Last month, Margot Robbie posted a picture of the title page of the script for the upcoming Birds of Prey movie on Instagram. Fans started to question, will the title really be Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)?
Robbie appeared on Monday's episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and confirmed that, though a mouthful, it would indeed be the complete title of the DC film that will begin filming in 2019.
“It’s not a very serious movie so we thought the title should reflect that,” Robbie told Fallon. "Birds of Prey makes it sound really serious and that’s kind of like Harley adding her, ‘Don’t worry, I’m in this too.'”
The film, which is set to be released in theaters in February 2020, will see Robbie reprise her Suicide Squad role of the infamous Harley Quinn.
“I love a long title,” Robbie said. “I actually said that when we were thinking of the title. You know what’s a great title? Did you ever see The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out a Window and Disappeared? Long title, but I love it.”
Robbie joined the DC Universe in 2016 with Suicide Squad and quickly became one of Warner Bros.’ biggest stars in the comic book movie world. As a result, the studio wanted to work with her in any way possible. She became most interested in the Birds of Prey story, and helped push the project along.
We're excited to see Robbie return to the DCEU in the superhero team-up film which will follow the adventures of female heroes and villains.
