The first official Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) movie poster is released, revealing the full main cast.
The focal point, naturally, is Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. However, floating around her head are winged versions of Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Helena Bertinelli/Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Dinah Lance/Black Canary, Rosie Perez’s Renee Montoya, Ella Jay Basco’s Cassandra Cain, Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask and Chris Messina’s Victor Zsasz.
All of the major players in Birds of Prey feature on this poster, but Harley Quinn is the only one included twice – once as the backdrop and again as one of the winged characters flying around her head. That makes sense considering Harley Quinn is arguably the most recognizable DC character of the bunch to casual audiences, especially Robbie’s version, which was one of the best received aspects of Ayer’s Suicide Squad.
The Birds of Prey movie, based on the DC Comics team of the same name, will see Robbie’s Harley Quinn team up with superheroes like Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) along with Gotham City police detective Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez). Together, the women will face off against the villainous Black Mask (Ewan McGregor) and Victor Zsasz (Chris Messina) in order to protect the young Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) – who, in the comics, eventually dons the mantle of Batgirl.
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) stars Margot Robbie, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez, Ewan McGregor, Steven Williams, Derek Wilson, Dana Lee, Francois Chau, Charlene Amoia, Chris Messina and Matthew Willig. The film is scheduled for release on Feb. 7, 2020.
