Margot Robbie will soon be back as Harley Quinn in the upcoming film “Birds of Prey,” and on Monday, the actress gave fans a first look at her in character costume. “Miss me?,” Robbie posted on Instagram together with a selfie.
Robbie has played a diverse set of characters lately, ranging from this year’s “Queen Elizabeth I in Mary Queen of Scots”, as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya” the previous year, and as actress Sharon Tate in next year’s Quentin Tarantino directed crime drama ensemble “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
But her Harley Quinn portrayal in the DC Comics’ 2016 supervillain film Suicide Squad is undoubtedly one of the biggest fan favorite. Thought part of an ensemble cast, her character is one of the film’s highlights, helping the film reach lofty box office heights ($746.8 million) in spite of the film’s lukewarm critical reception.
Robbie’s Harley Quinn is set to team with a trio of supervillains in ‘Prey’, joining forces with Dinah Laurel Lance / Black Canary, Helena Bertinelli / Huntress, Cassandra Cain and Renee Montoya.
The original Birds of Prey comics series was conceived by Jordan B. Gorfinkel and has seen its setting move around various locations, from Batman’s popularly known residence Gotham City, then in Superman’s Metropolis and eventually settling in 2008 in “Platinum Flats” in California. Originally a partnership between Dinah Lance and Barbara Gordon, the team has since expanded to include other DC superheroines.
Also in the film are co-stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ella Jay Basco, and Ewan McGregor. Birds of Prey is currently set for release next year, February 7, 2020.
