In the photo below are Harley Quinn, the Huntress, Black Canary, and Cassandra Cain (Batgirl) in costume for the movie.  Can you figure out who is who?

And here's the trailer.

Ewan McGregor is playing Black Mask.  There seems to be one basic detail of the character, included in his name, that they decided to ignore.

Probably Huntress.

Batgirl isn’t in this.

Batgirl as in Cassandra Cain. Huntress is Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell is Black Canary. Rosie Perez is Renee Montoya.

I really love the casting of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. It's just too bad her costumes have been pulled from the video games, and the movies she's been used in are weak.

If they really needed a teenaged Asian girl sidekick, I wish they would have used Sin instead of Cassie. As cliche as "young girl trained in seclusion to become assassin" has become, I'd still be interested in seeing her on-screen, and it looks like they aren't going that route. Plus Sin has stronger ties to Birds of Prey.

For you. Not for the millions of civilians the filmmakers want to lure into darkened theaters.

The casting alone makes me want to avoid this. I like Jurnee Smollett-Bell, but why change Black Canary's race? The outfits are horrible. Street clothes, not costumes. NONE of the characters except Harley are recognizable.

Not a fan of Rosie Perez outside of some of her older roles, like WHITE MEN CAN'T JUMP. So that's an extra reason to avoid. 

I am not exactly looking forward to the new SUICIDE SQUAD, either. I do like Idris Elba replacing Will Smith as Deadshot and some of the other casting, but not the choice of characters. Polka Dot Man? Really?!

My info was outdated. Apparently he may be playing a different character, not Deadshot. But the role hasn't been revealed. At least that's the most recent information that I could find.
