Poster for Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation gives us a look at all the principal characters

September 18th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, a new poster has dropped for Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn and it’s pretty insane.

The poster seems to be giving us an idea of what it’s like inside Harley Quinn’s head – played once again by Margot Robbie – and features the principle cast with little angel wings, floating around her head in a fashion that reminds me of a Looney Tunes cartoon when someone runs into a wall and little birdies appear… hence the ‘Mind Over Mayhem’ other neck.

This may not be a coincidence.

If you look very closely, you’ll notice that this movie definitely looks like a proper spinoff from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad but also seems to lack any real superhero/villain suits.

As for who is in the poster, well we have, left to right, Rosie Perez as Detective Renee Montoya, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, just below her is Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz who is sporting the blonde hair as he did when he was originally created in the 90s by Alan Great and artist Norm Breyfogle.

Next we have Ewan McGregor’s as Gotham crime lord The Black Mask who looks, em, flamboyant – as per rumours we have heard already – and is, obviously sans the mask that gives him his name.

Then the rest of the cast is there too with Robbie’s Harley Quinn then above her is Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary and blow is young actress Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, a girl who will someday become the second Batgirl.

The movie was written by Bumblebee screenwriter Christina Hodson and is directed by Cathy Yan with John Wick’s Chad Stahelski handling the reshoots – particularly the action scenes.

So, there you have it… no-one is going to accuse it of being a typical comic book movie poster, are they?

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
