The latest instalment of the Extended DC Universe in the cinema turns its attention to the character of Harley Quinn as first introduced in 'Suicide Squad'. Margot Robbie returns to her leading role from the David Ayer flick, though this time around her iconic character has broken up with the Joker (formerly played by Jared Leto) and forms her own team of unstoppable fighters. Together with Dinah Lance aka Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Helena Bertinelli aka Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Renée Montoya (Rosie Perez), the four warriors of Gotham join forces to face the criminal gang led by Black Mask (Ewan McGregor), a powerful mogal for whom Dinah Lance works as a singer in his personal nightclub. This legendary villain played by Ewan McGregor has placed a hit on the head of a young girl (Ella Jay Basco) that the Birds of Prey are determined o rescue. Harley Quinn serves as the unreliable narrator of this tale, which is set to be more tonally similar more to comics, as suggested by Margot Robbie herself when she presented the idea to Warner Bros due to her love for the character and the positive reception from audiences. 'Birds of Prey' is an adaptation of the comic created by Jordan B. Gorfinkel and Chuck Dixon which has been in publication since 1996.
