[UPDATE] Did We Just Get a ‘Birds Of Prey’ Synopsis? Film Villain Revealed

More details are getting revealed for the girl gang movie Birds Of Prey, and we are not mad about it. It feels like the DCU is trying to make up for previous movies and are giving the fans everything they’re expecting it to be. Recently we got a character list of the blazing team of girls, including Black Canary, Cassandra Cain, Huntress and Renee Montoya.

Discussing Film released an article where they exclusively revealed the synopsis for the movie, which gives us a little more to feed our imagination.

Read the synopsis below:

“After splitting up with The Joker, Harley Quinn and three other female superheroes – Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya – come together to save the life of a little girl (Cassandra Cain) from an evil crime lord.”

It seems that Harley and her gang are getting ready to do some good for a girl names Cassandra Cain, which was already in the character list that got released by The Wrap. The ‘evil crime lord’ is what gets my attention in the synopsis. We do know now that it won’t be the Penguin for sure. According to Discussing Film, the Penguin was at one point going to be the main villain for Birds Of Prey.

Who could it be though? What if it is the Joker anyway? Harley did split up with the Joker (even though she was reunited in the last scene of Suicide Squad), I would like to think we’re going to see a Poison Ivy in the mix. The crime lord could easily be the Joker, however, there is nothing that would point in that direction at the moment.

[Update]: The Wrap reported that we officially have a villain for the film. First, they reported that the villain would be one that hadn’t appeared on the big screen yet, and we’re happy to announce that Black Mask will be the villain of the Birds Of Prey movie!

Black Mask was created by Doug Moench and made its first appearance in the 1985s Batman comics (#386).

What do you think of the Birds Of Prey synopsis? Are you excited that this movie is moving forward?

Birds Of Prey is reported to start production at the beginning of 2019. No other announcements were made for the release date.
