The final trailer for Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) landed today and it is everything I hoped for, including (finally!) some good footage of Rosie Perez as Gotham PD Detective Renee Montoya. The swagger, the sunglasses, the casual disregard for any man trying to tell her what to do! It also potentially maybe hopefully indicates that The Joker is dead??? Goddess bless! Renee Montoya is, of course, one of the most famous lesbian characters in DC comics and Harley Quinn is canonically bisexual — both of those things better come up in this movie. For now, enjoy this brilliant introduction to the Birds of Prey set to Björk’s “It’s Oh So Quiet.”
Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) hits theaters Wednesday, January 29th.
