If the protracted title of Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is anything to go by, then Margot Robbie’s character is set to be the star of Cathy Yan’s upcoming flick. But seeing how this is still a team-up movie, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear that the DC feature may end up doing what cinematic universe films are supposed to do and spawn a few spinoffs.
According to sources close to We Got This Covered, Warner Bros. is developing solo movies for Huntress, Black Canary and Cassandra Cain that could be going into production if Birds of Prey proves a big enough hit at the box office. Additionally, it’s said that Rosie Perez’s character Renee Montoya could be getting the same treatment, too, though this possibility is deemed less likely.
For those unfamiliar with the property, next year’s release will see Cassandra Cain, played by the young Ella Jay Basco, in need of saving from crime lord Black Mask, prompting Harley to team up with Renee Montoya, Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Black Canary to come to her aid.
Given how many DC features are said to be in development right now – from a Blue Beetle movie, to a Zatanna flick, to that Green Lantern Corps film we keep hearing about – it’s best not to take any of these potential spinoffs as a done deal, but if The Trench from Aquaman can land their own project, then surely at least one of Harley’s new friends can garner enough fan support to go solo, too, right?
Regardless, we’ll find out if any of the team leaves us wanting more when Birds of Prey hits theaters on February 7th, 2020.
