Lady Gaga Confirms ‘Joker 2’ Role Opposite Joaquin Phoenix in New Musical Teaser

Lady Gaga confirmed her casting in “Joker 2” by posting a musical teaser on social media.

The sequel, officially titled “Joker: Folie à Deux,” will star Gaga opposite Joaquin Phoenix.

Joaquin Phoenix returned to the role of Joker after winning the Oscar for best actor, thanks to his performance in the 2019 first instalment.

The teaser is set to “Cheek to Cheek,” which Gaga has famously covered in her music career alongside Tony Bennett.

Phillips’ original “Joker” became a box office phenomenon in 2019, grossing just over $1 billion worldwide

to become the highest-grossing R-rated movie in history (unadjusted for inflation).

The movie won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and earned 11 Academy Award nominations

including best picture and director. Phoenix won the Oscar, as did Hildur Guðnadóttir for the original score.
