Margot Robbie stars on the Birds of Prey after almost four years when she made her comic book movies.
This character from the Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is said to be better than the rest. Her character has her journey, and now it stands out for a lot of reasons.
During an interview with the Fox Robbie said, “I think the mere fact that we eliminated a romantic storyline kind of goes against what we’re used to or accustomed to seeing in a film when you have a female protagonist. I think Harley defies expectations in every way, she defies social norms in every way, and that’s just part of her [behavior].”
When asked about how people will think about her character and whether they might get upset, she explained, “I think people are responding to something different these days. think any time a movie or TV show is seemingly breaking the mold; people seem to respond extremely positively, and I think that will happen in this case.”
She added that the Birds of Prey is a different kind of comic book. It is fresh and unlike any others.
Robbie added that she has a lot of fun doing the character, “I mean, there is so much to her, and she is so unapologetically herself.
She does insane things all the time, and that is such a gift as an actor because you have many options, and you can behave in erratic and unpredictable ways, and you can do the things you can’t do in real life.”
This two-time Oscar nominee added that “She’s still very human in her vulnerability and her emotions. That’s a great thing for me to tap into, and I think for audiences to tap into.”
Her co-star, Jurnee Smollet-Ball, had a lot to say about it and she said that there was something special about the film, “I think we all were quite aware of the fact we were part of something that hadn’t been done before to have an R-rated action, comic book, girl gang movie. It felt like: ‘Oh wow, this is new and exciting and refreshing,’ and honestly, just to come to work with these wicked–s chicks, it was just so exciting and unlike anything I’ve ever been a part of.”
Another star in the film, Rosie Perez, also felt the same and said For me, I’ve always known women could kick a–. I’ve kicked a few a–es myself in my lifetime.
From the stars to directors, there is a massive roster of females in the making of the film.
Screenwriter Christina Hodson, in another interview, said, “It’s a real fallacy that action movies are for boys and men. I grew up loving action movies, as did Margot [Robbie].
We saw eye to eye, and the fun we had on that first meeting played into the development of the movie,”
She and Robbie connected and developed the movie over pizza and mimosa during their first meeting.
