“Birds of Prey” Trailer

Margot Robbie’s outstanding performance as the Joker obsessed Harley Quinn in the DC Extended Universe’s “Suicide Squad” has earned the character her own spin-off which is reportedly being developed into a trilogy of films. The trailer for the first of the series, “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn)”, has been released and it seems fans can prepare for more R-rated Harley-centric fun as she tries to move on after her breakup with Joker. Along with her newfound friends, Black Canary, Huntress and detective Renee Montoya, to save Cassandra Cain (one of several characters who took on the role of Batgirl in DC’s comics) from Black Mask, a ruthless crime lord who operates out of Gotham City. Though the film is a part of the DCEU, none of the other DC heroes will feature in the film.
