Margot Robbie returns as Harley Quinn in first Birds of Prey teaser


Harley Quinn gained serious popularity after she returned to the spotlight in 2016 flick .

A follow up to the DC movie, Birds of Prey, was confirmed to be focusing on Harley and other villains.

Australian actress has shared a first look image of herself back in Harley’s costume, though she looks more ready for a party than a fight.

In the selfie, Margot pouts her red lips and throws a peace sign, while wearing a pink crop top and jacket covered in shimmering tassels.

Her signature pink and blue hair has had a makeover too, with it being in much shorter pigtails.

But that wasn’t all, as a sneak peek teaser video has also been released, which gives a first look at a number of characters.

These include Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary and Ewan McGregor as Black Mask.

There’s also Chris Messina a Victor Zsasz, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya and Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain.

The full title of the film – Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) – was confirmed late last year, suggesting it will focus on Harley more than the other anti-heroes.

The movie name links with a comic book story in which Harley Quinn distances herself from the Joker, played by Jared Leto in Suicide Squad.

The loose plot for the movie will see Harley, Black Canary, Huntress and Renee team up to protect Cassandra after she’s threatened by the Black Mask.

It sounds like Birds of Prey will be much grittier than Suicide Squad, which saw Cara Delevigne’s June Moone wreak havoc as the mysterious Enchantress.

Black Mask is a Gotham City crime lord while Victor Zsasz is a particularly nasty serial killer, who carves a tally mark in his own skin after every kill.

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is set for a US release of February 7, 2020.
