While most fans are watching the new Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) trailer on repeat, others have been busy analysing some of the movie’s latest posters.
Birds of Prey‘s official Instagram page has released a series of new posters to promote the film and it appears that at least one of them might actually hold a secret Easter egg that could be connected to Harley Quinn’s wider comic mythology.
In one of those posters, Twitter user @marywarvel has pointed out that Harley’s arm tattoo has changed from showing a ‘J’ (for Joker) to something more like a mermaid, or a siren.
And, of course, fans are now speculating that Harley’s tattoo change could be linked to the comic book series Gotham City Sirens, which centres on the city’s most popular female villains – Harley, Poison Ivy and Catwoman.
In the comics, while Poison Ivy was originally a love interest for Batman, she later becomes intimate with Harley and develops feelings for her.
So could this be a subtle hint that Harley might be joined by Poison Ivy and Catwoman on the big screen and that Gotham City Sirens film we haven’t had an update on in ages is going ahead after all? We hope so!
And it seems that Robbie might have dropped a hint over a potential Posion Ivy appearance herself in an interview she gave last year, saying that she “would love to have” Poison Ivy in the DC universe.
“If you read the comics you know that Poison Ivy and Harley have an intimate relationship,” she told Pride Source.
“In some comics they convey it as a friendship; in other comics you can see that they’re actually sexually involved as a couple.

“I’ve been trying to – I would love to have Poison Ivy thrown into the universe, because the Harley and Poison Ivy relationship is one of my favourite aspects of the comics, so I’m looking to explore that on screen.”
