CM Podcast 247 – Birds of Prey (2020)

Is it okay if I refer to the movie as Birds of Prey? Okay, for the rest of this post, the movie will be known as Birds of Prey.

If you don’t know, Birds of Prey has been going through an identity crisis over the last week since it has been released. Prior to February 7th, 2020, the movie was known as…

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation on One Harley Quinn

Here are some of the posters that were released for the movie…

After February 7th, I guess there was a group of people that did not know that Harley Quinn was in the movie. I can totally understand this. I mean, just look at those posters – they barely have Harley Quinn in any of them.

So the marketing geniuses at Warner Bros. Pictures decided to remame the movie…

Harley Quinn: The Birds of Prey

That is a perfect and succinct description in a title so there is no doubt that all your favorite characters from the DCEU are in this movie.

Now if this fails to draw the people into the theaters, then they are going with their 3rd revision of the title…

Batman and The Outsiders

Anyway, whatever you are calling this movie by the time of this post – we recommend that you run out and see this movie! It is a funny, fast paced, colorful crime heist that features some lesser know characters from the DC Universe (like Harley Quinn).

Jon and I review the movie – spoiler alert: WE BOTH LIKE IT ALOT! We talk about the original comic and the comic book versions of the characters and who well they translated to the movie. We give credit to Ewan McGregor for playing the not so well known, Black Mask and making it his own. We then reveal the Guardians of the Galaxy/Birds of Prey connection that you did not know existed until now and we end on the “nontroversy” of why its okay to have an all female cast of stars in a superhero movie.
