So after what seems like years of waiting and anticipation, we have finally gotten our first full trailer for the new Birds of Prey movie. Or, as I like to call it, Harley Quinn – starring Harley Quinn, with additional puns and jokes by Harley Quinn (also some other chicks because bird puns). Yes, it seems that some worries have come to light with the release of this recent trailer, particularly the worry that this film would basically evolve into another solo platform for budding starlet, Margot Robbie. After bagging a producer role and wedging herself into a script that I’m pretty sure was meant to have Barbara Gordon as the protagonist, Robbie also stole the primary narrative of the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel. And after dozens of gorgeous posters only showcasing Harley as the sole character, it has become clear that Robbie intends for this film to be all about her.
Last year it was announced that Warner Bros. in association with DC Films would produce a film that would focus solely on the infamous Joker character. This film would remain detached from the continuity of the dreaded DCEU, which has faced nothing but criticism from fans and media. In fact, this film would launch a new franchise of super-hero movies, one made up of solo, low-budget films that would change the face of the industry forever.
