Rumor: Batgirl may not be in ‘Birds of Prey’

Margot Robbie revealed a lot of new info this weekend about her Harley Quinn “girl gang” movie which she even referred to as “Birds of Prey”. We had heard that there were multiple Birds of Prey scripts, each with different characters, but that the only constant between them were Harley Quinn and Barbara Gordon (aka Batgirl). According to a new rumor, Batgirl will not be appearing in the movie.

Last night I tweeted that I thought introducing Batgirl in a R-rated Birds of Prey movie was an interesting choice, given the fact that her solo movie will likely be PG-13 and she has the potentially to be a hero for young girls just like Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman was. That’s when The Wrap reporter Umberto Gonzalez tweeted at me that Batgirl is NOT in Birds of Prey.

He then seemed to imply that Barbara Gordon could still be in the movie, but not as Batgirl.

With Margot Robbie saying she hopes Birds of Prey starts shooting in January, we should be getting casting news soon. That should put a lot of these rumors to rest and give fans answers as to who exactly will be teaming up with Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey.

What do you make of the news that Batgirl may not be in the movie? Let me know in the comments below.
