We were introduced to Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad back in 2016, and she’s set to make her return to the big screen with Birds of Prey next February. With both films being under different directors, Robbie talks a bit about the difference when it came to the feel of the set.
Talking to Total Film (via GamesRadar), Robbie had explained that the set of Suicide Squad was pretty ‘harmonious’, and that was due to the fact that they had what was described as an ‘intense’ rehearsal month. Seeing how the film critically bombed, I guess most of the problems came with post-production.
When it came to Birds though, Robbie said:
"No two movie sets are ever the same, and every director has a different process. But we bonded in a different way. I think that there was an immediate understanding between the women. We could all recognize that, ‘This is sick. We’re the chicks, and we get to do this shit. This is awesome.’"
Robbie also said that the cast didn’t have too much of a hard time bonding with each other, seeing as they had some chemistry reads beforehand that made sure they all bounced off the other actors naturally.
Though the Birds are the main title of the film, the movie is no doubt having Harley Quinn as the main protagonist. While we do have a lot of Harley now, I’m hoping the other members of the group get the same amount of exposure and development.
Catch Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) when it hits theaters Feb. 7, 2020.
