The director of Birds of Prey, Cathy Yan, expresses her disappointment over the narrative that came about from the film’s lackluster box office performance.

Releasing the movie earlier this year when the theaters were still open for business, the Margot Robbie starring picture had the lowest box office opening of any DC Comics movie in the past decade. Birds of Prey has since gone on to earn more than double its budget, but that hasn’t done anything to dispel the impression the movie was a box office disaster.

Following the stand out performance as Harley Quinn, it was only a matter of time before Robbie reprised the role again. Though there were many different vehicles in the works for Robbie’s Harley, she opted to pursue Birds of Prey, recognizing it would showcase more of DC’s lesser known characters, like Black Canary and Huntress. Cathy Yan was hired as the director and Christina Hodson as the screen writer, rounding out the predominately female-driven movie, both in front of and representation of its woman protagonists, the movie’s apparent failure at the box office was taken by some as more proof that superhero movies starring women just aren’t successful.

In an interview, director of the movie discussed the expectations placed on birds of prey ahead of of its release and how that likely impacted the narrative surrounding its box office performance. Specifically, Yan was asked if she felt that there was a double standard applied to the movie’s performance when compared to a movie like Ford v Ferrari which saw a similar return at the box office in relation to its budget.

We hope that they will not completely abandon the world that they have created with Harley and the Birds of Prey, and the fans can see them together again in some capacity.
