The first trailer for Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn has arrived, and in the midst of all the goodness that is Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, some still have questions about the Joker. Will the Joker be in Birds of Prey? And is the new Joker movie at all connected to Birds of Prey?

To tackle the latter question first, the short answer is no. Todd Phillips’ Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix is an origin story about the Joker that has nothing to do with the DC Extended Universe or any of the events from 2016’s Suicide Squad, to which Birds of Prey serves as a sequel of sorts. 

Todd Phillips Says Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Won’t Meet Robert Pattinson’s Batman

Todd Phillips Says Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Won’t Meet Robert Pattinson’s Batman “Joker” director Todd Phillips isn’t optimistic when it comes to a future meeting between Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker and Robert Pattinson’s recently announced Batman “No, definitely not,” he told Variety when asked if the pair would appear in a future film together. 

HUGE news dropped this week as Joaquin Phoenix will be The Joker ! On top of that , there may be a glimpse of Shazam seen next week at San Diego Comic-Con. Plus, will Birds of Prey and Black Adam start production in 2019?

Will Joaquin Phoenix ' s Joker be a kind of anti-hero for the people of Gotham City? But now that a fully fledged trailer for Joker is out in the wild, we gotta admit, we are pretty stoked on it. But honestly, the trailer leaves us all with more questions than answers, which is where the theorizing comes in.

In Birds of Prey, Robbie reprises her role from Suicide Squad. However, this time, instead of playing second string to male characters, Harley is living her best life post-Joker, who was played by Jared Leto in the film. Yup. The infamous clown couple has broken up, according to the trailer.

Leaked photos from the set show Joker tossing Harley’s belongings out of a window, but Leto is not returning in Birds of Prey. So, this cameo is probably just as long as the Joker’s cameo in the first Birds of Prey comic was. That’s good for fans who want to see Harley have the “fresh start” she raves about after tossing knives at a drawing of the Joker in the trailer.

Instead of crying over the Joker or following his lead, Harley gets a chance to stand on her own and forge a new identity through friendships with other badass women, including Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).That is something Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson said that Robbie, who also serves as a producer, was adamant about during the movie’s development.

“Margot knew she wanted to tell a ‘Harley Quinn plus girls’ story,” Hodson said in an interview with Total Film. “That was kind of where she began with it. She knew she wanted a girl gang. She wanted Harley to have friends.”

Sounds to us like no Joker, no problems.
