You can’t spell superhero girl gang movie without “feminist” — figuratively, of course. But it seems obvious that the Margot Robbie-led Birds of Prey would be a feminist film. It has a mostly female-cast, it is written and directed by women, and it is a movie about a comic book character stepping out from under the shadow of Batman’s most famous rogue. It’s in the title itself: Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn. But star Ewan McGregor is confirming that Birds of Prey is a “feminist film” that offers a “real look on misogyny.”

The Birds of Prey trailer has dropped, and it’s absolutely fantabulous. Margot Robbie reprises her role as Harley Quinn after she stole the show in 2016’s Suicide Squad. Now she’s emancipated from that abysmal movie and her toxic relationship with the Joker in Birds of Prey.
With a new girl gang by her side and a host of colorful, much more comfortable costumes, Harley Quinn is ready to take Gotham by storm. But she and fellow female vigilantes Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), and Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) first must face one of the city’s most formidable crime lords, Black Mask (Ewan McGregor).
See our Birds of Prey trailer breakdown below.

This week brings Joker to theaters, and along with the debut of the Clown Prince of Crime’s origin story, we’ll be getting a proper glimpse at the upcoming spin-off focusing on his Clown Princess of Crime, the totally insane Harley Quinn.

A fun, colorful Birds of Prey poster just flew online, and I won’t lie: I dig it. I have no idea how Cathy Yan‘s upcoming DC film will turn out, but here’s hoping it’s as fun and vibrant as this poster, which puts Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn front and center while the rest of the cast flutters around her in a much smaller scale. See the poster below.
