'Birds of Prey' Video Shows Harley Quinn Filming Explosive Scene

Filming for Birds of Prey is well underway and new footage from the set has surfaced showing a fiery stunt that Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) finds herself in the midst of. Posted to YouTube by X17 Online, the video shows a tractor-trailer barreling through a gate ahead of a series of explosions.

Once the semi gets through the gate, you can see Quinn kneeling on the ground. The latest set video follows a handful of pictures that have surfaced since production has started after an official teaser gave us the first look at the cast involved in the film.

Though exact details have yet to be released, Robbie previously discussed the film as a "Harley and friends" adventure.

“I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, ‘Harley needs friends.’ Harley loves interacting with people, so don’t ever make her do a standalone film," Robbie previously said. "She’s got to be with other people, it should be a girl gang. I wasn’t seeing enough girl gangs on screen, especially in the action space. So that was always a big part of it."

Along with Robbie's Harley Quinn, Birds of Prey is set to feature Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), and Black Mask (Ewan McGregor). The film is helmed by Cathy Yan on a script from Christina Hodson (Bumblebee).
