Birds of Prey Writer Teases Surprises In Film; Confirms Batgirl Script is a “Joy to Work On”


Christina Hodson’s Bumblebee is a success, so now onto her next project! Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is highly anticipated and in a recent interview with, as teased that we are going to up for some big surprises in the upcoming DC film!

“Yeah, January. Super excited. Our cast is awesome. Most of it has leaked, so you already know who’s playing who. I’m super excited about the cast, about the characters. And it’s really fun and different and honestly, I think aside from the fact that, obviously, the studio would like me to not say anything, I think it’s fun not to say anything yet because that means there’s going to be whole bunch of fun little surprises for fans and for new people to the DC universe to discover.”

Obviously, Hodson couldn’t say too much, but that she was super excited for the upcoming project. With good reason – who doesn’t want to see this all-star cast of female badasses? Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was one of the aspects praised out of Suicide Squad and seeing her pair up with the likes of many femme fatales is something audiences will want to see.

Hodson is also in the middle of developing a Batgirl script, which is a movie that has seen it’s fair share of turnaround, but we’re confident Hodson is the person for the job. She wasn’t able to say much when asked, of course.

“Again, above my paygrade. *laughs* Not something I can speak to. But, yeah, I’m loving writing it, I can say that, it’s a total joy to work on. I love the character. And everyday I’m finding new things to love and get excited about.”
