So far, 2019's "Joker" is the most successful R-rated film of all time, with box office takings of more than $1 billion. The story of the mentally ill outsider Arthur Fleck, who becomes increasingly insane due to a number of blows of fate, is to be continued next year. This week, there was again news about the film detached from the DC Universe, which just like "The Batman" is part of the so-called Elseworlds.

The news is not so much about Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, but about his co-star Lady Gaga, who will play the second starring role in "Joker 2". There had not been any pictures of her in full costume so far, which is why the leaked images from the set made massive waves. The Harley Quinn actress can be seen on set with corresponding makeup and a red blazer. The diamond pattern that can be seen on her top, her blazer and her tights is striking and will apparently play a big role in the look of the main character. This first overall impression of the character is well received by fans and definitely makes them want to see the first official snapshots of Harley Quinn.

Likewise leaked from the set was a copy of the Gotham Examiner, on which the love story between Joker and Harley is fittingly described as "Crazy in Love". This matches "Joker: Folie à Deux", the official title of the film. It refers to a phenomenon known in psychology, in which a previously healthy person becomes infected with the mental disease of another person - in this case, the Joker infects the psychiatrist Harleen Quinzel with his madness. The outcome is well known, as Harleen Quinzel later becomes the ruthless Harley Quinn.

Last but not least, there is a third piece of news from the shooting currently taking place in New York City. On the posters of several actors demonstrating, there are references to Harvey Dent aka Two-Face, which is why the official announcement of his character should also only be a matter of time.

Filming on "Joker 2: Folie à Deux" is expected to last a few more months, as it only kicked off in March 2023. Then, fans will finally be able to watch the end result in cinemas on October 4, 2024.
