We Will Not See Batgirl In Birds of Prey. Here’s What’s Happening


Warner Bros’ Birds of Prey has now become DC’s biggest projects that is ready to kick off by 2020, and this movie is now building a lot of buzz with the very first trailer. There are a few people who are now coming to terms with the differences between the film version of this team and also the comic book one. In the movie, the ringleader of the group is set to be Margot Robbie’s character, Harley Quinn, and in the comic books, the leader is Batgirl. A few had been hoping that Batgirl would be introduced in the film in some way but the producer, Sue Kroll had told ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis that this would not be the case.

When questioned about the possibility of the character being in Birds of Prey, Kroll had said,

“You’ll not see Batgirl. I’m just going to say no. This is a studio thing. Batgirl is in development for her own film.”

This will be disappointing for all the fans of the comic books. Batgirl has been the leader of the group, whether she had been suited up as Batgirl or her Oracle days. A few had been hoping to see this character make her DC film universe debut.

Now, that this does not mean she cannot crossover over into the Birds of Prey franchise alter, but the Batgirl film is now in development, and so there is no telling when this project would release on the silver screen.

“After splitting up with The Joker, Harley Quinn and three other female superheroes – Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya – come together to save the life of a little girl (Cassandra Cain) from an evil crime lord.”

Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is directed by Cathy Yan and stars Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ewan McGregor, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez, Chris Messina, Bojana Novakovic, Jenelle McKee, Ali Wong, and Matthew Willig.

Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) hits theaters on February 7th, 2020.
