Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is getting her own movie, and it looks like she might finally be free of the Joker.

This DC film will focus on Harley Quinn after-Suicide Squad.In the new trailer that released in October showed Quinn and her new pals working together in the wake of Quinn’s break-up with The Joker. The titular emancipation seems like an important part of the movie from the trailer, but it’s possible that it won’t take up a lot of screentime–DC has been removing itself from Leto’s performance for some time, despite having plans for a standalone movie about the character at one point. Now, Warner Bros. has released a new synopsis for the film (thanks Uproxx), and the Joker does not rate a mention in it.

Instead, the synopsis makes it clear that this is Harley’s story, and makes it clear that Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor) will be the film’s major villain. Interestingly, the synopsis (below) omits the term “Black Mask”, Sionis’s supervillain alter-ego, in favor of his name.
