Todd Phillips Celebrates Valentine’s Day With New ‘Joker 2’ Pics of Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix

Lady Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix look crazy in love in a new series of Joker: Folie à Deux set pictures posted by director Todd Phillips on Valentine’s Day. Philips shared three images from the upcoming DC sequel on Instagram — tagged to Gotham City, naturally — in which Phoenix’s Joker shares some quality time with Gaga’s Harley Quinn.

“Hoping your day is full of love,” Phillips wrote in the caption, along with the movie’s release date, Oct. 4. In the first image, Phoenix, in full horrifying Joker face paint, stands face-to-face with Gaga’s golden-haired Quinn. In a second look, Gaga smiles lovingly at a locked-up Phoenix, while a third image shows the pair dancing on a rooftop in their formalwear.

The latest images from the set of the closely-held film follow on the heels of a December post from Phillips that featured an image of Phoenix’s head seen through a prison door and another of the actor in his signature makeup and burgundy suit staring at Gaga, wearing a flower print dress and sporting dark hair.

The film — which will be released five years after the $1 billion-grossing, Oscar-nominated original — will also feature Zazie Beetz (returning in her role as Sophie), Brendan Gleeson, Catherine Keener, Jacob Lofland and Harry Lawtey. A trailer has not yet been released and the film’s plot is still a mystery.

A year ago, also on Valentine’s Day, Phillips posted a close-up of Phoenix standing face-to-face with Gaga’s Quinn, who holds his face in her hands, with both sporting red paint-smeared faces as evidence of a passionate kiss.
