“Sometimes the only way to stay sane is to go a little crazy”.
Warner Bros. just dropped the trailer for Birds of Prey, the next in their succession of standalone DC Comics releases. Margot Robbie stars in the film, reassuming her role as Harley Quinn, whom she first played in 2016’s Suicide Squad.
Without a doubt, Harley Quinn is badass; and she kinda gives me the creeps (but in a nice way). The trailer sets up Quinn’s emergence in Gotham as a self-governing creep, answering to nobody but herself and her dark desires. Her alliance with The Joker is no longer, the trailer revealing that they “broke up”. I suspect this is Warner Bros. way of saying: “We screwed up with Jared Leto”…
Birds of Prey gives Quinn her own origin story, showing how she joined up with three fellow anti-heroes – Huntress, Black Canary, Renee Montoya; played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and Rosie Perez, respectively.
Birds of Prey will be released on February 7, 2020.
