The Harley Quinn movie is moving forward. More details about the Suicide Squad spinoff have emerged, and it has been reported that a scriptwriter has been hired.

No Caption Provided

According to The Wrap, Christina Hodson will write the script. Hodson is also working on Bumblebee, the Transformers spinoff expected in 2018, and has penned a reboot of The Fugitive for Warner.

The site also notes that the film won't just focus on Harley, played by Margot Robbie in this year's supervillain team-up. The film will be a Birds of Prey movie, and could feature other female characters from the DC universe, such as Poison Ivy, Katana, Catwoman, and Circe.

In September, it was reported that Robbie would also produce the film. The actress has signed a first-look deal with Warner, meaning that the studio will have the first option to make any projects that her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment, develops there. According to THR, the Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey movie has been set up there.

Despite mixed reviews, Suicide Squad has to date made $745 million worldwide. It currently stands as the eighth biggest film of the year.

@straightcur: I would like to see Oracle, but it would be snazzy to have a new way to show Batgirl before Oracle :-( But Oracle would match up with the timeline that BvS & SS created

@blitxxx1981: Possibly a subplot where Batgirl becomes Oracle. Change up her origins a bit and make Harley take her down.....? (i know hardcores will hate it, but Comics change things up all the time, why not movies)

@silversix_: agreed. especially with marvel. the same situation is now occurring with star wars. the problem i see: there is no longer enough time to digest media and anticipate the next big release since people are heavily bombarded by so much content all the time. i guess it is possible to have too much of a good thing?

@silversix_: They each only release 2 movies a year. That isnt that much. But there is constant "news" about them which could be the bigger problem.

@silversix_: I agree. This is what happens, when these comic publishers are owned by the 2 most money-hungry companies of the world (Warner Bros. for dc, and Disney for marvel).
