Rumors suggest that Lady Gaga will take on the role of Joker’s most notorious love interest, Harley Quinn.
With Todd Phillip’s story of the Joker being a separate entity from the DC film universe, Margot Robbie should still be expected to play Quinn in future films in the DC extended universe.

Lady Gaga has already proven she has the acting chops to belong in huge roles after her successful roles in A Star Is Born and House of Gucci.
The Joker sequel will have big shoes to fill after the first film’s success, which included Joaquin Phoenix bringing home the Academy Award for Best Actor in 2019.
