A teaser for the highly anticipated prequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad has finally surfaced. The new teaser for Birds of Prey introduces Harley Quinn and additional DC characters.
Among these characters we find Black Mask (Ewan MacGregor), Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Huntress (Elizabeth Winstead) and others. See teaser below –
This news comes on the back of Margot Robbie sharing a first look of Harley Quinn from the upcoming movie –
Christina Hodson, who wrote the script for Birds of Prey, had previously elaborated on what made her want to be part of the project and its appeal –
“I just fell in love with Harley. She makes me laugh, but she also makes me cry…She’s got such emotional depth that is completely contrasted by this light, superficial, fun exterior. Even in the comics when she is at her best, she’s doing something bad — and when she’s at her worst she’s doing something good. And that makes her so interesting and so much more real because that’s what people are like in real life. Very few people are just purely heroic or purely villainous, and she is this wonderful balance of everything.”
Of the films star and producer, Margot Robbie, Hodson said –
“This, I can say: [Robbie] is an amazing producer. She’s so dedicated, cares so much, she is in it and works so hard — looks through every choice, reads through every draft, and has super-smart notes. I am all about finding good people you believe in as human beings as well as being good creative partners and producers, because it’s an investment — writing these movies takes it out of you.
And added on Director Cathy Yan –
“I’m also just excited that [director Cathy Yan] is a woman and she’s Asian. That’s a big deal.”
Birds of Prey flies into stateside theaters on February 7, 2020.
