In the film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), Harley is serious Committed to causing as much trouble as she can. Outside the world of fiction, this film has also shown to have a certain controversial air due to the fact that it will feature an openly homosexual character. Additionally, everything indicates that Black Mask, villain of the story, will also have a romantic relationship with Victor Zsasz, his henchman Regarding this, the interpreter of Zsasz, Chris Messina, declared that the link between these characters was not in the script.
During a recent interview with slash movie, Messina explained that the deep relationship that can be seen between Roman Sinois, aka Black Mask, and Victor Zsasz was a decision he and Ewan McGregor made while working on the film. Although there is nothing explicitly romantic between the two, it is impossible to deny that there is definitely something floating in the air.
“I made the decision to be obsessed with Roman and to obsess over things like his clothes, his style, his power, his money. These characters are a bit shakespeareans in a certain way. For example, you can go see Hamlet year after year and see a different performance each time. This was my interpretation. Maybe there are other movies and someone will make them completely different. Anthony Kerrigan did it in Gotham and it was wonderful. Just like what we see from Batman, from Joker, it’s very vast.”
For her part, the producer of the tape, Sue Kroll, commented that the nature of the relationship between Zsasz and Black Mask is open to the interpretation of the audience. In addition, it focuses above all on the love of power. “His sexuality, Roman’s sexuality, has never been a theme in our film. What they have is a very interesting dynamic where they feed off each other, and they obviously have a lot of fun. But Roman’s motivation is control and power. He is narcissistic and crazy, very crazy. And Zsasz is his henchman and this is what they (McGregor and Messina) have to decide how to play. But I can tell you that there is never anything explicit. Her sexuality was not a topic that was discussed in our story.”
By contrast, during a preliminary interview Ewan McGregor had already confirmed that his character in birds of prey he did have a homosexual bent. When asked if Black Mask and Victor Zsasz were in a romantic relationship, the actor explained, “It’s very complicated, their relationship is based on… there’s a lot of need and desire, that’s for sure. But yes, most likely yes, “he explained.
For its part, birds of prey is currently showing in theaters.
