Cathy Yan Wants ‘Birds of Prey’ Sequel To Have a Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy Romance

Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan already has ideas for a sequel. Although a direct  Birds of Prey follow-up has not yet officially been confirmed, Yan has already started plotting out where she would take Harley Quinn on her next adventures — and with whom. And that character will be very familiar to longtime fans of Harley Quinn in both her animated and comic book forms.

In an interview with The Wrap, Cathy Yan said that if she were to direct a  Birds of Prey sequel, she would focus on the fan-favorite dynamic of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy:

“I would love to see Poison Ivy and I would certainly love to see the relationship between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.”

A Harley and Poison Ivy romance — or at least a criminal team-up — seems to be on everyone’s minds, as Margot Robbie also recently said that she has also been pushing for the eco-friendly supervillain to appear alongside her Harley Quinn. “One [character] been pushing for as long as I’ve been pushing for this film is Poison Ivy,” Robbie told /Film. “I mean, there’s two versions of that, you know, with some comics, it’s friendship, some comics, it’s romantic. Either way, I want to explore that because I just I love their relationship so much in the comics.”

Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy have long been paired together, first becoming partners in crime in  Batman: The Animated Series during one of Harley’s breaks with the Joker. Their gleeful chemistry and  Thelma and Louise-inspired dynamic in the animated series became so popular that their friendship was soon integrated into the comics. Harley and Ivy would appear as allies and maybe more in the comics and more animated shows, but their romantic relationship only became canon recently, becoming official in 2015. The second season of DC Universe’s animated Harley Quinn series, in which Poison Ivy is a recurring character and Harley’s sardonic best friend, will see Ivy finally become Harley’s romantic partner.

Birds of Prey sequel is still unconfirmed, but Yan doesn’t dismiss the possibility, despite the film’s somewhat disappointing box office returns. “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,” she said.
