This week has been an interesting one when it comes to news for Birds of Prey, the upcoming Harley Quinn team-up movie. The film is reportedly gearing up for production to start in early 2019 and while there's been no casting information as of yet, star Margot Robbie has revealed that the cast for the film will be diverse.
In the DC Comics Universe, the Birds of Prey are an all-female hero group founded by Batgirl (Barbara Gordon using the codename Oracle at the time), Black Canary, and Huntress. Since that original iteration, there have been many others who have cycled on and off the team and it hasn't always been heroes, either. Jade Canary, perhaps better known as Lady Shiva, notably took Dinah Lance/Black Canary's place on the team during "One Year Later". Margot Robbie said: "I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, 'Harley needs friends.’ Harley loves interacting with people, so don't ever make her do a standalone film. She’s got to be with other people, it should be a girl gang. I wasn't seeing enough girl gangs on screen, especially in the action space. So that was always a big part of it." ___________________________________
