In anticipation of New York Comic Con coming this week, WB and DC have dropped the first trailer for the highly anticipated return of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, and the introduction of the Birds of Prey. The trailer gives us an awesome, surreal first look at the mayhem to come, including our introductions to the DCEU’s Huntress, Black Canary, Renee Montoya, and Cassandra Cain, as well as Ewan McGregor as the nefarious Black Mask.
There is a strong emphasis on female empowerment in this one, teasing that Harley has finally broken up with The Joker. I anticipate those disappointed in her arc in Suicide Squad (i.e. me) will be very pleased about this. Plus getting to see women of color like Rosie Perez, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and Ella Jay Basco at the forefront of the movie, kicking a whole lot of ass? What more could we ask for in a comic book movie???
Birds of Prey hits theaters February 7, 2020!
