Lady Gaga gave her Monsters and cinephiles the first look at her Harley Quinn character in new set photos from Joker: Folie a Deux’s New York shoot.

Paparazzi previously snapped the singer/actress on the sequel’s shoot — and director Todd Phillips shared a Valentine’s Day still of Gaga and Joaquin Phoenix locking eyes — but those photos only captured Gaga in her pre-villain role of Dr. Harleen Quinzel, a prison psychiatrist tasked with treating Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck. Saturday’s shots, captured outside the New York State Supreme Court Building amid a scene with an army of extras, shows Gaga in Harley Quinn costume for the first time.

As social media has pointed out, Gaga’s look — in this scene, anyway — shares more in common with the Harley Quinn of the short-lived 2002 Birds of Prey TV show than the bat-wielding maximalist take that Margot Robbie recently brought to the big screen.
