Major Changes:

  • Attempt to give the Japanese aspects as much respect as possible.
  • Flashbacks integrated with backstory from Birds of Prey movie.
  • Dialogue tightened throughout to remove the most cringy lines.
  • Shots in fight scenes where Huntress looks anything but badass are removed as much as possible, fight scenes tightened for better intensity and flow.
  • Some scenes reordered for more narrative mystery.

Editing Intent:

From a shallow POV, the original movie  is a mix of “The Wolverine” (Japan setting) and Logan (Dies at the end, mentors protégé.) But since the script is a rip off of the 1950s film D.O.A., we lean into that – trying to leave some mystery as long as possible. I love that part of Huntress's mythos is that she crusades to put an end to the crime families. All the violence in this edit is focused on yakuza gangs, so I think this edit ends up working well within the overall idea of Helena Bertinelli, pre New-52. Also that Varrick's agency could actually be Spyral.
