DID YOU KNOW?
The recent Birds of Prey movie trailer is not the first incarnation of the comic book series in media? The first form of media that's based on the comic is a TV show. A Birds of Prey TV series released in 2002 on The WB TV network. It ran from October 2002 to February 2003 with a total of 13 episodes. The show did not perform as well as the producers had hoped. This is due to the convoluted storyline and underwhelming performances from the actors.
The Suicide Squad movie back in 2016 was a theatrical bust. Harley Quinn's character played actress Margot Robbie was well received. In fact, she was the one that pitched the idea for the Birds of Prey movie to executives. She did not want a standalone movie for her character alone. Instead, she wanted it to be a girl-gang type of comic book movie. The 20-second teaser trailer for Gail Simone's Birds of Prey was well received. While short, it gave us a brief look at the movie will look like and complete cast. It even gave a mysterious shot of an unknown character that might be Oracle. Now is a good time to read up on the Birds of Prey comic before the movie comes out. There are plenty of options to read Birds of Prey online.
