This makes Yan the second female director to make a DC movie, after Patty Jenkins, and the first Asian woman ever to direct a superhero movie.

Deadline is reporting that Cathy Yan, a former Wall Street Journal reporter turned filmmaker, is Warner Bros.' pick to direct Margot Robbie in an upcoming Harley Quinn standalone film. The film is expected to be based on the "Birds of Prey" comics storyline and feature numerous female characters from the DC universe teaming up with Robbie's Harley.

Yan would come into the Harley Quinn/Birds of Prey project after her most recent film, Dead Pigs, won Sundance's World Cinema Dramatic Award for Ensemble Acting. Hodson is also writing "Batgirl" for DC.

While it's unknown if those specific characters made it into Yan's initial treatment, with Hodson working on the Batgirl script, it makes sense that Babs would make her debut in Birds of Prey first, which is looking to start production at the end of the year. She is still negotiating to star with Leo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Beyond that, she's mostly worked on short films as a producer and writer.

Admittedly, it's been somewhat hard keeping track of the happenings over at Warner Bros.' DCU: you've got movies that are part of the established Snyder-verse (Aquaman, the next Wonder Woman), movies that aren't a part of that mythology (the forthcoming Joker movie from Todd Phillips), and a few projects whose ties to the greater DCU remain unclear (the long-gestating Gotham City Sirens movie, for instance).
