‘Birds Of Prey’ Writer Christina Hodson Talks Harley Quinn & Introducing Batgirl

Birds of Prey screenwriter Christina Hodson expressed her excitement about bringing new DC heroines, including Batgirl, to the big screen during an interview with ComicBook.com.

After making her first appearance as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie will reprise the role in DC’s superhero team-up film Birds of Prey. Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson penned the screenplay for Harley Quinn’s latest adventure and the screenwriter discussed how Robbie has gained insight into the character’s depth since Suicide Squad:

“Despite the superficial side and glitter and shininess, there is a real depth to her. She has a soulfulness and intelligence, and Margot has that. You can see that in her eyes, and not everyone can do that, and not everyone could have brought that Harley to life the way that Margot did.”

Christina Hodson is also set to pen the script for the developing Batgirl film and why she couldn’t divulge details on the project, she did express her excitement over writing Barbara Gordon’s first live-action solo film:

“Oh I’m just super excited about it. I can say so little about this one, but I can tell you I’m having so much fun writing her. She is such a great character and so different than Harley. Yeah, I’m having a blast, and I can’t tell you any of the things that I’m doing! I’m just excited for her to be holding her own against all the other superheroes.”

Full details on the Birds of Prey plot are currently unknown, though the film will center on Huntress, Black Canary, and Harley Quinn joining forces to protect Cassandra Cain when she comes into the possession of a diamond belonging to a criminal kingpin known as Black Mask.

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.
