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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Yo.

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* :/

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

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.
