Birds of Prey Photo and Video Released"). Over December and January, DC will release four trade paperback collections and a Dollar Comic version of the original first issue, which will join the new ongoing series written by Brian Azzarello launching in October (see "The Birds Are Back Back In Town--New 'Birds of Prey' Series").
The Birds of Prey film features the return of Margot Robbie to the Harley Quinn role. She first portrayed Quinn in the 2016 Suicide Squad, a movie ill-received by the critics but that won praise for Robbie’s performance. The 2020 release will also feature Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Huntress), Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Black Canary), Rosie Perez (Renee Montoya), Ewan McGregor (Black Mask) and Chris Messina (Victor Zsasz). Robbie is expected to return to the Harley Quinn role at least three more times, in Suicide Squad 2 (see "'Fillion in Suicide Squad'") and the announced films Joker/Harley Quinn Project (title TBD) and Gotham City Sirens.
Birds of Prey first appeared in Black Canary/Oracle: Birds of Prey #1 (June 1996), featuring former Batgirl Barbara Gordon in her new role as Oracle, and Black Canary, with the Huntress joining the team later. The regular series began in 1999, running 127 issues. There were two more tries at an ongoing series, and a TV series that lasted 13 episodes in 2002 (see "Birds of Prey Lose Altitude").
