Margot Robbie posted this image on Instagram which has been confirmed as the formal title for the the movie, so prepare yourself for

Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)


The cast so far is;

Mary Elizabeth Winstead as the Helena Bertinelli/Huntress
Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Dinah Lance/Black Canary
Rosie Perez as GCPD Detective Renee Montoya
Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain

I didn't know it had been announced that Ewan McGregor will be the villain, as Black Mask, which could be interesting.

The storyline is that apparently after breaking up with the Joker, Harley gets involved with the three heroes in saving Cassandra Cain from some plan the Black Mask has.

Writer is Christina Hodson (Who wrote the forthcoming Bumblebee movie, which actually looks to be a FUN TF film, and will be writing Batgirl)

My own choice for Cassandra Cain would've been to get a stupendous Asian martial artist and worry about acting skills (and, indeed, about English should that be a consideration) later; my specific headcanon was Jeeja Yanin, on the strength of her performance in Chocolate, about a nonverbal autistic savant who learns martial arts from the movies and gets embroiled in a gang war:

But we'll see how things work out.

I really, really, really wish Harley Quinn was not involved in any way whatsoever.
The only way I'll really be okay with that is if she actually acknowledges that she was responsible for doing some terrible things and actually displays some guilt for her actions. Because if she just gets to act zany and random after spending years at the side of a terrorist and child killer, it will just reinforce everything I hate about her in the comics.

I haven't been the least bit impressed by their plans for Cass, but we'll see, I guess.

At the very least, that kind of subtitle does not seem like a cookie cutter studio movie, so there's the potential for it to be interesting if nothing else.

It has me wondering if the whole movie going to be framed as Harley telling the story, Luis-from-Ant-Man-style.

I'm actually pretty hyped for this *____* (Well, I'm hyped by default by DCEU projects and then either end up disappointed or validated, to varying degrees.)

I like the handwriting in that cover so much that I went ahead and imitated it just becauseā€¦

You have no Batman, you have no Superman, so no...not interested in any other projects until the two most popular characters in comics are done right. I love Cass, and it's good to see her get some shine, but this is backwards as hell.

Still going back and forth whether this title means DCEU Harley is going to break up with the Joker or not. Could go either way at this point, I guess.
