It's certainly a bit of a mouthful this one, and full-on Harley Quinn. None the less, the film has been eagerly anticipated ever since rumblings of an all-female movie was rumoured following 2016's abysmal 'Suicide Squad'. The film was not a favourite of fans, and Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie even began to receive death threats.
Let's hope that doesn't happen this time around. News about 'Birds of Prey' has been steadily coming in over the past number of months, and now we have the official full title of the film. Cathy Yan was previously announced to direct, making her the first Asian woman to direct a superhero movie. The new subtitle of the film was revealed by Warner Bros. on Twitter.

In terms of casting, the superhero film is not pulling its punches. As well as Robbie's Harley Quinn set to return (and now confirmed to be the leading role), Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jurnee Smollett-Bell are playing Huntress and Black Canary, respectively. Rosie Perez will join them in the role of Renee Montoya, while Ewan McGregor will play the villain Black Mask.
With such a long subtitle for the upcoming film, fans have begun to voice their opinions. Here's the best replies that we've seen.
