Lady Gaga was confirmed in the role of Harley Quinn in August 2022, succeeding Margot Robbie.

Many fans were excited about this casting, especially after her phenomenal performance in the film, A Star is Born. The set photos released on social media showed Gaga in the Harley Quinn costume, which also added to the hype.

Meanwhile, Ariana Grande’s role as Glinda in Wicked was confirmed way back in November 2021. Grande’s set photos also created a buzz among the netizens.

Fans of both pop stars were quick to react to the news.

One Gaga fan shared that it was nothing unusual for ‘Godga’ to become the most anticipated.

Other fans also joined in cheering for the Bad Romance singer, with one stating that her performances are consistently top-notch.

One Grande fan expressed that while the Dangerous Woman singer deserved the number one spot, he was excited about all three performances.

One fan was so confident about Grande’s performance that he went so far as to predict that the Bang Bang singer might even win an Oscar for her role. Some fan reactions read:

In addition to being featured in the list of most anticipated performances, Lady Gaga also claimed the second spot in the list of most anticipated villains.

She surpassed her co-star Joaquin Phoenix in this list, which was topped by Beetlejuice 2’s Michael Keaton.

According to Fandango’s survey, Deadpool 3 is the most anticipated wide-release film of 2024. Fans also look forward to Beetlejuice 2 and Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire.

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine beats Ryan Reynolds as the most anticipated hero of 2024.

Surprisingly, the top genres anticipated by audiences in 2024 are Action / Adventure and Comedy. It also suggests a shift in interest as comic book movies come in third place.

The survey also found that audiences are more interested in the 2024 releases compared to the films in 2023, with 81% of the surveyors agreeing on that fact.

Another interesting pattern among the top 10 anticipated wide-release films is that they all belong to a familiar IP rather than being original productions.

Lady Gaga’s Joker: Folie à Deux is scheduled to be released in theaters on October 4, 2024. Ariana Grande’s Wicked will be released in two parts, with Part One hitting theaters on November 27, 2024, and Part Two following on November 26, 2025.
