This is not the first time that Todd has shared these photos. Earlier in December, the director shared a couple of photos showing both the lead actors. One of the photos transport the fans into the confines of Arkham Asylum, where Arthur Fleck is seen locked behind bars. This setting hints at the dark and intense atmosphere that is expected to unravel within the sequel, promising a continuation of the psychological depth explored in the first installment. The second image takes a dramatic turn, revealing Lady Gaga's portrayal of Harley Quinn gazing affectionately at the Joker. As speculation grows about the duo's romance and cruel partnership, the sequel is poised to delve into the intricacies of their relationship.

Todd Phillips has been vocal about the film's detachment from the broader DC Extended Universe and any upcoming projects, including Robert Pattinson's Batman or James Gunn's DC films. The director's vision emphasises creative freedom, having once proposed the idea of a DC Black label to allow diverse adaptations of DC characters without strict interconnection.
