Harley Quinn is looking to play a big part in the future of The Worlds of DC. With her next team-up adventure following 2016’s Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) going into production soon, the powers-that-be at Warner Bros are already looking at what the future holds for the character Margot Robbie has made so famous.
According to our very own DanielRPK, WB is looking into building a universe surrounding the doctor formerly known as Harleen Quinzel in which she will be a part of two separate all-female superhero ensembles, Birds of Prey and Gotham City Sirens, ending with the two teams coming head-to-head.
While Birds of Prey is still in its infancy, take this rumor with a grain of salt but the idea of a huge, all-female, live-action superhero film is one too exciting to not daydream about. In the comics, the Birds of Prey feature heroes like Batgirl and the Huntress while the Gotham City Sirens include Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. Both teams walk the narrow edge of good and evil so it will be interesting to see what the creative forces at WB do to create conflict between the two groups.
If nothing else, this rumor means that WB and DC are serious about bringing some of their iconic female characters to life on the big screen, which is a win for comic book and film fans alike.
Margot Robbie is already serving as the executive producer of Birds of Prey and is notably adamant about bringing the many stories about Quinn from the comics to life.
What do you think? Can you get on board with a series of Harley Quinn films featuring a bevy of female heroes from the pages of the DC Universe? Let us know in the comments below and @superbromovies. – Christian Hubbard
