See Lady Gaga go full clown as Harley Quinn in new Joker: Folie à Deux photos

Lady Gaga is the queen of chaos in the first official photo of the Oscar winner in makeup as Harley Quinn in Joker: Folie à Deux.

Director Todd Phillips shared a photo of the House of Gucci and A Star Is Born actress in her supervillain costume as well as a shot of Joaquin Phoenix as the titular character on Wednesday to celebrate the end of filming of the Joker sequel. He wrote: "That's a wrap. Thanks to these two (+ the entire cast) and the BEST crew that the film industry has to offer. From top to bottom. Gonna crawl into a cave now (edit room) and put it all together."

Gaga boarded the DC Comics and Warner Bros. film in 2022. The (reportedly musically tinged) continuation of the 2019 film won Phoenix his first Oscar for Best Actor at the 2020 Academy Awards.

Shots previously surfaced of Gaga filming a wild scene for the film in New York City dressed in full Harley Quinn gear, but Phillips' post is the first official look at the superstar as Harley.
