Fan favorite Batman villain Harley Quinn made her theatrical debut in 2016’s Suicide Squad, played by Margot Robbie. Though the film wasn’t very well-received, Robbie’s performance was praised. Robbie’s Quinn is set to return in the sequel/reboot film The Suicide Squad in 2021, directed by Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. But before that, Quinn will join another DC team in a completely different film.

Coming February 2020, Robbie will star and executive produce Birds of Prey (and the Fabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). The film sees Harley Quinn trying to live her life without the Joker beside her. She discovers that a young Cassandra Cain, who will eventually become Batwoman, is being threatened by the villainous gangster Black Mask. She teams up with other female DC superheroes to rescue her.
