Birds of Prey movie sets 2020 release date

Warner Bros. announced Monday that the untitled female superhero film will hit theaters February 7, 2020.

Margot Robbie's Birds of Prey movie is taking flight. Together, they'll take on crime lord Black Mask, a Batman villain known for his sadism and in some versions of the character, mind control.

Robbie herself was the springboard for the project, having fallen for the pantheon of DC's female characters in her extensive research for the role of Harley Quinn.

Directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodgson, Birds of Prey stars Margot Robbie.


Reports surfaced last week that several actresses tested with Robbie including Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jurnee Smolett-Bell, Margaret Qualley and Cristin Milioti. Whatever the results of the casting process, it's clear WB is gunning for a diverse cast - which is great!

The Birds of Prey are a mostly female superhero team whose ranks in the DC source material has included Oracle/Batgirl, Black Canary, Huntress, Catwoman, Hawkgirl, Power Girl, Poison Ivy, Vixen, and Katana (Karen Fukuhara), who appeared opposite Harley in Suicide Squad. There's an untitled Disney live-action title slated for February 14 - oh, and MGM's Bond 25 - and now Birds of Prey nests on the first weekend in February, which will include such competition as Sony's Peter Rabbit 2 and Paramount's animated feature The Loud House. Of course, it's unlikely that toxic male DC fans - like those who chased former DC president Diane Nelson off Twitter today for daring to not grovel at Zack Snyder's feet - will make a dent in the movie's box office.

Coming to theaters on February 7, 2020!
