The first official trailer for the forthcoming DC film Birds of Prey was debuted on Tuesday, and it follows Harley Quinn as she teams up with Black Canary, the Huntress, and Renee Montoya to save Cassandra Cain from Gotham City crime lord Black Mask. The film stars Margot Robbie as Quinn, who is reprising the role from 2016's Suicide Squad. 

The trailer shows Quinn dealing with her breakup with Joker, as she recruits women who go on to become the 'Birds of Prey'.

"You know what a harlequin is? A harlequin's role is to serve. It's nothin without a master," Quinn can be seen saying in the very beginning of the trailer.

"No one gives two s--s who we are beyond that," she continues as she takes a shot.

"The Joker and I broke up," she explains in the trailer, adding "I wanted a fresh start. But it turns out I wasn't the only dame in Gotham looking for emancipation."
