You might be wondering: How’d Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) separate from the Joker? According to the newest Birds of Prey trailer, the decision was completely mutual. Whether you choose to believe her is up to you.
Following her completely-amicable-and-not-at-all-messy split from Joker, Harley suddenly finds herself the target of one Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor), who is also known as Black Mask. Speaking of whom, McGregor dons the villain’s trademark headpiece on multiple occasions in the latest trailer, giving us a good look at his menacing costume.
Luckily, Harley won’t be completely on her own. She teams up with other women looking for emancipation, including Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Black Canary (June Smollett-Bell), Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), and Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco). As the trailer shows, each has their own unique ability, making them a powerful, deadly team.
In addition to plenty of wild action, the trailer displays a great sense of style and color; it truly does look like comic pages come to life. We’ll see how the aesthetic and tone comes together when Birds of Prey hits theaters on February 7.
