Margot Robbie explained why he preferred Birds of Prey before Gotham City Sirens

Everyone knows that “Suicide Squad” It was not a jewel for critics, but its success at the box office suggested that sequels and spin-offs would be inevitable. This is how a few years later, projects of this franchise are ready to be released, including “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabolous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)”.

But “Birds of Prey” had another project that threatened its realization “Gotham City Sirens”, the idea of ​​a film that would unite Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, the last being played by Margot Robbie. Finally the actress herself decided to produce and convince Warner to perform Birds of Prey first.

Speaking to Nerdist, Robbie mentioned that everything came to her during the “Suicide Squad” promotions at Comic-Con: “There I realized that there were a lot of Harley fans. When I started studying the character more, I came across the Birds Of Prey comics and fell in love with Huntress. I delved deeper into the comics and discovered a huge amount of female DC characters that didn't have much representation outside the comics and were little known. ”

“Then I thought 'what would happen if we had a platform for fans to meet these amazing women?' If we focused on Gotham City Sirens, there were only three great characters that were already known, instead, Birds Of Prey was a group bigger and I thought it was the perfect platform to present more female characters that could take more prominence in the DCU, ”said the actress.

Robbie has a very good point, although Gotham City Sirens is paused, it does not mean that it will not be done. In addition, Catwoman will soon reach theaters being played by Zoe Kravitz In the next installment of the Dark Knight, “The Batman”.

The actress and producer also talked about the difficulties in moving the film forward, since its development took almost five years. “I proposed the project before the R-rated films were 'normal' in the superhero genre, it was before 'Wonder Woman' showed that movies based on comics and with female protagonists were something that could be done, those milestones they helped to take Birds of Prey seriously. ”

“I wanted a women's, action movie and I wanted to do it well. We spent a lot of time writing a script with which everyone was comfortable and safe with the material, then everyone was on board, ”Robbie said.

We will not have to wait long for the final result, since “Birds of Prey” will hit theaters on February 6 of this year.
