Suicide Squad

RUMOR: Solo ‘Harley Quinn’ Movie Will Feature Multiple Female DC Heroes/Villains Source: Warner Bros

While Suicide Squad didn’t get very good reviews from critics, Margot Robbie’s performance as femme fatale Harley Quinn received near universal acclaim, to the point where Warner Bros. is trying to get a solo movie off the ground. That film is still a ways off, but according to a new report from ScreenGeek [via The Wrap], it’s going to much more than a Harley Quinn story. In fact, it looks like it’s going to a Birds of Prey film.

Birds of Prey is a set of stories focused on key female superheroes and villains from DC Comics. While no names have yet been confirmed, it’s a safe bet that the likes of Catwoman, Black Canary, Poison Ivy, and Batgirl will make appearances in the film. This could be a great way to introduce more female characters into the DC Extended Universe without having to shoehorn them into other movies, such as the upcoming solo Batman movie.

The film’s script is currently being worked on by newcomer Christina Hodson, while Robbie’s production company LuckyChap Entertainment is helping produce.
