New Harley Quinn & Black Mask Connection Spotted In Latest ‘Birds Of Prey’ Trailer

A brand new connection between Harley Quinn and Black Mask may have been spotted in the latest Birds of Prey trailer.

The internet was set aflame last week when the final Birds of Prey trailer arrived online, giving us a better, more focused look at the plot as well as a solid look at Black Mask. The trailer is fast-paced and features various “blink and you’ll miss it” moments that add to the ever-expanding DC Extended Universe. One of these little tidbits may have just given us a reason as to why Black Mask is so hell-bent on hunting down Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey.

In the Birds of Prey trailer, Harley Quinn is seen driving a truck straight into Ace Chemicals, which then blows up. However, an eagle-eyed Reddit user noticed that the gate guarding Ace Chemicals says “Janus Corp,” which is a corporation owned by Roman Sionis, a.k.a Black Mask. The user suggests that Ace Chemicals is a subsidiary of Black Mask’s corporation, which gives the villain a reason to chase down Harley Quinn. You can check out the Reddit post that gives potential meaning to Harley Quinn and Black Mask’s beef below.

The Birds of Prey trailer doesn’t give an explicit reason as to why Black Mask is after Harley Quinn, so this is a very interesting theory put forth. Seeing as Birds of Prey is one of the more low-key films to be introduced into the DCEU, the theory put forth would make sense as Ace Chemicals is a Gotham staple and to rebuild the facility would cost millions upon millions of dollars. After all, Black Mask is Roman Sionis first and foremost, one of the more ruthless businessmen in Gotham City.

What are your thoughts on this theory? Are you excited to see Harley Quinn and Black Mask in Birds of Prey? Comment below and let us know!

Here is the official synopsis for Harley Quinn’s Birds of Prey:

“You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.”

Directed by Cathy Yan from a script penned by Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Ewan McGregor as Black Mask, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Ali Wong, Robert Catrini, and Michael Masini have also been cast in undisclosed roles.

Birds of Prey will be released in theaters on February 7, 2020.
