“In 2016’s Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie’s antihero Harley Quinn stole the show hook, line and sinker from her villainous DC cohorts. No mean feat considering the presence of Will Smith’s Deadshot and Jared Leto’s Joker. With a mouthful of Hubba Bubba and baseball bat in hand, Robbie made an icon of Harley Quinn, inspiring cosplay choices, hair dye hues and dubious New York accents the world over.
And while the other Squaders have gone their separate ways, Quinn is now being treated to her much-deserved spin-off movie – with a fantastically ridiculous title to boot. Directed by Cathy Yan, Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) is ready to hijack the box office this February – and this time, Harley’s got a whole new flock of friends to play with.”
