Birds of Prey Prison Fight Scene Almost Featured a Sex Toy Weapon


Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is nothing short of wacky, silly, and fun. And as it turns out, the movie almost took an X-Rated turn.

In a recent interview with Empire, director Cathy Yan revealed that a surprising weapon was included in the prison fight scene. "When you set an action sequence in an evidence room, it's really fun and you can come up with so much stuff," she said. "We had so many different ideas."

One of those being a sex toy used as a weapon. "At one point [screenwriter] Christina Hodson wanted a giant double-ended dildo that [Harley] had to fend off," Yan added. "I wanted her to have a big fluffy bear stuffed with drugs that she used as a pillow to fight with."

The director pointed out that they had to have "some sort of restraint." "It's a cheeky movie," she said. "Unapologetically so."

Obviously, that idea didn't make it in the final cut, but it would have been interesting to see how it'll all go down. Birds of Prey is the first R-Rated DCEU film so it'll be a cool idea for the director to really take it there.

Though that idea wasn't pulled through, the film itself has all sorts of wacky and cool elements, after all, it's narrated by Harley Quinn, adding all her crazy thoughts into the mix.
