Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), the subsequent DC movie on the horizon, will deal with Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) post-Suicide Squad. A new trailer launched in early October confirmed Quinn and her new friends working collectively within the wake of Quinn’s break-up with Jared Leto’s Joker. The titular emancipation looks as if an vital half of the film from the trailer, but it surely’s doable that it will not take up lots of screentime–DC has been removing itself from Leto’s performance for a while, regardless of having plans for a standalone movie concerning the character at one level. Now, Warner Bros. has launched a brand new synopsis for the movie (thanks Uproxx), and the Joker doesn’t fee a point out in it.
Instead, the synopsis makes it clear that that is Harley’s story, and makes it clear that Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor) would be the movie’s main villain. Interestingly, the synopsis (beneath) omits the time period “Black Mask”, Sionis’s supervillain alter-ego, in favor of his title.
“You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.”
Many of these characters seem within the trailers for the movie launched thus far, however we’re nonetheless questioning if Chris Messina’s Zsasz (which feels like a significant function from this description) will carry his iconic physique rely scars–the character makes a mark into his personal physique for each individual he kills, and his total torso is normally coated in them.
Birds of Prey will launch on February 7, 2020, and is directed by Cathy Yan. It will carry an R rating, very similar to current DC movie Joker (which lately crossed the $1 billion mark in worldwide income.) Margot Robbie may also return to the function for a 3rd movie, The Suicide Squad, directed by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy 1&2). For extra, try our trailer breakdown for Birds of Prey.
