Margot Robbie is back on Instagram teasing her upcoming DC movie “Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).” The film is currently still in production and on schedule for the previously announced February 2020 release date. The new photo features the same Harley Quinn attitude, but with an updated costume.
Robbie has used Instagram in the past to tease the film; the incredibly long title was also revealed on the social media platform in 2018. Margot Robbie is reprising her role as Harley Quinn for the project, which is a spinoff the 2016 film “Suicide Squad.”
While “Suicide Squad” may have divided critics and fans, the film did well in theaters. The DC installment made over $133M on opening weekend back in August 2016 and went on to make over $746M worldwide. That movie featured Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis, Scott Eastwood, Joel Kinnaman, Common, Jay Hernandez, and Adam Beach and was directed by David Ayer.
Joining Robbie in the new DC installment is Ewan McGregor, who will be playing the role of Black Mask. The other stars include Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, and Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain. It has also been reported that Chris Messina will be playing the role of Victor Zsasz in the film.
“Birds of Prey” is being directed by Cathy Yan, with Sue Kroll, Margot Robbie, and Bryan Unkeless producing. DC fans have a long wait before the film is ready for theaters, “Birds of Prey” is scheduled to hit theaters on February 7, 2020.
The new DCEU film to beat is “Aquaman,” which just became the highest-grossing DCEU release ever this weekend. Directed by James Wan, the film made $67M on opening weekend, but strong sales overseas brought the film to $1.09B at the time this article was written. The film is still going strong in theaters, landing in third-place this weekend on the domestic box office charts. “Aquaman” starred Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman, and Patrick Wilson.
