Batgirl is also one of the founding members of the Birds of Prey. While Batgirl has her own standalone film in development, there have been rumors stating that she will make her DC debut in Birds of Prey. The scripts for both the films is being written by Christina Hodson.
Cathy Yan will be directing the film for Warner Bros. while Robbie herself will be the film’s producer. A solo movie for Harley is also rumored along with a twisted Harley Quinn & The Joker movie as well as a Gotham City Sirens film, directed by David Ayer.
