With Birds of Prey now a thing of the past, DCEU fans worry if a sequel will ever be made. Birds of Prey, which cost over $100 million, earned mostly positive reviews from critics but failed at the box office, making little more than $201.9 million worldwide. Birds of Prey, directed by Cathy Yan and written by Christina Hodson, recasts Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn for the first time since 2016’s Suicide Squad.
In Birds of Prey, Harley Quinn was unexpectedly freed from her bond to The Joker, and she later attracted the interest of bad boy Roman Zion (Ewan McGregor). When Gotham City criminal Black Mask ordered the assassination of Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), Harley Quinn and the rest of the gang sought vengeance with the assistance of Detective Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez). In Birds of Prey, Mary Elizabeth Winstead played Helena Bertinelli, aka Huntress, Jurnee Smollett played Dinah Laurel Lance, aka Black Canary, and Chris Messina played Black Mask’s ruthless henchman Victor Zsasz.
The newest Birds of Prey episode revealed why the titular characters decided to create an official combat group. And the two major villains didn’t fare well in the film, with one surviving the other before being attacked by Harley and her companions. Unfortunately, a year after the release of Birds of Prey, DC has not confirmed the existence of a sequel, and actor Robbie has also discounted the notion.
When will Birds of Prey 2 release?
Since Birds of Prey 2 has yet to be greenlit until the summer of 2021, it is difficult to envision it arriving soon, especially given the DCEUs. The plan for the future years is nearly finalized. However, if the Black Canary spin-off goes well on HBO Max, Warner Bros. should reconsider creating Birds of Prey two now rather than later. As a result, it may be released in mid-2022.
Who will be casting for Birds of Prey 2?
Margot Robbie is a big Harley Quinn fan and served as a producer on Birds of Prey, so she’ll most likely be back. The remainder of the cast is anticipated to return, including Jurnee Smollet-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez, and Ella Jay Basco. Unfortunately, Roman Sionis, played by Ewan McGregor, was blown up at the conclusion of the film, so he’s unlikely to return, though Gotham City has no lack of villains to fill his shoes.
Cathy Yan has shown interest in including Poison Ivy in the sequel. As a result, the film may center on her relationship with Harley Quinn, as well as the intriguing interplay between her and the rest of the Birds of Prey.
What’s the plotline for Birds of Prey 2?
Harley Quinn and her squad beat Black Mask and Victor Zsasz in the last episode of Birds of Prey. Cassandra Cain, in particular, plays an important role, resulting in the formation of the Birds of Prey organization, which comprises Huntress, Black Canary, and Montoya.
In contrast, Harley Quinn joins forces with Cassandra for another adventure. The first film’s characters may return for a sequel, but the focus will most likely be on the newly established three-woman gang sans Harley and Cassandra.
What’s the trailer?
There is currently no trailer available. Birds of Prey’s first trailer was published in October 2019, and the film premiered in February 2020. Expect a similar wait between the publication of the two Birds of Prey trailers and the actual release of the film.
