Last month two new photo shoot images of Mary were released from the 100th special edition issue of Citizen K magazine and today, two more have been released. One of the inspirations for Mary during the session was going for a look modeled after Casablanca actress Ingrid Bergman. Head to the gallery to check out the full set!
The cast of Birds of Prey was interviewed by SciFi Now Magazine in Los Angeles a few months ago when they were filming the upcoming DC film. During their visit, they spoke to Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Black Canary), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), and Rosie Perez (Renee Montoya) as well as Chris Messina. Here are some of the highlights from the interview when they spoke to Mary who plays Huntress. You can read the full interview by visiting the gallery and clicking the pics below:
Mary also revealed that the film takes places within 24 hours and there’s something each character wants or needs so it adds a sense of urgency for all of them as to why they’re going to collide and work together. Getting along with the cast was easy for Mary who found them all “fun and funny and reverent and easy to be around.”
Finally, Mary had to do a lot of stunt training, weapons training, and discussed how she felt wearing her Huntress costume, where multiple versions of it will be seen throughout the film thanks to flashbacks:
I’m in quite a few different iterations of that look, and it was just great because they were all outfits that I could move in very easily. I was never in high heels or something so tight I couldn’t kick or roll or move in properly, and it was all very realistic in terms of being tactical…I felt very cool and very empowered, and I just really absolutely loved it.
There is a brand new cast interview in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, which you can check out in the gallery.
The final piece in the puzzle is the militant Huntress, dressed in fishnets, leather, and with braids in her hair. Born Helena Rosa Bertinelli, she is the daughter of a powerful mob boss. As a child, her family was murdered in front of her. She trains to become an assassin to avenge their deaths. Next on her list? Roman. Mary Elizabeth Winstead has always been reluctant to act in a comic-book franchise for fear of being oversexualised. “This was momentous,” she says of working with so many women. “It’s something that was denied to me for so long. It just wasn’t on the table.”
Margot, who is playing Harley Quinn and also producing the film, said that she’s having a hard time letting go of the characters and is already considering sequels or spin-off films for the other characters.

Earlier this week, I mentioned that the Birds of Prey cast was going to be interviewed for the upcoming film in Total Film Magazine and now thanks to Best Of Jurnee, I have added those scans into the gallery.
She thinks Huntress is an absolute badass, because anybody who can kill that effectively and be such a mess in the head with all that childhood trauma–that’s thrilling to Harley, so she loves Huntress.
Mary on working with Margot:
She’s incredibly smart and savvy. She has a real understanding of the whole picture. It’s not like, ‘this is the Harley show, and what’s going on with Harley.’ She’s thinking about every character, and every story beat, and if it’s working or not.
Mary on her Huntress costume:
I felt so cool. I felt totally empowered and feminine. But also, I was able to move. I was able to carry weapons. I was able to do other things that the Huntress could actually be doing. And so that felt great. There was never a moment where I was like, ‘I can’t do this stunt because my pants are too tight.
Thanks to MargotRobbieBR on Twitter, we have our first stand-alone still of Mary in Birds of Prey as her character, Huntress AKA Helena Bertinelli. Be sure to head to the gallery to check out the full-sized pic and remember to come back tomorrow to read the new Total Film scans where Mary and the rest of the cast and director Cathy Yan discuss the upcoming film, set to hit theaters on February 7, 2020.
I have added a few new photos of Mary from earlier this month when she visited CCXP in Brazil to promote Birds of Prey. You can view the new pics by clicking the thumbnails below or visiting the gallery. In related news, the upcoming film has officially been rated ‘R’ for strong language and violence throughout.

Finally, it has been revealed that Megan Thee Stallion and Normani will be collaborating on a new song for the upcoming ‘Birds of Prey’ soundtrack. Megan posted some photos from the video shoot which you can see here. Doja Cat is also confirmed to be on the soundtrack. She posted more photos from her video set here.
Total Film Magazine’s upcoming issue features the cast of Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on their latest cover and you can view the HQ images in the gallery! Check back this Friday for the full interview with the cast (including Mary!!) and more photos!
“It’s very much like the comic books where you pick up in a totally different place, and it doesn’t directly link to what happened before,” Robbie tells our sister publication Total Film magazine . “But at the same time it’s not such a leap that you’re like, ‘Oh, what’s going on?!'”
Director Cathy Yan adds that Birds of Prey is “definitely a standalone movie” with fleeting connections to Suicide Squad, such as Harley having the same mallet. “It was really fun to create our own movie, and to not feel like it had to be a sequel or a continuation of Suicide Squad,” she says.
As for if Birds will have a connection to the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel set for 2021, Margot said this:
“Tonally, David Ayer’s world looks different to [Birds’] world, which will look different to James’s world,” she says. “So, no, there’s not a direct connection. But like the comics, it doesn’t cancel out one or the other.”
Margot also said she really enjoyed working with her female co-stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez, Ella Jay Basco and [director] Cathy Yan:
We bonded in a different way. I think that there was an immediate understanding between the women. We could all recognise that, ‘This is sick. We’re the chicks, and we get to do this shit. This is awesome.’”
That ready-made connection may be crucial to the movie’s success, and it’s one Robbie said was already present early on: “We didn’t really need to work at finding a bond, because we kind of all clicked to begin with. And we also did chemistry reads beforehand. So we all bounced off each other quickly and easily.”
Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) hits theaters on February 7, 2020.
I have added two brand new photo shoot outtakes of Mary in HQ and you can view them both in the gallery. The gorgeous photos were taken by photographer Bruce Gilden.
Two new Birds of Prey posters have been released by Warner Bros and you can view them in the gallery! I’ve been loving all these new pics. They’re all so unique and very pretty!
