Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn in Joker 2 Beats Fancastings
Lady Gaga reportedly in talks to play Harley Quinn opposite Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker in Joker 2, it’s clear that she would be a perfect choice. Lady Gaga is in talks to play Harley Quinn in Joker 2, and she is actually a perfect choice for the role on practically every level. After the announcement of Joker 2’s working title — Joker: Folie á Deux — it was suspected that the upcoming sequel may feature the Joker’s main love interest, Harley Quinn. Though Margot Robbie delivers an unforgettable turn as the character in the DCEU, for Todd Phillips’s sequel, it’s being reported that Lady Gaga is in talks to play the role opposite Joaquin Phoenix.
Though Lady Gaga secured her fame through her music career, her switch to acting has so far been incredibly successful. After her role in the TV series American Horror Story: Hotel, she was able to land a starring role in the musical romantic drama remake A Star Is Born in 2018. More recently, Gaga starred in the biographical crime drama House of Gucci as Patrizia Reggiani. Gaga’s screen presence and acting talent have been widely praised, which undoubtedly contributed to Phillips’ desire to cast her in the Joker sequel. With Lady Gaga in talks to play Harley Quinn in Joker 2, it has become apparent that she would be an exceptional choice for the role. Though the character has long been fancast to include such actors as Tilda Swinton, Winona Ryder, Ariana DeBose, and Cate Blanchett, Gaga is the most perfect fit for the character. Though her acting experience is limited, her career credits contain perfect proof that she’d actually be an exceptional addition to Joker 2’s cast, especially as the film is tipped to be a musical.
The best evidence that Gaga is a perfect choice to play Harley Quinn opposite Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker lies in her previous acting credits. Lady Gaga’s status as a movie star cannot be denied even after only a short time working as an actor, and her role in American Horror Story: Hotel proves that she can play a complex and nuanced villain. A Star Is Born showed that Gaga has the dramatic chops to hold her own alongside an actor of Phoenix’s caliber, not to mention that she can use her singing talent to enhance a musical movie. What’s more, Gaga is renowned for her eccentricity. In her stylistic choices and even her sporadic acting projects to date, there is proof that she can perfectly embody a character as chaotic and mesmerizing as Harley Quinn. Gaga also possesses exactly the right qualities as a performer to set her version of the character apart from Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, which is to date the most well-known movie iteration. This would help Gaga come off more favorably in any inevitable comparisons between the two. Ultimately, it’s easy to imagine Lady Gaga in the role of Harley Quinn, and that’s what makes her potential casting work so well. Not only does her experience in both music and acting lend itself perfectly to Todd Phillips’s reported choices for the film, but her style would complement Phoenix’s Joker well, too. All this means that Lady Gaga playing Harley Quinn in Joker 2 would be a far better outcome than many of the often-discussed fan castings of the character.
Peaky Blinders Movie Update Given By Tommy Shelby
Cillian Murphy, star of Peaky Blinders, shares an update on what’s next for his character Tommy Shelby, including a potential Peaky Blinders movie. Cillian Murphy, star of Peaky Blinders, shares an update on what’s next for his character Tommy Shelby, including a potential Peaky Blinders movie. Peaky Blinders takes place in Birmingham, England, just after World War I, and follows the Peaky Blinders crime gang. Murphy is the leader of the gang and is known for his ambition and resourcefulness as he faces several rivals throughout the series.
The series premiered in 2013 and was created by Steven Knight, who also pens the scripts. Over the years, the BBC One show, which is also available on Netflix, received several accolades including a BAFTA for Best Drama Series. The sixth and final season of Peaky Blinders premiered on Netflix on June 10 and involves both the prohibition in America as well as the rise of fascism in Europe that preceded World War II. Although Murphy at this point doesn’t have any concrete details on what the plot of a Peaky Blinders movie would entail, Knight stated in an interview with Variety in October 2021 that he is planning to write a Peaky Blinders film in order to conclude the story he started in 2013. In the interview, Knight says that he is planning for the film to be set in Birmingham, and he expects the film to start production in 2023. A production start date in 2023 certainly would give Murphy his desired hiatus from the series before filming the movie, although fans of the series will be eager for a Peaky Blinders film to come out as soon as possible.

At the moment, Knight is holding plot details of a Peaky Blinders movie close to his chest, and fans of the critically acclaimed period drama will have to continue following what new information comes forth about the next chapter in Tommy Shelby’s life.
