We all know what a mess the DCEU has been, especially after Justice League did not do as well as expected. One future film which was in dangers of being shelved again was Batgirl after Joss Whedon left the project. But Warner Bros. is still committed to going forward with not only a Batgirl film, but a Harley Quinn and Birds of Prey film as well.

Thanks to Variety film reporter Justin Kroll’s twitter we have quite a bit of information about the status of some of these films, most of which we have covered already. But for the sake of you all being perfectly informed, let’s walk through it all before we get to the actual news of this piece. According to Kroll, Whedon’s replacement Christina Hodson “blew execs away with her script”, causing the studio to push off production of Suicide Squad 2 to do Bird of Prey first. The Suicide Squad sequel had been reportedly going to start filming sometime this year.

The thought behind this move according to Krull is that the Studio wants to do for Batgirl what Marvel Studios did for Black Panther. Meaning that they want to introduce her to the DCEU before giving her a solo title. But that it won’t necessarily slow down Suicide Squad 2 which will apparently start shooting right after Birds of Prey.

Since Warner Bros. brought in Cathy Yan to direct Birds of Prey Kroll also says that there are two versions of the Birds of Prey script. But that they both contain Harley Quinn and Barbara Gordon, with the remaining character being different. This idea is fine since the Birds of Prey have had a history of having a revolving door of characters on the team.

It will be interesting to see how much of this is true. We will have to give it some time as details come out. As a DC Comics fan I would love to see more characters from the DC Universe on the big screen.
