You've got to hand it to DC; as polarizing as the comic book giant's movies have become, they've shown quite the commitment to trying new and exciting things on the silver screen. We saw this with the release of Suicide Squad this summer, and we will see the DCEU double down on this notion with the newly revealed Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey solo movie. If you consider yourself a fan of female DC characters, then this is really the movie you've always been waiting for.

However, as excited as we are for the Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey movie, not very many people have a deep understanding of the mythology behind it. The Birds of Prey are definitely a famous comic book team, but they aren't nearly as recognizable as the Justice League or The Bat Family. With that in mind, we have compiled a handy guide to help get you up to speed on the basics of the Birds of Prey before the movie comes out. Without further ado, let's get started with one of the team's most iconic members:

Barbara Gordon Birds of Prey

Barbara Gordon a.k.a Batgirl

If you were going to wager on any member of the Birds of Prey to pop up in the upcoming Harley Quinn spin-off movie, then Barbara Gordon would easily be the safest bet. The daughter of Commissioner James Gordon, and secret ally of The Dark Knight, the young Ms. Gordon has become one of the most iconic heroines in all of comics. However, at this stage it's difficult to know what version of Barbara we will get on the Birds of Prey team. If DC wants to get her in on the action sequences, then it's possible that she could suit up as Batgirl during the events of the movie. However, considering how far into the Batman mythos the DCEU already is, it's also very possible that she could take the form of wheelchair-bound tech genius known as Oracle. Either way, she will be a complete badass.
