I love McGregor. And Ramona Flowers is always good. Not sure about the rest of the cast, though, and cramming Harley into a Birds of Prey movie seems counterproductive. Especially if they're adamant on referencing Suicide Squad. Still, I liked the IT spoof in the trailer.

Hypo 09-06-2019 03:46 PM

It's more like cramming the Birds of Prey into a Harley Quinn movie as Margot Robbie is the one that pitched this to WB, she wanted to a girl gang type of movie so they could've gone the Gotham City Sirens route instead.

Andrew NDB 09-06-2019 05:04 PM

Is the Harley Quinn movie and the Joker & Harley movie still happening?

This seems like a much cheaper, less interesting version of "Suicide Squad." And that wasn't very interesting.

Hypo 09-06-2019 06:03 PM

So there were four Harley Quinn related projects reportedly in development:
  • Suicide Squad 2 - this was originally suppose to be a direct sequel but has been revamped a bit since Gunn took over. Depending on which report you believe Harley may or may not be in it.
  • Birds of Prey - I think this would be the Harley Quinn movie you're referring to as it's Margot Robbie's pet project.
  • Joker vs Harley - no news on this one since the original report.
  • Gotham City Sirens - this was suppose to be David Ayer's next DC movie (he didn't want Suicide Squad 2) but there's been no news since the original report aside from Ayer tweeting out a picture of Harley, Catwoman and Ivy like 2 years ago.

^I'm up for any more live-action Harley. I would've preferred her to do the voice, but otherwise I thought Robbie was one of the strengths of Suicide Squad.

Michael Heide 09-18-2019 04:57 PM

Robbie in Squad was hit or miss, like a bad Malkavian player in Vampire the Masquerade. Comic book Harley is a very peculiar crazy. Some of her scenes in the movie hit the nail on the head, others were completely random. I still don't get over that odd "that's not what the voices tell me" line.

Andrew NDB 09-18-2019 05:08 PM

I don't understand why she's on the team at all. You know, you can go down the list...

Does she have any superpowers? No.

Is she a good leader? No.

Is she well-trained in battle or fighting? No.

Is she sound-minded, or even sane? No.

There is no reason at all to put her on a team of any kind. She can swing a bat, kind of. That's it.

Sidenote: How sad is it that we're now getting the second Harley Quinn teamup movie before we've even gotten a single Batman movie? And it's been 6 years since the first Man of Steel with a second one nowhere in sight.

Trailer 10/1.

Tons of Harley centric posters, none of the other members of Birds of Prey.

Daniel Pemberton To Score Cathy Yan’s ‘Birds Of Prey’


Daniel Pemberton (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Steve Jobs, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Ocean’s 8) has been hired to score the upcoming superhero movie Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). The film is directed by Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs) and stars Margot Robbie who is reprising her role as Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad. She is joined by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett, Ewan McGregor, Rosie Perez, Chris Messina, Ella Jay Basco and Ali Wong. Christina Hodson (Bumblebee) wrote the screenplay based on the DC Comics title created by Jordan B. Gorfinkel & Chuck Dixon. Robbie is also producing the project with Sue Kroll and Bryan Unkeless (I, Tonya, Bright). Birds of Prey is set to be released on February 7, 2020 by Warner Bros. Pictures.

I could get into it. But I need to see a decent trailer.

Looks like they took everything wrong with Suicide Squad and cranked it up to a 10. And where's all the costumes?

Also, I bet Black Mask won't even become Black Mask until the very end of the movie.

Andrew NDB 10-06-2019 09:35 PM

Oh jeeze... Ewan McGregor: "It's a feminist film that explores misogyny."

Tazer 10-07-2019 05:10 PM


I finally watched the trailer for this, and while I am disappointed with this getting hit by the "DIVERSITY!!" -bat, I'm even more disappointed that: 1) this looks like (Hypo already stated) theyre "cramming the Birds of Prey into a Harley Quinn movie", and 2) Cassie Cain is *NOT* the deadliest thing under the age of 18 on the planet.....

*sighs* :/


Andrew NDB 10-07-2019 05:13 PM

With no Barbara and a Black Mask that bears no resemblance to Black Mask. And apparently none of them have their costumes.

Mister.Weirdo 10-07-2019 08:12 PM

Honestly the trailer was pretty bad. I'm okay with them using Harley Quinn, but if they wanted to make a Harley Quinn movie, they should have just made a Harley Quinn movie. Instead it looks like they're wasting Huntress and Black Canary in the process. Lets just say, I have my doubts about its quality.

Yeesh. And yikes. It looks like if you took Suicide Squad and Feminism and threw it in a blender and hit frappe.

Michael Heide 01-09-2020 09:36 PM

I would feel a lot better about this if they hadn't kept the dumb face tattoos.

Space Cop 01-09-2020 09:59 PM

^Meh, I probably agree with both of you and I would've preferred if she had used the Betty-Boop accent but I liked Robbie as Harley (imo, she was not one of the weaknesses in SS).

Parrylakks 01-10-2020 02:56 AM

Birds of Prey without Babs doesn't feel like Birds of Prey. That said, I'll watch it, I'll buy it, and I'll watch it again. It's a DC movie. I own them all... even Steel... and Catwoman... and Jonah Hex. It's like an addiction.

Michael Heide 01-10-2020 03:05 PM

Since November, I've been recording a German-language podcast with a friend. Each week, we're watching a different comic book adaptation (live-action, animation, from America, Japan, Europe, whatever). Our Top 5 right now are Into the Spider-Verse, Superman 78, Blade 1, Batman 89 and Valerian.

This is going to be the first movie we watch in theaters. And I don't want to.
