Talk about some serious girl power
We got a little present this morning in the form of our very first look at Cathy Yan’s upcoming female lead super team up Birds of Prey. The sorta pseudo-sister sequel to David Ayers Suicide Squad. It will feature the return of everyone’s favourite psychopath Harley Quinn, where she will be teaming up with some other kick-ass woman to take down the nefarious Black Mask.
After the box-office success that was Suicide Squad one thing was certain, everyone wanted much more Harley. The clear standout of the film, it wasn’t long before WB green-lit her very own movie. Now much like Suicide Squad or Marvels Guardians of The Galaxy, this movie will be made up of a bunch of rift rafts and some serious B level or even C level heroes. That doesn’t mean it can’t be successful or it won’t be great, it just means that the average movie-goer might not know who these lovely ladies are. Suiting up will be Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress who could easily be the new favourite after the film. A cool ass character played by a terrific actress is a deadly combo. Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary who fans might recognize from the CW and Arrow. I’m guessing she will be much larger in scale and be given actual powers in this. The legend Rosie Perez who will be playing one of the few good cops in Gotham Renee Montoya and Ella Jay Basco who will be the centre of attention as Cassandra Cain.
They will all come together to take down Black Mask who will be played by Ewan McGregor. What an underrated Batman baddie, who if done properly can be one serious threat. He’s a lunatic who enjoys beating people to a pulp while wearing one scary mask. I don’t see him having it until near the end of the film, but we will see how they play out his origin. That’s a ton of great acting talent for this cast, which promises to be fun, while also getting down and dirty with the action. Remember it’s a DCEU movie, don’t be shocked if we see some cameos or are alluded to some other heroes or big baddies (Penguin).
Can’t wait for this one actually, Margot Robbie was born to play Harley Quinn, can’t wait to see what they can do with her when she’s fully unleashed.
