Lady Gaga is ready for her closeup in the DCU — she was on set this weekend for the new ‘Joker 2’ movie … and she’s looking pretty clownish as Mr. J’s right-hand girl.
The singer and a ton of extras were on hand Saturday morning in NYC, where director Todd Phillips and co. were shooting a scene for the forthcoming sequel to 2019’s ‘Joker.’ As you may have heard by now, Gaga signed on to portray Harley Quinn … and here she is.
Indeed … LG could be seen in her full costume and makeup as the Clown Prince of Gotham’s famed love interest, and in these shots — she’s coming down some courthouse steps amid what appears to be a massive (staged) protest … with “Gotham City” cops everywhere.
From the looks of it … Gaga’s Harley is very much like Joaquin Phoenix‘s Joker — namely, quite realistic and not so cartoon-y … unlike other depictions of the characters in DC films.
Of course, with Gaga’s version of HQ now out … the comparisons between her take and Margot Robbie‘s iteration are going to start flying in film circles. MR has been playing Harley Quinn for a while now (3 films, actually) … and her portrayal has been well-received.
Based on what we can glean from these photos (and this vibe), however, something tells us Gaga’s Harley might, perhaps, be a little darker … and maybe even a little less giggly.
Time will tell … we’ll just have to wait and see when the flick comes out in Oct. 2024.
BTW, one last observation … the very many background actors working today appear to have had their grievances heard when it comes to bathroom breaks. As we reported … a lot of the extras were pissed they were having to work long hours without getting a chance to whizz.
Peep all the porta potties lining the streets … as the actors walk by. There’s more than enough stalls for everyone to empty their bladders … and one guy even exercised his right!
When you gotta go, you gotta go.
