New set photos from the upcoming movie musical “Joker: Folie à Deux” have surfaced online and they feature Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga in costume, dancing on the famous steps from the 2019 “Joker” movie.
The steps have become an iconic tourist spot in the Bronx, New York, attracting visitors from all over the world. However, the constant flow of tourists has also been a nuisance for the local residents who are tired of the crowds and disruption in their neighborhood.
The latest photos of the two stars dancing on the stairs are likely to draw even more attention to the area. It is interesting to note that Lady Gaga will be portraying Harley Quinn for the first time, a character that has been previously played by Margot Robbie in other films.
