As you’re probably familiar with by now, Birds of Prey is currently undergoing reshoots. This follows a lot of negative press surrounding the film, with claims that Warner Bros. wasn’t pleased with the initial cut and that Ewan McGregor’s Black Mask could be portrayed as an offensive stereotype. Sticking to the facts, though, we don’t know exactly how extensive the reshoots will be, but We Got This Covered has heard of at least one thing that’ll be changed.
We’ve been informed by our sources that the reshoots will contain an additional scene at the end of the movie that will line it up with The Suicide Squad. Our intel doesn’t go so far as to say exactly what this sequence will be, but we can speculate that it’ll explain how Harley ends up back under the thumb of Amanda Waller and as part of Task Force X again in James Gunn’s upcoming sequel. Gunn himself did just heavily allude to Margot Robbie showing up in his film, after all.

It’d be ironic if Harl ends up back in prison by the end of the movie, though, as Birds of Prey seems to be all about the character enjoying her freedom, from both Belle Reve and the Joker. The overlong subtitle – (The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) – makes this clear, too. We’ve also previously confirmed that a brief cameo from the Clown Prince of Crime will occur to explain the couple’s break-up (though not with Jared Leto in the role).
Furthermore, our sources have already told us that Harley won’t be back for a Birds of Prey sequel, though one is in the works. Assuming the movie goes down well when it lands next February, that is. Hopefully, the reshoots – headed by John Wick director Chad Stahelski – will rectify WB’s issues with the pic. Either way, we’ll find out early next year. Until then, fingers remain crossed.
