In any event, I'm glad that Warner Bros.is not only exercising caution and restraint in their superhero slate, but that they're continuing to employ female directors for their superhero movies. Not to mention she'll be the first female Asian-American director ever for a mainstream superhero film.

DC's new gang of female characters has found a ringleader. The project for the independent Harley Quinn film is based on Birds of Prey, in which Quinn joins other crime fighters like Black Canary and Batgirl. The script was written by Christina Hodson, who just got hired to write the "Batgirl" movie. Robbie is close to signing a deal to star as Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood", so production on the DC movie won't start until after that film is completed.

Warner Bros. knew Harley Quinn was a breakout character from Suicide Squad, and it's interesting to see that they've made a decision to go with Birds of Prey over Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens, or a Harley & Joker movie. In addition to this film, a sequel to Suicide Squad is in the works with Gavin O'Connor directing.
