After months and months of waiting, only getting teasers and poster releases. We finally have our first full-length trailer for the female focused DC superhero movie Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) has released its first trailer.

Let’s just say that we stan.

The trailer, which you can view below, is the type of badass, amazing female-fronted superhero film that we’ve been dying for since Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel. Also Harley (Margot Robbie) has gotten away from gross Jared Leto Joker and is ready to live her best life. What does she do? She teams up with a bunch of other BAMF ladies to take down a crime lord and save a kid.

We are here for it.

Birds of Prey also stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, and Ewan McGregor as the villainous Black Mask. The film is directed by Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs) from a script written by Christina Hodson (Bumblebee).

The Birds of Prey is traditionally group comprised of women on the heroic spectrum (traditionally Black Canary, Huntress, Catwoman with Oracle at the command). There was a short lived live-action show when there was a WB network (you can watch on the CW and Ashley Scott aka Huntress will appear in Crisis On Infinite Earths) along with appearances in animated media (there was a banned episode featuring them on Batman: The Brave and the Bold and the song is a bop). That’s not to mention their appearances in comics over the years.

Birds of Prey will be released on Feb. 7, 2020 in the US. Based on the trailer, we can’t wait for it to come.
