It’s a Wrap: New Photo Celebrates End of Birds of Prey Principal Photography
We’ve got a fresh photo from the set of director Cathy Han and star Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Producer and star Robbie is reprising her role as everyone’s favorite psychopath, Harley Quinn. It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with Birds of Prey. The new photo posted on Instagram by Robbie’s LuckyChap Entertainment celebrates the film wrapping principal photography.
A quick refresher on Birds of Prey‘s focus. The story sees Robbie’s Quinn teaming up with a bevy of female superheroes, including the future Batgirl (Ella Jay Basco), the Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), and Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell). The film boasts considerable talent behind the camera as well. The aforementioned Yan directed from a script by the super talented Christina Hodson (Bumblebee). Check out the photo here:

Harley Quinn and her team of talented superheroes will have their work cut out for them. They’re up against one of Gotham’s craziest supervillains—Black Mask (Ewan McGregor). In the comics, Black Mask created a cult called The False Face Society, who acted as his brutally loyal mob. “Every member of the society was given a mask that would reveal their ‘true’ selves, and the whole practice eventually became a sort of religious experience, making the False Facers some of the most loyal and devoted scumbags around,” writes DCcomics.com.
Harley Quinn knows a thing or two about lunatics—her main squeeze is the Joker, after all. While McGregor’s villain will no doubt make a lot of noise in the film, this is definitely Harley Quinn’s story. We’re very excited about Birds of Prey and seeing what kind of fantabulous emancipation is in store for Quinn, the most interesting character—by far—in David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad.
We’ve got a bit longer to wait, however—Birds of Prey isn’t due in theaters until February 7, 2020.
