According to The Hollywood Reporter and Entertainment Weekly, pop diva Lady Gaga is in discussions to appear as Harley Quinn in a sequel to 2019′s “Joker.” Joaquin Phoenix also is in talks to reprise his role as the titular character in the film, which will be a musical, sources told the entertainment outlets.

If Gaga – who won an Oscar for best original song, “Shallow,” in the 2018 film “A Star Is Born” – accepts the role, she wouldn’t be considered a replacement for Margot Robbie, who has portrayed Quinn in other DC films, both outlets reported. The “Joker” sequel’s Quinn “exists in a different universe” from Robbie’s version of the character, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The news comes less than a week after “Joker” director Todd Phillips shared an Instagram photo of a script titled “Joker: Folie à Deux.” A second image showed Phoenix looking over the script, which was written by Phillips and Scott Silver, the outlets reported.
