Birds Of Prey poster screams gay rights
Finally! Warner Brothers Entertainment. And DC released an official poster for Birds Of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn) one thing I noticed is there’s many people in the movie who are members of the LGBTQ+ community, and the poster doesn’t hide them. I’m Liam from Animated Times and today I’m going to discuss the latest installment of the DC Extended Universe (not included joker)
Beyond The Trailer host Grace Randolph recently stated that Black Mask will be “Flamboyantly” gay, she also described a crazy plot but trust me that’s for another day. Harley Quinn herself also had an on and off romance with Poison Ivy, And apparently Black Mask will flirt with multiple men. Although the poster is unique it reminded me of another Female led poster, Wonder Woman 1984 looks incredibly similar. When I say ‘Similar’ (view poster online) you should pay attention to the background more specifically the colours of the background. They look extremely similar right? Although Wonder Woman could introduce a gay/lesbian character it’s also unlikely as 1984 was a very different time then now, However Stranger Things season 3 introduced Robin, played by Maya Hawk the character came out as a Lesbian. Both posters also glorify the LGBTQ+ flag, which is nice for big comic book movies to take notice of such things. Both Wonder Woman and Birds Of Prey’s posters trended on Twitter. DC has also been Pro-LGBT on the small screen, with Batwoman marking television history as the first openly lesbian to lead in a Superhero Series, Supergirl also introduced the first Transgender Superhero.
“After splitting with the Joker, Harley Quinn joins superheroes Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya to save a young girl from an evil crime lord, Black Mask in Gotham City.”
