New photos of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker and Lady Gaga's Harley Quinn are giving fans 'chills'

Joker: Folie à Deux director Todd Phillips shared a few Valentine’s Day special images featuring Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga on his Instagram. Phillips shared a total of three images depicting the demented romance between Joker and Harley Quinn. Fans are very excited to see the pair, especially after Phoenix’s performance in the previous film and Gaga’s addition after her impressive roles in A Star is Born and House of Gucci.
Phillips confirmed the release date of the film as October 4, 2024. Interestingly, the critical reception of the first film, Joker, was polarizing, but audiences were more accepting of the film. It went on to gross $1.079 billion at the global box office.
Todd Phillips shared new images of Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga from Joker: Folie à Deux on Valentine’s Day, with the caption, “Hoping your day is full of love.” (via Instagram). In one of the photos, Phoenix’s Joker is seen in his classic burgundy suit and clown makeup alongside Gaga’s Harley Quinn, who’s wearing a floral top and heavy blue eye makeup. In another black-and-white shot, the two are seen rubbing noses, and Phoenix’s character appears to be in a jail cell.
The third image is a wider black-and-white shot of the two dancing on a rooftop in Gotham City. Phoenix wears a black tuxedo, while Gaga dons a long white wedding gown. Fans were hyped for the film when the photos were shared all over social media. Some fans took to X to comment on their new favorite demented pair this Valentine’s Day.
The top comment had to be the one that described Phoenix’s film as “The La La Land of our darkest timeline.” For another fan, the photos were already giving them the chills. One fan, who was initially not on board with a Joker sequel, appeared to have changed his mind. Another fan suggested that Harley Quinn’s descent into madness in Joker 2 will be similar to that of Selma’s in the musical melodrama Dancer in the Dark. Some fan reactions read:
The La La Land of our darkest timeline.

Didn't hit me till these images but Harley Quinn descend into madness in a similar way to Dancer in the Dark would be dope.

Phillips once again pens the story of the film along with co-writer Scott Silver. The film drew inspiration from Martin Scorsese films like Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy. For his performance in the first film, Joaquin Phoenix received the Best Actor Award at the 92nd Academy Awards.
The title of the Joker sequel refers to a medical term for a mental disorder that affects two or more individuals. While fans expect a psychological thriller from Todd Phillips, there have been hints that the new movie will be a musical love story between Arthur Fleck and Dr. Harleen Quinzel. The new photos from Phillips also suggest the possibility of a musical film.
Lady Gaga’s Dr. Quinzel is assigned to treat Fleck, but her curiosity for the nihilistic personality eventually turns into obsession. While mental health and disorders are prominent themes in the sequel as well, it is notable that the first film received widespread criticism for its handling of the subject. Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, and Steve Coogan have been cast in new roles, while Zazie Beetz reprises her role from the first film.
Joker is now available for streaming on Max and Netflix.
