BIRDS OF PREY Director Cathy Yan Has Plans For A Sequel Exploring Harley Quinn's Relationship With Poison Ivy

During a recent interview, Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan confirmed that she's already had ideas for a sequel and that Harley's relationship with Poison Ivy would be the focal point...

Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey didn't make the biggest of impacts at the box office, but as it now looks to find new life on VOD platforms, director Cathy Yan has told The Wrap that she already has an idea for a sequel should it happen. It's obviously very early days on that front, but this is something bound to get comic book fans excited. 

"I would love to see Poison Ivy and I would certainly love to see the relationship between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy," the filmmaker told the trade, explaining that their romance would be a big part of the follow-up. We're not sure where that leads the Birds of Prey, of course, but those are characters who will presumably headline their own spinoff somewhere down the line. 

Asked whether she thinks a sequel revolving around Harley Quinn will actually happen, Yan added: "I don’t know — I think people aren’t ready to let go of Harley Quinn quite yet and you know, Margot I don’t think is ready to let go of Harley Quinn yet either, so… hopefully."

The character is, of course, set to appear in James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, so we are going to see more of her before too long. Given the somewhat standalone nature of the DC Extended Universe these days, though, it's doubtful that the return of Task Force X to the big screen will do much to set the stage for whatever Warner Bros. has planned next for Harley Quinn. 

It would be no bad thing to see Yan get the chance to explore Harley's budding romance with Ivy, though, and we'll just have to keep our fingers cross that happens somewhere down the line.

What do you guys think?
