Star will take on the role of Harlequina - or Harley Quinn - alongside Joaquin Phoenix in the musical sequel to the DC Comics movie

The singer, 36, will take on the role of Harlequina - or Harley Quinn - alongside Joaquin Phoenix in

the musical sequel to the DC Comics movie, and took to Instagram to confirm the news.

Along with the trailer for the anticipated feature film, Gaga captioned the post: "Joker: Folie à Deux.

04.10.2024." In the video, a laugh can be heard alongside an instrumental of Frank Sinatra's hit 'Cheek to Cheek'.

The singer and actress - who gained success on the big screen through the films 'A Star is Born' and '

Gucci House' - recently explained that when it comes to acting, she will always want to tell women's stories.

"I have something in mind [for a musical], but I'm not going to say anything. I think I'll always tell women's 

stories because I'm a woman and women have so many stories to share. Women are powerful, and women 

are vulnerable. And to be vulnerable and strong at the same time, I think, is a special thing."
