CinemaCon 2019 kicked off last night in Las Vegas, and DC Entertainment decided to kick things up a notch, with the reveal of two new teaser posters, and the first footage for Wonder Woman 1984, and Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn.
The Wonder Woman 1984 footage was light, but displayed Diana Prince at her full powers, as well as our first look at Kristen Wiig as Barbara Minerva, albeit not in her Cheetah form. Meanwhile, the Birds of Prey footage revealed that Harley Quinn isn’t exactly a member of the “girl gang” as it were, but forms an alliance with the team to stop a common enemy.
You can hit the jump to check out the posters in full. Birds of Prey flies into theaters on February 7th, 2020, while Wonder Woman 1984 is set for release on June 4th, 2020.

Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment have given us a surprising first look at the upcoming live-action Birds of Prey (and The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), revealing first looks at all of the main characters of the film. The first look was revealed by a mysterious YouTube channel titled “CheekySneakyPeeky.”
The trailer shows Margot Robbie suited up once again as Harley Quinn, as well as Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain/Batgirl, Ewan McGregor as the villain Black Mask, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, and Chris Messina as Victor Szasz.
Warner Bros. has released the full cast list for their upcoming live-action adaptation for Birds of Prey, and according to Deadline, Chris Messina (The Mindy Project) has been cast in the film as Victor Zsasz, the long-time murderous Batman villain. In the comics, Zsasz is a psychopath dedicated to the “art” of killing, who most notably marks himself with a cut for every life he’s taken.
Messina joins Junee Smollett-Bell, headlining the film as Black Canary, Mary Elizabeth Winstead will co-star as the Huntress, with Margot Robbie returning as Harley Quinn, and Ewan McGregor as Black mask. Birds of Prey hits theaters on February 7th, 2020.
Variety is reporting that newcomer Ella Jay Basco (Veep) is in final talks to portray Cassandra Cain, aka Orphan, in the upcoming DC adaptation, Birds of Prey. In the movie, Harley Quinn, Huntress, and Black Canary team up to protect Cassandra, the daughter of David Cain and Lady Shiva, from the terrifying mobster, Black Mask.
Cathy Yan is set to direct, with the film currently releasing on February 7th, 2020. We’ve got a ways to go before production begins on this one, but the cast has shaped up to be something quite special.

According to Deadline, while speaking at the US-China Entertainment Summit at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles last night, Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan confirmed that the film is aiming for an R-rating. That was said to be one of Margot Robbie’s most adamant requests when pitching the film to Warner Bros.
Yan, the first female Asian director to ever helm a superhero film, went on to talk about landing the director’s chair, and her love of the script.
“I did my homework. I wouldn’t say it was easy, but it was relatively painless and straightforward. I immediately loved the script and it felt like something I could really do, and it felt very much like my own voice. I could not put the script down, it had so much dark humor to it which a lot of my work does, and there are themes of female empowerment which are so strong and relateable.
So I went in with, not with confidence, but at least a sense that I belonged in the room, that somehow magically in terms of timing and luck that this opportunity was open to me and I was definitely going to make the best of it.”
According to The Wrap, Rosie Perez (White Men Can’t Jump) will portray Detective Renee Montoya in the upcoming Birds of Prey film from director Cathy Yan. She joins Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Black Canary and Huntress, respectively, as well as Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
Renee Montoya was first introduced in Batman: The Animated Series and has gone to become quite the fan-favorite throughout DC Comics, eventually adopting the moniker of The Question. Birds of Prey hits theaters on February 7th, 2020.
Deadline is reporting that Fargo actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Underground‘s Jurnee Smollett-Bell have officially won the roles of Huntress and Black Canary, respectively in the upcoming DC Entertainment adaptation Birds of Prey. They join Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn in the project, being directed by Cathy Yan.
Birds of Prey hits theaters on February 7th, 2020, and is now a top priority for DC Entertainment as they look to soft reboot their shared universe alongside Supergirl.
The Wrap has confirmed that an earlier rumor regarding the lineup of director Cathy Yan’s upcoming Birds of Prey movie was fairly spot-on. The team’s lineup will consist of Black Canary, Huntress, Cassandra Cain, Renee Montoya, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. It’s currently not known whether Montoya will be The Question in the film, or a detective.
The villain of the piece is expected to be Cassandra Cain’s father, David Cain, who is commonly associated with Ra’s Al Ghul, and Cassandra’s mother, Lady Shiva. This all but confirms that Batgirl is not involved as many expected.
Warner Bros. has announced that it’s tapped up and coming director Cathy Yan to direct their live-action Birds of Prey film, according to Deadline, making her the first female Asian director ever tapped to direct a superhero film. The project features the return of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, but the rest of the group is still up in the air, though it’s likely that Batgirl was be introduced here, before her solo film.
The script was written by Christina Hodson, who we recently found out was also hired to pen the Batgirl movie after Joss Whedon’s departure. Birds of Prey is expected to begin production later this year.
