Regarding Lady Gaga's choice to play Harley Quinn in Joker: Folie à Deux, Margot Robbie gave her opinion.
Robbie, who has appeared as Harley Quinn in three films from the DC Extended Universe, expressed her delight at Gaga's ability to personalise the role in the Joker sequel to MTV News. Robbie exclaimed, "I'm very delighted about it." "I've stated from the outset that what I want Harley Quinn to be is one of those characters that always gets transferred from great actor to great actor, you know, like Macbeth or Batman," The actor went on to say that while it is uncommon for female characters to experience that, she is happy to have laid a foundation upon which other actors can develop. "I think she'll do something fantastic with it," Robbie said in reference to Gaga in Joker: Folie à Deux.
It was revealed in August 2022 that Lady Gaga would play Harley Quinn against Joaquin Phoenix's Joker in the follow-up to the wildly popular 2019 movie. There are rumours that Joker: Folie à Deux will be almost entirely set in Arkham Asylum and may even be a musical, however precise story elements have not yet been made public. If so, Gaga will be right at home because she originally became well-known as a musician and has sold millions of records all over the world.
Will Margot Robbie Ever Again Play Harley Quinn?
In the 2016 film Suicide Squad, the 2020 film Birds of Prey, and the 2021 film The Suicide Squad, which was directed by James Gunn, Robbie played Harley Quinn. Gunn previously commented on Gaga's choice for the role of Harley, saying he was eager to see what Todd Philips will do for the sequel. Gunn stated on his Instagram story, "I once met Lady Gaga and she was incredibly sweet, so I'm always cheering for nice people to succeed.
If Robbie will resume her role as Harley Quinn in upcoming movies has not yet been made public. Robbie insisted she is prepared to reprise the role after the 2021 release of The Suicide Squad. A third Suicide Squad film has not been announced by Warner Bros., and Gunn has debunked the claim that David Ayer will not be returning to the franchise.
