It seems in the buildup to San Diego Comi-Con we are getting all kinds of news regarding DC’s upcoming films. Today thanks to a recent report we finally know the lineup of Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey. Robbie is set to not only produce the film but will reprise her fan-favorite character, Harley Quinn. But she will not be along as she will be joined by a number of female heroes and villains.
According to TheWrap, the film is set to feature many fan-favorite DC characters including Black Canary, Huntress, Cassandra Cain, and Renee Montoya. The report included a breakdown of each character giving us some new background into their story.
-Black Canary, aka Dinah Laurel, is a fantastic hand-to-hand combatant who comes from a family of crime fighters. Her father, Larry Lance, was a police officer, while her mother (also named Dinah) was the original Black Canary.
-Helena Bertinelli, aka Huntress, is a vigilante operating out of Gotham City.
-Cassandra Cain is one of the world’s greatest martial artists, and also a vigilante.
-Renee Montoya is a detective working for the Gotham City Police Department. Montoya is openly lesbian, and during The New 52 comics she takes on a costumed identity, becoming the Question.
It will be interesting to see all of these characters come together on screen alongside Robbie’s Harley Quinn. The report also revealed that the protagonist will face off against a Batman villain who has never appeared on the big screen. Batman has one of the most extensive Rogues Gallery of any superhero so this will be very interesting who they ultimately choose to appear in Birds of Prey.
It is great to finally have some details about the film and we can only hope there is more to come this week with San Diego Comic-Con. So make sure to stay tuned to SuperBroMovies for any updates.
