Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is one of the best movies to have come out in 2020. It remains a candy coated bright spot in the vast wasteland that is 2020 as a whole.

While there has been no word on a sequel (understandable given the state of everything), we’re hoping to see the Birds of Prey together again. Talking with EW, Jurnee Smollett, who played Black Canary in the film, is more than ready and willing to reprise her role.

“It’s no secret how much I loved playing Black Canary, and [I was] so honored to take on that mantle. I would absolutely do it again if given a chance.”

She added that what drew her to Birds of Prey was a chance to tell diverse stories.

“It takes a Margot Robbie and a Cathy Yan, being like, ‘We want an all-girl gang, and yo, let’s just ask the person we think that’s the best for the project.’ Times are changing. It’s exciting because for an artist like myself, I get so bored.”

Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is available for rental.
