Warner Bros. has launched a brand new Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) poster that places extra concentrate on the Birds of Prey group, and never simply Harley Quinn. Margot Robbie’s flip as Harley was simply essentially the most extensively beloved aspect from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad when it opened in 2016, and WB has been transferring to capitalize on her reputation ever since. At completely different instances, there’ve been as many as 4 Harley-related DCEU initiatives in growth without delay over the previous couple of years, together with Gotham Metropolis Sirens, Suicide Squad 2, Birds of Prey, and a Harley Quinn/Joker film.
Of them, solely Birds of Prey and Suicide Squad 2 (aka. James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad) has launch dates at this juncture. The previous is being directed by Cathy Yan and can attain theaters subsequent February, with Robbie main a solid that features Jurnee Smollett-Bell because the Black Canary and Mary Elisabeth Winstead as Huntress. A brand new Birds of Prey trailer is anticipated to premiere at CCXP later this week, however a contemporary one-sheet for the movie has dropped forward of then.
The most recent Birds of Prey poster was launched by the movie’s official social media accounts in the present day, in anticipation of its imminent CCXP panel. You may test it out within the house under.
Some followers have expressed concern about Harley’s dominance of the Birds of Prey advertising to this point, and with honest purpose; the title Birds of Prey suggests it is a team-up movie, reasonably than a Harley Quinn solo film that includes some further DC characters. Maybe in an effort to deal with this concern, the newest poster locations Harley within the foreground, but does a greater job of highlighting Huntress and Black Canary than the one-sheets earlier than it have. Equally, Rosie Perez as Gotham Metropolis cop Renee Montoya and Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain (the younger woman the Birds, Harley, and Montoya shield within the movie) are featured equally alongside the trio right here. Harley would possibly nonetheless be the primary attraction, however this art work nonetheless does a greater job of making Birds of Prey look like an ensemble journey than those up to now have.
It stays to be seen if that holds true for the precise film, however the odds appear good proper now. Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson (Bumblebee) has described the movie as a continuation of Harley’s story, however says she “fell in love” with its different characters, and (by extension) aimed to do all of them justice together with her screenplay. Additional, WB has already locked the Birds of Prey solid in for potential sequels and spinoffs, clearly with the intention of bringing most/all of them again down the road, ought to the film turn into an enormous success. Harley will certainly find yourself dominating many a scene (as colourful personalities like Harley Quinn are inclined to do) however, hopefully, the Birds of Prey will get their honest due within the last movie.
