Birds of Prey Confirmed Characters
It’s a whole new decade! With the start of 2020, we are so close to the release of an all-female inspired DC movie. Well, DC and Marvel aren’t known for their female heroes and villains anyway. However, that might be changing soon. The Birds Of Prey releases February 7th in cinemas worldwide. The Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is directed by James Gunn. Most DC fans are already awaiting the release as it is a Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) film but as it turns out, there’s more to it. Harley Quinn finds a reason for liberation when she realizes that she is not the first to be victimized by the crime lord, Black Mask.
The Cast of Birds Of Prey 2020
Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn
Our Suicide Squad crazy-cakes is the center of the film. Margot Robbie returns to play Harley Quinn but this time. without her Darlin’ Joker. The Scottish-Australian actress is so flawless in her roles and we for one, do not doubt her villain skills. Most of us might be turning up to the cinemas all for her.
Although, seems like Quinn has ditched her ponytails for pigtails.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead – Huntress
Huntress is actually Helena Britenelli. Here’s an interesting fact: Huntress was the daughter to Bruce Wayne and Selena Kyle at first. However, this was later erased in 1985’s infamous Crisis On Infinite Earths storyline. The character of Huntress was later renewed as a girl who is born into a crime-oriented family. The reason she becomes ‘huntress’ is because she witnesses a rival mob killing her entire family. Now, she’s featuring in Harley Quinn’s ’emancipation’ film, Birds of Prey.

Rosie Perez – Renee Montoya
Rosie Perez plays the role of Renee; a name known to DC fans as a colleague to the Commissioner Jim Gordan. What makes us curious is why would such a dedicated officer join forces with Harley Quinn? Any hints on what the connection could be?
Jurnee Smollett-Bell – Black Canary
Here’s another empowered and amazing character. Jurnee herself is very humble-Joe. But that doesn’t mean she can’t kick ass when need be. Makes her role in Birds of Prey justified. The name Black Canary itself sounds so interesting and enchanting. She is seen working in Black Mask’s Night Club as a singer. All it takes for her to become part of the Harley Quinn Squad is a drink with the Quinn herself! (Pun-intended)
Ella Jay Basco – Cass
This is a new addition to Gotham City. So far, we know that she is a girl attacked by another Gotham City Villian Victor Zsasz. Also, this is Ella Jay Basco’s debut into the film industry. Let’s see how this plays out in Birds Of Prey!

Ewan McGregor – Black Mask
Most may not know this but, Black Mask is Gotham City’s most sadistic villain. He wears the broken skull of his dead father (who he killed himself). We wonder why DC added him to Birds Of Prey.. they could’ve left him for Batman or Joker. Cannot wait to see how the Doctor Sleep Star Ewan McGregor pulls off this legendary comic book villain.
Chris Messina – Victor Zsasz
The man who is known to make a living by taking lives, it comes as no surprise that Zsasz is friends with Black Mask. There is reason to believe that he is the reason the movie is R-Rated as Messina is known for his sketchy roles.
Fans have been awaiting the movie since news broke out of it’s making in 2018. Only a few days to go now. Let the countdown start!
