The Wrap had an exclusive story that the next Harley Quinn movie staring Margot Robbie will feature a bevy of DC Female Heroine. In addition, the main villain in the movie will be a never before seen on the screen character.
A good bit of spec related to this Birds of Prey Movie. First up who will be the villain. Black Canary first appears in Flash Comics #86, which is very pricey, so we can count that one out unless you find a really good deal. The first appearance of the Huntress is also pricey, she first appears in Sensation Comics #68 however, the movie will feature Heena Bertinelli who first appears in The Huntress #1 (April 1989). Cassandra Cain first appears in Batman #567, which is a $100 plus book. Finally, Renee Montoya first appears in Batman #475.
