Birds of Prey Slated for February reports that Birds of Prey will follow in the footsteps of the highly-anticipated Wonder Woman 1984.

Wonder Woman 1984 hits theaters in early November 2019.

What we are hearing is that DC and the studio will be riding a massive wave of comic book girl power for a handful of months.

Another great factor is that Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad in Birds of Prey.

Let’s not forget that this is just one of several spin-offs involving the character that entered development in the wake of Suicide Squad’s financial success. Despite the film being highly criticized Harley Quinn is one of the most popular characters in the DCU.

Birds of Prey will center on a gang of female DC characters who team up to take down a common enemy. Aside from Harley Quinn, the movie will introduce the characters Black Canary and Helena Bertinelli, aka Huntress. Fans were surprised to learn that Barbara Gordon, the woman behind Batgirl, wasn’t going to be part of this project, especially considering that the studio is developing a solo movie for the character, which had Joss Whedon attached as writer/director for a time, MovieWeb reports.

Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs) has been tapped to direct the upcoming DC movie. The studio was dead set on getting a female director to helm the project and Yan bested the competition.

The movie’s working title during production will be Fox Force Five, a nice nod to Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.
