Things We Noticed In The Official Joker: Folie à Deux Trailer

We have a feeling Lady Gaga will be giving this role her ALL. You have to when your co-star is an Oscar winner for their performance. It was in 2019 that Joaquin Phoenix won Best Actor for Joker.

Lady Gaga plays the new version of Harley Quinn in Joker: Folie à Deux – and this time around – but it won’t necessarily be a full on musical. We thought it was interesting when we googled what Folie a Deux actually MEANS:

fo·lie à deux

/ˌfälē ä ˈdə,fōˌlē ä ˈdə/


  1. delusion or mental illness shared by two people in close association.”a classic case of folie à deux”

The trailer shows them meeting and falling in love in Arkham Asylum before apparently escaping and forming a musical duo

Director Todd Phillips said it isn’t a musical, as had been rumoured, but that music is “an essential element”.

In one clip, they perform as Joker & Harley on a TV show, complete with full band and backing singers.

The trailer plays What the World Needs Now Is Love, made famous in 1965 by Jackie DeShannon
