Birds of Prey, and Batgirl: the screenwriter speaks about title of movie
Warner Bros., after the success of Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn by Margot Robbie, it seems to focus a lot on the female characters in the Worlds of DC, so much so that there are different projects in this regard. Among these, there is definitely Birds of Prey, of which the now “emancipated” girlfriend of the Joker is a great protagonist.
“I think that the full title of the film says it all, also adds a little irony to the issue,” explains the screenwriter of the film, Christina Hodson, Variety, in reference to the full title is Birds of Prey And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn:
“I can't say anything...but I think the title speak for itself. Empowerment means so many different things and can affect people of any gender, we will explore its meaning in different ways. Not having a social, I didn't notice the audience reaction to the title, I just felt that many love and others think we are completely crazy. From my point of view, we must simply wait to see the film before making any comment. Everything will begin to make sense when the hype of the movie will be started and, therefore, we get closer to the release date (February 7, 2020)”.
Always a Variety, the Hodson then spoke of another female character of the Worlds of the DC on which you are working, Batgirl: “I'm falling in love of her, I feel different every time I work on the character. Really different aspects to emphasize and deepen, every time I work on a character already ‘existing’ in other movies or comics I always hope to add something new, even if they are as iconic as Batgirl or maybe Harley Quinn. I believe that people want to recognize yes the characters that he loves, but also something about them that they have never seen before. There is a small part of me in every character with which I have to do, is fun, come to me, and then they have their own life.
These words echo those that have been previously released to the Los Angeles Times, where Hodson has shown his love for Harley Quinn, both Barbara Gordon.
“I'm in love with Harley, makes me laugh, but also makes me cry... he Has such an emotional depth that is completely countered by this light weight, external, superficial, and fun. This makes it so interesting and so real, because people are really this way. Very few people are totally heroic or totally evil, she has this wonderful balance”.
“Batgirl has all the features that I love Batman. I have always been more interested in the human things and supernatural monsters. People are able to try a good deep, but also to try and a profound evil. The things that can make people tight are amazing, terrifying and wonderful at the same time, and this draws in us primary sensations, good and bad , and this to me is really fascinating.”
Directed by Cathy Yan on a screenplay by Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey starring Margot Robbie, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosie Perez and Ewan McGregor. The release is scheduled for the 7th of February 2020.
