Thanks to these two (+ the entire cast) and the BEST crew that the film industry has to offer. From top to bottom. Gonna crawl into a cave now (edit room) and put it all together.” Principal photography on Joker 2 began back in December 2022.
Joker 2 is still more than a year away from movie screens, but fans are already debating who is the better Harley Quinn between Gaga and her predecessor, Margot Robbie. In October 2022, Robbie expressed her excitement about seeing Gaga take over the role. “It makes me so happy,” she stated. “I said from the very beginning all I want is for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters the way Macbeth or Batman always gets passed, you know, from great actor to great actor. I think she’ll do something incredible with it.”
Joker: Folie à Deux opens in theaters on Oct. 4, 2024.
