Lady Gaga is ready to dive into the Batman universe after giving fans a sneak peek of her as Harley Quinn.

Gaga shared a picture of her moments after a passionate kiss with Joker, with red lipstick smudged all over face as she looks infatuated with the trickster.

The singer will be portraying Harley Quinn, Joker’s longtime henchwoman and love interest.

The character was first created in 1992 for ‘Batman: The Animated Series’, and saw the duo first meet when Quinn was a psychiatrist at Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum.

Harley Quinn was previously portrayed by Margot Robbie in 2016′s ‘Suicide Squad’, the 2021 sequel ‘The Suicide Squad’, as well as a spinoff, ‘Birds of Prey’, in 2020.

Robbie previously stated she was happy to see another great actor get the role, as she wants to see the Quinn character become a role that gets passed on from one great performer to the next.

“It makes me so happy because I said from the very beginning that all I want is for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters the way…like Macbeth or Batman always gets passed from great actor to great actor,” Robbie told MTV News.

“Someone gets to do their Batman, or someone gets to do their Macbeth.”

When will ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ be released?

‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ is scheduled to be released in theaters on October 4, 2023.

Joaquin Phoenix and Zazie Beetz return as Arthur Fleck/Joker and Sophie Dumond respectively following the success of ‘Joker’ in 2019. They are joined by Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, with Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland and Harry Lawtey all cast in undisclosed roles.

Originally intended to be a standalone movie, ‘Joker’ was nominated for Best Picture at the 2020 Academy Awards, while Phoenix took home Best Actor for his portrayal of Joker.

Hildur Guðnadóttir won the Oscar and Golden Globe for Best Original Score, as well as the Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media.
