The photo showcases Fleck giving a dead-eyed look as he’s receiving a shave from what appears to be an orderly at the facility. He is lying shirtless, looking skinnier than ever before, with shaving foam on his face. Fans were blown over by Joaquin’s intense first look, but Joaquin’s sister Rain Phoenix commented on the same with a shock emoji.

Some fans also demanded to see Lady Gaga. She plays Harley Quinn in the movie and her look as not been revealed yet. “Sneak peak at Gaga plis,” asked a person. “Will we get your girl on Day 2,” asked another. “Please give us a picture of Harley Quinn aka Lady Gaga,” read another comment.

The film is said to be set in part in Arkham Asylum. The movie features Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn. The news was confirmed on Instagraam. Reportedly Gaga’s Quinn will reside in a distinct realm from Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
