Warner Bros. is reportedly confident that they have a hit in Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey.
Over two years after making her first appearance as Harley Quinn in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie will reprise the role in Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary. Now, Variety reports Warner Bros. is confidant Birds of Prey will be a success when it debuts in theaters in February after recent reshoots “dramatically” improved test screening result for the Margot Robbie film.
Furthermore, the outlet reports that insiders describe Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey as a “more humorous, spirited, girl gang adventure.” While Birds of Prey won’t be as grim as Todd Phillips’ Joker, the Margot Robbie film also won’t be suitable for young children and is expected to receive an R rating.

Here is the official synopsis for Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey:
“You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.”
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script penned by Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Ewan McGregor as Black Mask, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Ali Wong, Robert Catrini, and Michael Masini have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
Birds of Prey will be released in theaters on February 7, 2020.
