Warner Bros. Sets Release Date for DC’s Birds of Prey

DC has a multitude of film projects in development at various stages, but one has moved closer to fruition. Warner Bros. has set a release date for Birds of Prey.

While the film doesn’t have an official title yet, the Margot Robbie starring vehicle is set to debut February 7, 2020. Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad, with other female characters like Black Canary, Huntress, Renee Montoya, and Cassandra Cain set to appear. Cathy Yan will direct with filming expected to begin in early 2019.

Suicide Squad was not met with the type of critical reception Warner Bros. was hoping for, but most agree that Robbie’s Harley Quinn was the breakout character.  It makes sense the studio would want to capitalize on that and producing a female-focused team up comic book film offers them the ability to do something unique in the ever present genre.
