Easter Eggs You Missed In Birds Of Prey
Both Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey have a not-that long yet pretty storied history in the DC universe, and the Margot Robbie-led flick pays tribute to both if you’re paying attention.
Birds of Prey is all about Harley Quinn’s big breakup with Mr. J, but the Clown Prince of Crime isn’t Harley’s only ex. As Birds of Prey’s animated prologue explains, Harley’s heart was broken a number of times before she hooked up with the Joker.
However, Harley’s one true love isn’t a homicidal clown. It’s Poison Ivy, the botanist turned eco terrorist who’s proven to be quite a thorn in Batman’s side.
In the comics, Harley and Ivy are a very popular pairing, and Birds of Prey knows it. That’s likely why the female face that turns up on the prologue’s cartoon slot machine looks a heck of a lot like Pamela Isley. While it’s not definitively Poison Ivy, it’s pretty obvious that Harley has a type.
Birds of Prey isn’t a direct sequel to Suicide Squad, the movie that introduced Robbie’s Harley Quinn to the big screen, but it clearly takes place in the same universe. While grocery shopping with Cassandra Cain, Harley recaps her story, and summarizes the events of her earlier film. A few shots from Suicide Squad reappear in, or were recreated for, Birds of Prey, when Harley flashes back to her origin story.
That connection opens the door to one of Birds of Prey’s best Easter eggs. While breaking into the Gotham City Police Department in order to free Cassandra Cain, Harley catches sight of a “Wanted” poster on the wall.
You might recognize that man if you’ve seen Suicide Squad. The man on the poster is none other than Jai Courtney, who played Harley’s teammate Captain Boomerang in David Ayer’s superhero flick. The DCEU may not be as interconnected as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but little links like these are always nice, especially considering that Boomerang is expected to come back in James Gunn’s upcoming Suicide Squad film. With a name like that, how could you expect anything different? Keep watching the video to see all the Easter eggs you missed in Birds of Prey!
