Birds Of Prey: 10 Major New Details Revealed During The Press Tour

Why isn't the Joker in the movie? And when will Poison Ivy make her DCEU debut?

Warner Bros./DC Comics

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is just days away from arriving in cinemas and excitement for the next DC Comics movie is definitely starting to rise. With an R-Rating and a tone which looks more in line with Shazam! than the likes of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, the movie appears to be another step in the right direction for the DC Extended Universe.

As is the norm for big budget blockbusters like Birds of Prey, the cast and crew have spent the past few weeks touring the world and taking part in interviews to promote Harley Quinn's latest big screen adventure. With that comes some big reveals both about this film and future stories set in this (mostly) shared world.

We've now rounded up the most noteworthy, including behind the scenes, secrets and updates on characters who could appear in a possible sequel. There's even intel on how Birds of Prey links to both 2016's Suicide Squad and James Gunn's upcoming reboot/follow-up, not to mention an explanation for Jared Leto's Joker being absent from proceedings.

In many ways, it seems Birds of Prey has flown under the radar in a year full of major Marvel and DC releases, but this all proves that it's one that you shouldn't let pass you by...
