In the just-released Warner Bros trailer for Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), Margot Robbie comes back to Bruce Wayne’s main residence as Harley Quinn, the unstable lady of vivacity who made the jump from the pages of DC Comics to Hollywood’s big screen in Suicide Squad (2016). That $175 million PG-13 film heaped up $747 million in overall film industry due in huge part to Robbie’s risqué, wild-kid execution — the new film will take a stab at pushing considerably further into tense material with a R-rating.
The “emancipation” in the unpredictable (and stretched) title is a gesture to Harley’s relationship status in the wake of going separate ways with her terrible kid beau, the Joker (as played with pervy threat by Jared Leto in Suicide Squad). Be that as it may, being single isn’t equivalent to being distant from everyone else, particularly when you have companions like the Birds of Prey. That is the name for the “girl gang” that groups Harley with the Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Black Canary (Jurnee Smollet-Bell).
The trio will conflict with Ewan McGregor as the secretive and savage crime boss called the Black Mask. The cast incorporates Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, and Chris Messina as Victor Zsaz. Birds of Prey was directed by Cathy Yan and due in theaters on Feb. 7.
The trailer’s release is a piece of an aggressive week for Gotham City characters. This past Sunday night, Pennyworth (featuring Jack Bannon as Batman’s future head servant) finished off its first season on Epix. This Thursday, the exceptionally anticipated Joker hits theaters and is broadly viewed as a major Oscar contender. Next Sunday, the new R-rated Harley Quinn TV series (featuring Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory) will get an speak peek at New York Comic Con. Same night, Batwoman debuts on The CW. And oh yeah, this year is the 80th anniversary of Batman.
