Margot Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn in the DC Extended Universe has been nothing short of exceptional. From her first appearance in Suicide Squad to her own standalone film, Birds of Prey, Robbie has captured the essence of the character with remarkable skill and charisma. She effortlessly brings Harley Quinn’s blend of unpredictability, humor, and vulnerability to life on the screen.
Robbie’s performance has been praised for its energy, wit, and ability to delve into the complex layers of the character. Her dedication to the role and the depth she brings to Harley Quinn have solidified her as the definitive live-action portrayal of this beloved comic book character.
WB Refused To Spend More Money On CGI
In Birds of Prey, Harley Quinn takes on a furry companion in the form of a hyena. This nods to her previous incarnations in Batman: The Animated Series and the comics, where she famously had two hyenas named Bud and Lou, paying homage to the iconic comedy duo Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.
The inclusion of the hyena as her pet adds an extra layer of quirkiness and showcases Harley’s unconventional and unpredictable nature, further cementing her unique and beloved character in the world of Batman and the DC universe. Due to the intricate and resource-intensive process of creating a photorealistic animated hyena, the filmmakers opted to feature only a single hyena companion for Harley Quinn in the film.
The decision to have a solitary hyena instead of the usual two, as seen in other iterations of the character, was primarily driven by the technical demands and budgetary considerations involved in bringing the creature to life on screen. Despite the change, the inclusion of a hyena as Harley’s pet still adds an element of wildness and unpredictability to her character, reflecting her unconventional and untamed nature.
