As additional photography on Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) continues, a behind-the-scenes video clip set teases a familiar look for the popular antihero.
WarnerMedia's 2018 Diversity and Inclusion Interim video report shows Margot Robbie dressed up as Harley Quinn in roller derby gear, reviewing footage with director Cathy Yan between filming takes.
The idea of Harley joining a roller derby had been introduced in the first volume of the character's solo comic book series during the New 52 era by Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner and Chad Hardin, that saw Harley strike out on her own and move to Brooklyn.
A behind-the-scenes photo posted by stunt doubles from the film this past February teased that the DC Extended Universe movie would indeed include a sequence set in a roller derby, without divulging specifics. What role Harley and the roller derby has on the story itself has yet to be seen.
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script by Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) stars Margot Robbie, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez, Ewan McGregor, Steven Williams, Derek Wilson, Dana Lee, Francois Chau, Charlene Amoia, Chris Messina and Matthew Willig. The film is scheduled for release on Feb. 7, 2020.
