Now that Wonder Woman 1984 has been delayed until the summer of 2020, the next DC Extended Universe movie to follow later Shazam! will be Birds of prey. This superhero movie will see Margot Robbie finally repeating Harley Quinn, who debuted in 2016 Suicide squad. Robbie is also producing Birds of prey, and today the actress has apparently revealed that the film actually has a much longer title: Birds of prey (and the emancipation of Fantabulous by One Harley Quinn).
Now, if you're just watching Margot Robbie's Instagram post, you probably think that (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of A Harley Quinn) part is fake After all, it would be like Harley scribbling on a script page and making the movie more about it. It also works like a fun riff from Michael Keaton's 2014 movie, Birdman or (The unexpected virtue of ignorance). However, The Hollywood Reporter says it is confirmed that this is officially the full title of Birds of Prey, which makes it a real failure.
I think it's safe to say that most of us probably will still refer to this movie as Birds of prey, but still, to call it Birds of prey (and the emancipation of Fantabulous by One Harley Quinn) No doubt, it helps to stand out from the crowd. Being the first R-rated film of DCEU (theatrically speaking) was already going to help on that front, but perhaps this long title implies that Birds of prey It will be a more self-referential story.
As for & # 39;EmancipationIt's going, I suppose this refers to Harley Quinn finally separating from his & # 39; puddin & # 39 ;, The Joker. Like Batman: The Animated Series and the ancestors of comics, Harley of the DCEU, the real name of Harleen Quinzel, fell in love with Joker while working at Arkham Asylum. He later became his colorful accomplice, and at the end of Suicide Squad, after his first adventure with Task Force X, the Clown Crime Prince took her out of Belle Reve.
Clearly, these two were still on good terms, but one of the defining aspects of Joker and Harley Quinn's relationship is that the former is incredibly abusive to the latter. For years, Harley would simply take this abuse, but during the last decade, particularly in the continuity of comic books after the New 52, has been separated from him and has been put on the road, becoming more of an antihero in the process. . Presumably this is what awaits Harley in Birds of prey, since there is no indication that Joker appears.
Harley Quinn of Margot Robbie will join Birds of prey (and the emancipation of Fantabulous by One Harley Quinn) by Mary Elizabeth Winstead & # 39; s Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell & # 39; s Canary Canary, Rosie Perez detective Renee Montoya and Cassandra Cain's Ella Jay Basco. While no official details of the plot have yet been revealed, the story will see Huntress, Black Canary and Renne protecting Cassandra after she encounters a diamond belonging to crime boss Roman Sionis, also known as Black Mask, played by Ewan McGregor. According to Winstead, Harley is the one that brings together this "gang of girls".
