‘Birds of Prey' Producers Sue Kroll and Bryan Unkeless on Their “Edgy and Cool and Gritty” DC Superheroine Movie

1 month ago   |   By Slash Film

Earlier this year, I visited the set of Birds of Prey , which promises to be a very different kind of DC Comic Book movie. The film is a spin-off adventure for Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, but it also sees the formation of a new, all-female team of superheroes, along with an edgy, irreverent tone.
During our visit, I was able to speak to producers Sue Kroll and Bryan Unkeless , who screened some early footage for us before diving into the film's unique energy, what director Cathy Yan brings to the project, and why Batgirl didn't make the cut.
Note: this interview was conducted in a...

Harley Quinn & Joker's Romance Confused Margot Robbie, Too

Harley Quinn & Joker's Romance Confused Margot Robbie, Too

1 month ago   |   By Screen Rant

Fans were more than excited for Suicide Squad to bring the love story of Harley Quinn and The Joker to life on film. But like most other aspects of the movie, it ended up confusing or turning off as many fans as it pleased. But for those who tried and failed to understand their twisted, traumatic love story, you're certainly not alone - even Margot Robbie had trouble wrapping her head around it. That may be just one more reason why Birds of Prey is going to find Harley living on her own, having broken up with The Joker before the main events of the movie even begin. And while the movie's...

‘Birds of Prey' Star Margot Robbie on the Evolution of Harley Quinn and Her Comic Book Inspirations

On March 12, 2019, I visited the set of Birds of Prey on the Warner Bros Studio Lot in Los Angeles. While on set, a group of journalists had the opportunity to sit down with Harley Quinn herself, Margot Robbie , to talk about the making of this new DC movie. She's not only the star of the film, but a producer, and we talked about everything from the comic book inspirations, the evolution of Harley Quinn, the choice of characters, and much more.
Note: this interview was conducted as a roundtable with other assembled journalists.

How ‘Birds of Prey' Builds Harley Quinn's “Girl Gang,” According to Margot Robbie

How ‘Birds of Prey' Builds Harley Quinn's “Girl Gang,” According to Margot Robbie

1 month ago   |   By Slash Film

Ever since her inception, Harley Quinn has been tied to a man, at some point or another. In her debut in Batman: The Animated Series , she was introduced as the Joker's henchman and lover, and despite the character's wild popularity, she's never really been able to escape that label.
But in Birds of Prey , Margot Robbie ‘s Harley Quinn finally gets to step out from under the shadow of her “Mistah J.” Newly single and ready to mingle, Harley doesn't attach herself to a new man, but finds a group of similarly empowered crime-fighting women to build herself a girl gang. And although Harley...

Birds of Prey Completely Ignores Suicide Squad

Birds of Prey Completely Ignores Suicide Squad

1 month ago   |   By Screen Rant

The Suicide Squad may have been a box office juggernaut and given the world Margot Robbie's headlining Harley Quinn. But with Birds of Prey now heading towards release, Warner Bros. is cutting all ties possible to shift the focus to Harley Quinn's future, instead. Sorry, Joker. This may all be confirmation at this point, since the writing has been on the wall for months, if not years. After Suicide Squad took a beating with critics, the moves to lift Robbie's Harley out of the franchise and into one of her own started almost immediately. Now it seems Jared Leto's Joker is over , with...

Birds of Prey is Harley Quinn's Story, But Not HER Movie

Birds of Prey is Harley Quinn's Story, But Not HER Movie

1 month ago   |   By Screen Rant

Comic book fans have been calling for a Birds of Prey adaptation for years, with the collected appeal and talent of Batgirl, Black Canary, Huntress, and more a package deal. But it's only proven possible through the box office clout of Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn. And as many fans have noticed, the early marketing left no question as to Harley's leading role in the Birds of Prey 's own film. So is it 'a Harley Quinn movie' with the Birds supporting? Screen Rant had the opportunity to ask that very question to Sue Kroll, producer of Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One...

Why Making ‘Birds of Prey' R-Rated Was “Liberating,” According to Margot Robbie

Why Making ‘Birds of Prey' R-Rated Was “Liberating,” According to Margot Robbie

1 month ago   |   By Slash Film

Even as superhero movies became more and more prominent and popular, the idea of an R-rated superhero flick seemed impossible. These were movies marketed to the widest possible audience, after all. But little by little, R-rated comic book adaptations have been trickling in. Deadpool was a smash-hit, followed by Logan , which earned itself an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. And this year, Joker defied all expectations and raked in a billion dollars. Now, Birds of Prey , a semi-sequel to Suicide Squad , might follow suit. While no Birds of Prey rating has been awarded to the film yet, the...

‘Birds of Prey' is ‘Pulp Fiction' Meets ‘Rashomon' With an Unreliable Narrator, Says Director Cathy Yan

1 month ago   |   By Slash Film

Warner Bros. and DC's upcoming Birds of Prey is an ensemble piece with Margot Robbie ‘s Harley Quinn serving as the center of attention. But it's important to remember that Harley is a little deranged, and since this movie is being told from her perspective, it's probably not wise to take everything you see as the gospel truth.
During a visit to the set of Birds of Prey , /Film's Peter Sciretta and a group of other journalists spoke with director Cathy Yan and producer Sue Kroll about Harley as an unreliable narrator, the narrative and aesthetic influences on the movie, and more.
