A new report suggests that Lady Gaga will be joining Joaquin Phoenix in Joker: Folie à deux as Harley Quinn.

Speculation had been high that Harley Quinn would included in the film when the title was announced as Joker: Folie à deux. The title refers is a medical term for when two people share a similar medical diagnosis. And if you ever think of a counterpart to Joker, it’s almost always going to be Harley.
