After months of teasers, we finally get to have a taste of the first full-length trailer for Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn, which Margot Robbie re-lived her iconic role as Harley Quinn from 2016’s Suicide Squad. The trailer below garnered over 3M views in less than 24 hours of its release on YouTube. So what do you think… The Birds of Prey trailer: Yay or Nay?
There are some mixed reactions to the Birds of Prey trailer, let’s see what the Twitter-verse has to say. We’ll start from the bad ones first since it’s always good to save ‘finish meals off’ with sweet things ??
Are you team Yay or Nay? Personally, by watching the Birds of Prey trailer ALONE might not do justice -- but here’s what I got so far:
Black Canary a.k.a Dinah Lance is arguably one of the DC Universe’s most skillful fighters, trained since childhood. Being hailed as one of DC’s greatest fighters, alongside Batman himself -- I’m not sure how her character will fit in the movie acting like a novice under the wings of Harley.
In the comics, Cassandra Cain was trained to become a warrior from birth. In order to do so, she was deprived of speech so that she would learn to fight as the first ‘language’ instead. Batman eventually adopted her as the new Batgirl. In the trailer, however, Cass is not as tough as her character should be, and she speaks perfectly. Hopefully, the movie’s character will be delivered with justice.
Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask is pretty different from the comics. Originally, he wears a black skull mask made from his dad’s wood casket. Ewan wears black gloves instead -- maybe the gloves belonged to his dad? We’ll see. Good thing Ewan’s a really good actor, so that’s our saving grace.
