Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix will return for the sequel, reprising his role as Arthur Fleck from the 2019 feature film. Phoenix will lead a cast that also includes returning co-star Zazie Beetz and newcomer Brendan Gleeson. Lady Gaga is also set to appear in the film, apparently playing a DC Comics version of Harley Quinn opposite Phoenix.
While it’s unclear who will play Keener, the possibility of it being someone from DC’s biggest canon is certainly on the table.

It has already been revealed that the upcoming film, which will incorporate musical elements into its content, will largely be set in iconic DC locations. Keener could very well be another asylum inmate or maybe a doctor trying to treat one of our leads.
