With the Joker being released this weekend, Warner Bros. has unleashed the very first trailer for their Birds of Prey starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and introduces us to Batman villain Black Mask played by Ewan McGregor.
We see that in the stylish footage is that Harley has indeed broken up with Mr. J and wants to break out on her own eventually teaming up with Huntress and Black Canary.
Check out the trailer below.
In Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn),” Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”) returns as Harley Quinn, alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“10 Cloverfield Lane,” TV’s “Fargo”) as Huntress; Jurnee Smollett-Bell (HBO’s “True Blood”) as Black Canary; Rosie Perez (“Fearless,” “Pitch Perfect 2”) as Renee Montoya; Chris Messina (“Argo,” TV’s “Sharp Objects”) as Victor Zsasz; and Ewan McGregor (upcoming “Doctor Sleep,” the “Trainspotting” films) as Roman Sionis. Newcomer Ella Jay Basco also stars as Cassandra “Cass” Cain in her feature film debut. Directed by Cathy Yan (“Dead Pig”) from a script by Christina Hodson (“Bumblebee”), the film is based on characters from DC.
Director Cathy Yan and producer/star Margot Robbie had been suggesting before filming they were aiming for an R-rating just like Joker.
Filming on James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad according to Gunn has already started in Georgia, which will also have Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn as a leading character and likely will be directly connected to Birds of Prey.
How or if these movies will connect to Matt Reeves’ Batman movies remains to be seen.
Birds of Prey is officially set to be released on February 7th, 2020.
