WB/DC’s upcoming female superhero team is set to hit theaters on Febraury 7, 2020, the studio announced on Monday.

With this new date, it appears that the studio ha moved up the released a week early from previously reserved February 14.

Cathy Yan is set to direct the film, with Margot Robbie reprising her “Suicide Squad” character Harley Quinn. The actress is also producing along with Sue Kroll and Brian Unkeless.

In this film, Robbie’s Harley Quinn is set to team with a trio of supervillains. There’s not a lot of released plot details, but according to a report from The Wrap this summer, that team would include Dinah Laurel Lance / Black Canary, Helena Bertinelli / Huntress, Cassandra Cain and Renee Montoya.

The original Birds of Prey comics series was conceived by Jordan B. Gorfinkel and has seen its setting move around various locations, from Batman’s popularly known residence Gotham City, then in Superman’s Metropolis and eventually settling in 2008 in “Platinum Flats” in California.

Originally a partnership between Dinah Lance and Barbara Gordon, the team has since expanded to include other DC superheroines.

Though the future of Warner Bros.’ DC cinematic universe remains unknown, the studio has been busy with plenty of its comicbook movie properties including the much-buzzed about Todd Phillips “Joker” film starring Joaquin Phoenix.
