Joker 2 director teases trailer release with new Lady Gaga images

The sequel to Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker (2019), starring Lady Gaga as the Clown Prince of Crime’s right hand woman Harley Quinn, has yet to release a trailer – but Joker 2 director Todd Phillips has given fans a glimmer of hope with new set photos.

“Hoping your day is full of love,” Phillips wrote on Instagram below a carousel of Gaga and Phoenix as Harley and the Joker.

In all three photos, the pair look, to quote Beyoncé, very dangerously in love. The second snap appears to have been taken in the infamous Arkham Asylum, where Dr. Harleen Quinzel falls in love with the Joker, marking the first step on her path to becoming Harley Quinn.

The photos aren’t the only Valentine’s Day treat Phillips had for fans, though. As well as confirming the film’s release date – 4 October 2024 – he also responded to the query of when the internet could expect a trailer for Joker 2.
