With the release of four new posters for the upcoming DC Extended Universe film Birds of Prey, we now see that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn has updated her tattoo that once honored The Joker (Jared Leto).
In one of the new posters, we see that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn has a tattoo on her shoulder that was once a nod to her ex-boyfriend The Joker transformed into a siren tattoo. As one can see, Harley Quinn’s tattoo was the letter “J” in a Joker-esque font now updated as a siren tattoo. This can be seen as a nod to another female-led DC Comics team, the Gotham City Sirens.

The fact that Harley Quinn has changed her Joker-themed tattoo shows another aspect in the character’s new development following the events of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad where she has ended her relationship with The Joker. After all, the complete title for the film is Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), so we will see Margot Robbie’s character enjoy her independence in the upcoming film.
Birds of Prey is expected to further explore the journey of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn moving on from her relationship with The Joker. Earlier in the summer, one of the film’s stars Dana Lee revealed that his character is connected to Harley Quinn and The Joker.
Full details on the Birds of Prey plot are currently unknown, though the film is said to center on Huntress, Black Canary, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn joining forces to protect Cassandra Cain when she comes into the possession of a diamond belonging to a criminal kingpin known as Black Mask.
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script penned by Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson, Warner Bros.’ Birds of Prey stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Ewan, McGregor as Black Mask, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Ali Wong, Robert Catrini, and Michael Masini have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
Birds of Prey will be released in theaters on February 7, 2020.
