What Is ‘Birds of Prey’?
Birds of Prey is an R-rated girls gang film that is set to hit the big screens in 2020. Apparently, it revolves around Harley Quinn. But not everything is about her because Harley’s character is so interactive and social that it can not be a standalone film.
After splitting up with The Joker, Harley Quinn gathers her female superheroes for her girl gang. Together with Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya, she saves the life of a little girl who was under threat from an evil crime lord. Right now, a lot about the film is not known. But one things for sure- Warner Bros is super thrilled to bring forward this unique female superhero movie.

Especially, in the field of action movies.

Joining Harley Quinn as Black Canary and Huntress will be actresses Smollett-Bell and Elizabeth Winstead respectively.

The devastated girl turned into a vigilante which eventually influenced her decision to join the Birds of Prey team.
