“Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it.
When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.
Get ready for Birds of Prey, in cinemas February 7, with our character breakdown!
HARLEY QUINN (Margot Robbie)
She’s the recently liberated (i.e. thrown-out-on-her-ass) girlfriend of The Joker, presently wanted dead by just about every lowlife in Gotham City. A lover of unusual pets, eater of egg sandwiches and teller of tall tales (like this one), the “anti-heroine” of the film is a loveable psycho whose dirty deeds are driven by a pure-ish heart.
HUNTRESS (Mary Elizabeth Winstead)
Daughter of one of the richest mafia dons in Gotham before he and the rest of the family tree were killed by rivals. She’s out for revenge against her family’s killers, who are now part of mob boss Roman Sionis’ gang. Deadly accurate, her weapon of choice is a crossbow.
BLACK CANARY (Jurnee Smollett-Bell)
The mysterious siren is mob boss Roman Sionis’ favourite lounge singer at his club Black Mask by night, and his driver by day. Still sorting out her strengths from her superpowers, one thing’s for sure: this songbird’s got a killer voice.
RENEE MONTOYA (Rosie Perez)
She’s the smartest detective in the Gotham PD but gets no respect from her male colleagues. She’s well aware of who Harley Quinn is in the crime world, though their paths have yet to cross. Renee is the first to figure out mobster Roman Sionis is consolidating his interests, but she’s the last cop they’ll listen to. Her intense approach on the job often gets in her way – she’ll do whatever it takes even if it isn’t in her own (or others’) best interests.
VICTOR ZSASZ (Chris Messina)
Mob boss Roman Sionis’ right-hand man who’s especially handy with a switchblade. His bleached-out hair and black eyes front a muscular slice of prime evil. Let’s just say he likes his job.
CASSANDRA CAIN (Ella Jay Basco)
Twelve years old, Cass is a smart-mouthed street kid surviving on her own – thanks in part to her knack for pickpocketing. But when her sticky fingers nab a priceless gem, she becomes a target for real trouble, and only a certain loveable psycho can save her.
ROMAN SIONIS (Ewan McGregor)
A blue-blood mobster bent on cutting out the competition and consolidating the rest, he holds court in his own Gotham nightclub, the Black Mask, where he serves as gentleman, judge and jury.
