BIRDS OF PREY Set Video Features An Unexpected Alliance Between Black Canary And [SPOILER]

A new video from the set of Birds of Prey has found its way online featuring Dinah Lance, Cassandra Cain, and...well, someone you wouldn't expect to be working with the former. Read on for details...

In this new Birds of Prey set video, we see Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) being arrested by the Gotham City Police Department before Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and Victor Zsasz (Chris Messina) arrive moments too late to rescue (?) the youngster. 

What's really interesting about the video is the fact that Dinah Lance appears to be working with Zsasz at this point in the movie. Considering the fact that the hitman is aligned with the villainous Black Mask, you have to wonder whether she's undercover or if it's possible she starts off on the side of the bad guys.

Regardless, the video provides at least some clues as we hear Cassandra shouting "I didn't do it!" before Canary arrives and drops and F-Bomb as Victor adds, "I gave her to you!" 



Another possible theory is that Zsasz ends up working with the Birds of Prey but with so little known about the movie as of right now, it's very difficult to figure out what this could mean. Due to the inclusion of that F-Bomb, though, it's hard not to wonder if Warner Bros. is indeed targeting an R-Rating for the DC Comics adaptation. We'll have to wait and see.

hi-res screenshots from the Birds of Prey footage reveal!



This is obviously Harley Quinn and it's good to see her trademark mallet here. I may be wrong about this, but have some of the tattoos on the back of her legs been removed since Suicide Squad?
 


Huntress has her crossbow here and that's obviously going to make a lot of comic book fans happy seeing as it's something she's always used in the source material. 
 


Is this Renee Montoya? If so, here's hoping Birds of Prey avoids taking us down the route of seeing a cop with a drinking problem because that's been done to death in countless movies over the years.
 


Well, Cassandra Cain certainly seems to have some issues as it really doesn't look like she's particularly popular if those insults were written by "friends."  She may have decorated it herself, though.
 


As good as it is to see Harley wielding that baseball bat, she's rocking a totally different costume here. This could be her new look throughout the movie or just one of many different outfits.
 


Based on what we see here, it definitely appears as if this version of Black Canary is going to be inspired by the New 52/Rebirth era versions but, as we see later, she does have fishnets...on her arms!
 


Well, Huntress definitely looks like a badass but her mask is nowhere to be seen and while there's a chance she'll suit up later on in the movie, Birds of Prey seems to be going for a grounded aesthetic.
 


This doesn't tell us much about Renee Montoya, but the character is expected to play a key role in the movie and it will be interesting to see how she's handled as there's a lot to pick from the comics.
 


Meet the Black Mask...minus the black mask! He certainly looks like a gangster and seeing as this is just a test video/cast reveal, there's nothing to say he won't don his skeletal visage at some point.
 


Huntress takes aim. Little is known about how this version of the character will differ from the source material, but she's unlikely to be Catwoman's daughter! 
 


This is Victor Zsasz, a classic Batman villain who covers his body with scars for every kill. We don't see any of those here but he definitely bears something of a resemblance to the comic book version.
 

 


Two more fairly unrevealing shots, but the second definitely gives us an idea of how Black Canary will be portrayed. After seeing so much of her on TV, I do wonder how her powers will differ visually.
 


A lot of fans are definitely going to be disappointed if Black Mask doesn't don his classic headpiece, as it really wouldn't be that hard to include. 
 


Cassandra Cain sounds like she will be the "MacGuffin" of Birds of Prey in the sense that the team will be trying to save her from Black Mask. Why she's so important hasn't been revealed yet, though. 
 


Well, he definitely looks like a psycho, right? 
 

 

 


This could prove to be a somewhat divisive take on Harley Quinn, especially among those hoping for a comic accurate costume. This is bound to be just one of many costumes in the movie, though!
