The first poster of ‘Joker 2’ has been unveiled, giving an official look at Joaquin Phoenix’s DC villain and Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn.

The first official poster for Joker: Folie à Deux movie has been unveiled by Warner Bros, and it seems that Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker has met his fierce match in Lady Gaga’s Harley Quinn as the villainous duo dances wearing clown makeup.

“The world is a stage,” the poster’s tagline reads just above an image of Phoenix – holding a burning cigarette in his hand – dipping Gaga low as they dance under a bright spotlight. The post from Warner Bros also revealed that a trailer is set to release next Tuesday on April 9.

Gaga and Joker 2 director Todd Phillips, who directed Phoenix, 49, as Arthur Fleck, aka the Joker, in 2019’s Joker, have been teasing images and first looks from the sequel for months. Phillips most recently shared new images of the leading duo to Instagram in February on the occasion of Valentine’s Day.

According to reports from Variety, Gaga and Phoenix will lend their vocal to at least 15 songs, including classics like That’s Entertainment from Judy Garland’s iconic musical The Band Wagon.

Additionally, insiders hint that two original songs will be penned and performed by Gaga, which could become a strong contender for the Academy Awards in 2025. Interestingly, Hildur Guonadottir is returning as a composer, who promises to push the boundaries of the musical genre.

While specific details about the songwriters and performers for the tracks remain a mystery, sources suggest that Hildur, the Oscar and Grammy-winning composer, will “infuse her distinctive, haunting (music) cues” to the movie. Inspired by the successful jukebox musicals like Mamma Mia and Moulin Rouge, which earned eight Oscar nominations, director Todd Phillips, known for his bold and unconventional filmmaking style, is expected to break new ground in the upcoming DC film.

While the plot details of Joker: Folie a Deux remain under wraps, it’s known that the film will mostly take place in the infamous Arkham Asylum. The story is said to focus on the love story between Arthur Fleck and Dr Harleen Quinzel aka Harley Quinn. Other than Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix, the cast of the DC movie includes Zazie Beetz, Catherine Keener and Brendan Gleeson. Joker 2 is set to hit theatres on October 4.
