The like silence that follows a mighty roar, the conclusion of Avengers Endgame and it’s spectacular epilogue Spider-Man: Far From Home have seemingly left a vacuum in the onslaught of superhero movies.
And we all know… that nature abhors a void.
But fear not! DC comics and Warner Brothers pictures are all too happy fill this void with the Joker standalone movie, Birds of Prey and the upcoming Suicide Squad 2.
While my personal jury is still out on if I will like a Joker movie with no Batman, I have to say I’m actually quite pumped for Birds of Prey. I even love the elongated title. Margot Robbie was one the only bright spot outside of the Batman cameos in the dumpster fire that was Suicide Squad and I’m eager to see how she has grown into the character after dumping the dead weight of Jared Leto’s “Mr. J”.
The next few characters I’m REALLY looking forward to seeing on the big screen is The Huntress played by Mary-Elizabeth Winsted and Black Canary played by Jurnee Smollett-Bell. I’ve been a huge fan for years and even though they didn’t really show that much of them in action using their powers in the trailer, I’m keeping the dream alive that they are saving the best bits for the next few trailers and TV spots.
Oh! And it’s R-Rated too??? Count me in.
Birds of Preyis scheduled to be released in the United States on February 7, 2020, by Warner Bros. Pictures.

The official picture for suicide squad has been dropped by Geoff Johns on Twitter, and it has been most positive to mixed in reactions.
This picture included Slipknot, Katana, Enchantress, Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn, Rick Flag, Deadshot, Killer Croc and El Diablo.
The squad has that dark DC cinematic look, and my favourite look surprisingly is Will Smith’s Deadshot which David Ayer tweeted out later on
He has that classic Deadshot look with an edge by changing the placement of the eye thing (my mind couldn’t recall what it was called) and changing the classic costume a tad, it added something new that can even satisfy the hardcore fanboy.
I have no doubt about Will Smith’s talent so fingers cross writing and direction will do him justice.
The most mixed reactions has been of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. This has been mainly coming from the minority comic book fans who…
