Wolf Of Wall Street star Margot is confirmed to be reprising her breakout Suicide Squad role, though apart from that we know little at all about the project.

The story and groundings of Birds Of Prey remain a mystery as well, as in the DC print universe the Brids Of Prey are a superhero team of heroines helmed founded by Oracle (Barbara Gordon/Batgirls post The Killing Joke identity after being left paralyzed by The Joker) with Black Canary and Huntress as the core team members.

Margot recently described the film as an R-rated girl gang film.

She told Collider: I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, “Harley needs friends.” Harley loves interacting with people, so dont ever make her do a standalone film.

Shes got to be with other people, it should be a girl gang. I wasnt seeing enough girl gangs on screen, especially in the action space. So that was always a big part of it.
