A lot of focus on Harley and not the Birds of Prey. But hey, if you got Margot Robbie, you have to showcase her. That's just good marketing.
Also: Coke amped Harley.
Lol that to me is hilarious.
Harley Quinn plus some other people no one cares about: The Movie. Honestly, I hope it’s a hit so they can make the movie they should have made, Gotham City Sirens. It’s obvious that Robbie didn’t want any of the other anti-heroes to steal the spotlight, though which is why they made this movie instead.
As someone else rightly point out though, don't you think it'd of been much better if they went ahead with Gotham City Sirens, I have a feeling Robbie wanted to do that much more than what she's doing now, my opinion of course.
@jimjaspers20675: she wanted to but couldn’t because Matt Reeves wants to establish Catwoman first. Yesterday David Ayer confirmed GCS is currently on hold. WB are most likely waiting to see how Birds of Prey & The Batman are received before they move forward with GCS.
The idea is to have a mini Harley Quinn trilogy ; BOP, GCS & GCS vs BOP
So are black canary, Huntress in this film or is it just a low key Harley Quinn movie?
Could be another Captain America: Civil War where the ensemble cast does get focus but is primarily a Cap movie. Or they are just marketing Harley Quinn cuz she is the character mainstream audience's are familiar with.
@king-ragnar: The Harley hate is ridiculous. Yes DC pushes her too hard but that's what you do for popular characters. Harleys personally one of my favorite DC characters and if this movie finds the perfect balance between her modern way to crazy and the deeper moments under her characters. I might just love it.
I'm tired of DC fans putting down DC stuff lol. And the Marvel fans are just typical haters so def unbothered by that. What y'all don't realize is that DC thrives off of us giving back in the form of our attention/watching at a local theater. The reason this wasn't GCS is because they wanted to have a trilogy and because of Reeves (like previously stated by @Ready_4_Madness). And y'all aren't realizing that by saying stuff like "I'm not watching this, looks like hot garbage." or "Harley Quinn is too annoying; this is going to bomb LMAO", you're contributing to the reason we might not get a perfect Harley Quinn inspired trilogy (which will only happen BECAUSE OF Margot and don't forget it lol). So I'm not saying you have to watch it if you truly don't want to, but don't immediately write it off based on a 2 minute trailer...
Edit: I just wanna say, I'm not really following this Harley hate train. Most of y'all have been whining for a live action Harley since before TDK and now that we have a perfect one you can't stand her. Can someone please enlighten me?
@ready_4_madness: Yeah it's like 90% of the trailer's viewers hate it. Hell, even AQUAMAN didn't get this much hate with its FIRST trailer (and factoring in all of that unwarranted, ignorant, bias Arthur had because of Superfriends that resurfaced this decade, that's saying a lot) so I'm really not understanding. And tbh it's a little saddening because I have a LOT of hope for this movie. Well at least I'm not alone in trying to understand this madness...
I am just putting this out there, the Harley Quinn cartoon series currently airing is a whole lot of fun, actually “laugh out loud” funny, and very comic-similar Harley. Since it exists, I don’t need this to be the exact Harley I love (right now), I just need it to be better than Suicide Squad.
Follows the same pattern as Suicide Squad. Fully expect Harley to move on to another film while the others are never mentioned again. If they can do it to Joker/Leto then they can do it to Huntress, Canary and the kid called Cass.
Its going to happen regardless of how this film performs.
@entropy_aegis: does it really? Suicide squad had a weird unrelated villain, a witch from a different dimension isn't really a proper mission
But black mask is a great villain for the birds of prey, and if wb steps up the bat family anytime soon, batgirl will definitely meet up with the bop
Plus if it makes money it's getting a sequel, look at suicide squad, it made decent money despite it not being great, so it's getting a semi reboot sequel, if Birds of Prey is good and makes money, it'll get a proper sequel
Plus there's the rumor Harley is getting a Gotham city sirens movie, then we'll get birds of prey vs Gotham city sirens after, which would be cool but is only a rumor, but possible if this is successful
