While certainly being subpar of Marvel for a good while, DC’s last few efforts have seen their cinematic ship head for more favorable waters. Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Shazam! all contributed to this upswing, and while Todd Phillip’s Joker is up next on the slate, many fans are already looking toward Birds of Prey, which stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
Robbie recently spoke with MTV News and talked about how she feels the upcoming film in which she co-stars with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ali Wong and Obi-Wan Ken– I mean Ewan McGregor, has a Tarantinoesque feel to it, you can check out what he had to say below.
“I mean, yes. The [Tarantino] spirit’s definitely there.”
“In Pulp Fiction, when Uma and John Travolta are having their $5 milkshake, she’s explaining the pilot that she – which I think, in real life, Uma had done. I think that dialogue was based on the fact that she’d done a pilot like that. And then he turned it into dialogue, and then she talks about Fox Force Five. And it’s like a whole scene. But in our movie, there’s five prominent women. And like, we always throw a reference to like, Tarantino moments that we pray to like inject into the film. So it felt fitting. And then, I also asked Quentin, I was like ‘Would you mind if we used the working title Fox Force Five?’ And he thought it was really funny.”
I hope the film can follow in the footsteps of DC’s recent successes. I’ve always believed DC has great characters and properties to work with, it’s just that the projects chosen haven’t been executed very well, and even the most recent films I mentioned above, while vast improvements on what came before them, could have been better.
Birds of Prey flies into theaters February 2020.
