Margot Robbie Discusses The Insanely Long Title For ‘Birds Of Prey’ movie

It’s been two years since Harley Quinn’s live-action debut in Suicide Squad. Margot Robbie’s performance was so enamoring, she stole the show. The return of “Daddy’s Little Monster” is highly anticipated in the DC Extended Universe film where Black Canary will make her first appearance. It seems that Harley’s joining the Birds of Prey for a ride, whether they like it or not.

On the Jimmy Fallon show, Robbie discussed the ridiculously long title, Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn):

That’s real. That’s the title. It’s not a very serious movie so we thought the title should reflect that. Birds of Prey makes it sound very serious and that’s kind of Harley adding her ”Hey don’t worry I’m in this, too.”

Although the length of the title is unusually long, the addition is easy to drop when referring to the film. Robbie implied it is a meta-nod to her character, and it really does sound like something Harley Quinn would say. Her character often brings out the fierceness and creativity of the heroes and villains she teams up with. She added, “I love a long title, I said that when we were thinking of the title.”

The actress also confirms that the filming will begin early 2019, her co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead has confirmed this too.

Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) carries a unique plot. Featuring a team-up of Huntress, Black Canary, and the tag-along Harley Quinn as they work together to save Batman’s young protege, Cassandra Cain from Black Mask. It’ll be so interesting to see these A-List DC women on the big screen. The title itself sounds like a comic book series, and Robbie has always brought the right spirit to play for DC and Warner Bros.

What do you think of the insanely long title? Let us know.
