Birds of Prey CinemaCon Footage: Bat-Stuff Crazy


In addition to the Joker trailer, Warner Bros. also showed off a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming Margot Robbie Birds of Prey movie at CinemaCon.

The footage reveals that Harley Quinn is not a member of Birds of Prey, but that she stirs the pot, with the team consisting of Huntress, Back Canary, and Cassandra Cain. Footage also includes a look at Ewan McGregor as the Black Mask practicing with weapons.

“This is not Batman’s Gotham. Our Gotham is so much scrappier,” director Cathy Yan and the cast said. “We are not pulling any punches… and I like it. This movie is batsh-t crazy!”
