Margot Robbie gives us our first look from behind the scenes of Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
Given the divisive response to David Ayer’s DC Blockbuster Suicide Squad, one would think the property was destined to be put on the shelf ready to gather dust for years to come. However, one thing ensured that would never happen…Harley Quinn.
Margot Robbie’s standout performance as The Joker’s main squeeze was heralded as a huge triumph and left fans of the character desperate for more adventures with the devilishly charming starlet, and Warner Bros. is eager to oblige. We have an animated Harley Quinn series headed to the DC Universe streaming service, a Harley Quinn/Joker movie mooted for future production, as well as Suicide Squad 2 which is currently being written by Guardians of the Galaxy scribe James Gunn.
However, before we can tangle with Deadshot and the rest of the gang, Harley Quinn will be back on the big screen in Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn which entered production this past January. The movie will boast the acting talents of Ewan Mcgregor as Black Mask, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary and Chris Messina as the infamous hitman Victor Zsasz.
The movie is set to come out one year from now and Robbie is wasting no time teasing her return by taking to Instagram to show off her new costume. Robbie posted the photo with the caption “Miss me” and a little kissy emoji.
If that wasn’t enough to get your DC Comics juices flowing, Warner Bros. followed up with a short but revealing teaser video which unveiled some of the cast in full costume.
With Cathy Yan in the director’s chair, Birds of Prey follows the adventures of Cassandra Cain, a young girl who comes across a diamond belonging to crime lord Black Mask. Eager to help, Harley Quinn recruits Black Canary, Huntress, and Renee Montoya to help protect her.
Birds of Prey and the Emancipation of One Harley Quinn swoops into cinemas in February 2020.
