Fresh off the reveal of the artistic new poster for ‘Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)‘ comes a series of seven character posters, each showcasing one of the film’s stars– Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Ewan McGregor as Roman Sionis/Black Mask, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Rosie Perez as Renée Montoya, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Dinah Lance/Black Canary, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Helena Bertinelli/The Huntress.

Like the group poster, there seem to be little clues hidden in each image that hint at the contents of the film. Check them out below:
As you can see, it appears that the posters all fit together to form one long picture, with Black Canary first, followed by Huntress, Harley, Cassandra, Montoya, Zsasz, and Sionis. And actually if you look at the bottom of the Sionis poster, on the right you see the graffiti-style illustrations of eyes, which also appear on the left side of the Black Canary poster, so it’s like they start all over again in a loop. Pretty neat, huh?
A lot of the imagery is repeated from the group poster, which you can see here, just for comparison:
The red Chinese lanterns are repeated, but the Cassandra poster also shows what looks like a Chinese-style phone booth. Also shown is the woman’s face/mask which was seen in the second trailer and looks to be the entrance to a carnival, which is also teased by the Ferris Wheel.
There are also return appearances by Harley’s pet hyena and the mysterious tutu-wearing beaver, that first popped up in the group poster.
Other images seem to simply hint at the characters. Black Canary’s poster shows a microphone stand with a golden (not black) canary perched on it. Huntress’ poster features arrows. Harley’s has grenades with lipstick kisses on them. Cassandra is surrounded by jewels and it is believed that in the movie she comes into possession of a valuable artifact that Victor Zsasz will do anything to acquire. Renee Montoy is both holding and standing beside brass knuckles, trimmed with pink fur.
