The future of Warner Bros. Pictures’ superhero universe is a bit more stable now that both Aquaman and Wonder Woman have met expectations critically and commercially, making the outlook a little brighter for some of the other projects currently in development.
Among those films is Birds of Prey, a live-action feature that will bring back Suicide Squad actress Margot Robbie as the deranged Harley Quinn, focusing on a group of female heroes and villains from the DC Comics universe.
The first teaser for Birds of Prey — which is also being titled Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) in some of its marketing — was released January 28, and introduces the primary cast members for the film and how their characters will appear in the project.
Along with Robbie as Harley Quinn (who appears prominently in the teaser), the film’s cast includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain (a.k.a.
Batgirl), Ewan McGregor as the villain Black Mask, and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya.
Supporting cast members include Ali Wong (Fresh Off the Boat), Robert Catrini (American Crime Story), Chris Messina (Sharp Objects), Steven Williams (It), and Derek Wilson (Preacher).
