Joker is set to come out by the end of the week, but WB has finally released the first teaser for Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Watch Margot Robbie go absolutely wild as the ex of the Clown Prince of Crime.
Though Harley is undoubtedly the leader of this film, we finally get a better look at the other members of the Birds of Prey like Black Canary, Huntress, Det. Renee Montoya, and Cassandra Cain. We also get a hint at Ewan McGregor's Roman Sionis, but we don't get to see him wear the black mask just yet. If anything, I expect the final look to be as gruesome as Two-Face from The Dark Knight; we do get to see how Sionis is kind of crazy though, which I'm really excited for.
With Aquaman and Shazam! leaning more into the commercial aspect of superhero films, you can feel that Birds of Prey has a more stylistic approach. Besides the colors, the trailer kind of feels like the SDCC teaser for Suicide Squad—you know, the darker one before Batman v Superman came out and WB demanded the film be made more "fun."
This is also just my personal observation, but the shot of Harley happily walking away with an explosion behind her kind of reminds me of the scene from Dark Knight where Joker blows up a hospital.
Catch Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) when it comes out Feb. 7, 2020.
