At long last, the first full Birds of Prey trailer has arrived, and we’re getting a proper look at the movie.
The focus is very clearly on Harley (Margot Robbie) in this first trailer as she is known by general audiences, but there are some definite hints to background on Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). There’s at least one shot of a younger woman in a church which suggests to us we’ll be something about her origins.
Beyond that, this trailer is just pretty much pure color and energy from start to finish. We do get a quick reference to Joker, and beyond that it feels like its own story. What exactly that story will be isn’t clear yet, other than Black Mask (Ewan McGregor) is after all of them.
Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) will be the first appearance of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn since Suicide Squad. She will be joined by Mary Elizabeth Winstead as the Huntress, while Jurnee Smollett-Bell will be playing Black Canary. Rosie Perez will be playing Renee Montoya, and Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain as well. And Ewan McGregor joined the cast as Gotham City villain Black Mask.
The Birds of Prey movie is scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 7, 2020.
