DC’s Female Superheroes And Villains Tapped For Spinoff Movie

Margot Robbie as Harley QuinnAccording to a story published by The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is in the planning stages of a spinoff movie based on DC’s female heroes and villains.

Warner Bros. isn’t commenting, but sources claim the movie is driven by the early, favorable response to Margot Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn in the anti-hero spinoff Suicide Squad, which opens in theaters Aug. 5. Reports suggest that while the movie won’t focus solely on Robbie’s Quinn–names such as Batgirl and Birds of Prey have been mentioned–it would potentially center around the character with a Deadpool-like nihilism and breaking the fourth wall.

The news comes as no surprise with Mattel’s DC Super Hero Girls Collection performing well in the toy aisles and DC’s eponymously named all-girl web series returning for a second season on YouTube, with new episodes.
