After the announcement of the Birds of Prey character lineup, DC fans once again took to social media to express their feelings about the picks.
The Birds of Prey movie full of antiheroes and villains like Harley Quinn and Black Canary sparked a myriad of reactions from fans on the internet. DC’s bold choice to make a movie about the powerful women in the DC universe made many fans rejoice. Even though some people had mixed emotions about the casting choices, most fans are thrilled to see where this movie leads. Some are even more excited because of the positive stance the film is set to take on the LGBTQ community. Either way, this film is sure to be one that ignites all kinds of conversation about women’s issues in the comic universe.

I am crying that Barbara won’t be in the Birds of Prey movie, I’ve been waiting for a modern live action Barbara for who knows how long and now I have to wait longer because who knows if she will be Batgirl in the Batgirl movie or be in the DCEU at all 😭

It could be possible that the Birds of Prey were founded way before the movie and after Barbara had the accident with the Joker, she is Oracle now and Cassandra is taking the Batgirl role. There could be a lot of explanations.

DC is introducing Renee Montoya into the DCEU.
This is huge.
The first lesbian character in a Big 2 superhero movie.
And a lesbian woman of color at that.
I am literally shaking. #BirdsOfPrey

I'm ready for Birds of Prey to be a smash hit so DC can take Black Canary and give me my Green Arrow/Black Canary spinoff! 😉 pic.twitter.com/E7rHDxwCy2

The Birds Of Prey Lineup should of been Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), Black Canary, Huntress, Lady Blackhawk. And Poison Ivy. Cassandra Cain shouldn't be in it!#BirdsOfPrey #Batgirl #Blackcanary #huntress #ladyblackhawk #dc #dccomics pic.twitter.com/Q2CvAQr8XF

I’m upset to see Barbara not in it, but I whole heartedly believe there is a reason she isn’t in it! A diverse Birds of Prey cast is everything I could wish for anyway! I am so freaking excited to see Dinah Laurel on the big screen! Margot, I am indebted to you Queen!

Imagine if Birds of Prey features fight choreography similar to the Batman warehouse scene or Atomic Blonde. AHHH pic.twitter.com/G0J8v6g4zo
