    This must've been the fastest shoot for a comic book movie ever.

    Yeah that was some extremely fast shooting. But if movie is already shot then why wait for such long time to release?
    Post Production can't take that long time. This movie is hardly going to be CGI-fest with bunch of street levelers for that.

    this has suicide squad level dumpster fire written all over it tbh.

    DC should keep their focus on making movies like shazam. not regress back to this shit.

    My expectations are very low.

    I do have a few opinions though.

    No Poison Ivy? Pretty shocking since she is Harley’s main squeeze.

    Cassandra Cain is in this. I’m excited about that since I love the character.

    Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress sounds fun.

    Leak script has Black mask Gay, Cassandra Cain stealing his nudes and he’s going after it.


    I swear if this turns out to be true I’m done with DC movies officially.

    I enjoyed Aquaman and Shazam, there is still hope. Plus Dwayne Johnson is playing Black Adam.

    No Fam, this would break me. Black Mask is one of my favorites B list villains.

    Birds of Prey Test Screenings Reportedly Has Audiences and WB Execs Split


    The eagerly-anticipated Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) isn't due in theaters until early next year, but it sounds like the upcoming DC film may have hit a bit of a snag, at least in terms to how it's being received. Test screenings of reportedly has audiences and executives split in their thoughts about the film.

    On Twitter, Screen Rant's Stephen M. Colbert that the audience test screening of the -starring film had people "raving about it" but the same could not be said for the internal Warner Bros. test screenings. Apparently, the executives had the exact opposite reaction to the film.

    The split in reception to is concerning for fans, as evidenced by the responses to Colbert's tweet. Many have chimed in that, if Warner Bros. gets heavily involved and attempts to change Birds of Prey, it could be another in a line of incidents in which they appear to self-sabotage their superhero films by demanding changes. For some that brings up Justice League which saw director Zack Snyder depart the film and replaced by Joss Whedon, who made changes to the film with extensive reshoots.

    However, in the case of , the studio may choose to take a lighter-handed approach, potentially due to the involvement of Robbie. Robbie has been deeply involved with far beyond her starring role as Harley Quinn. Robbie is also a producer on the film, originally pitching it to Warner Bros. back in 2015 as an R-rated girl gang film.

    "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," "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."

    An off-beat, fun approach also appears to be a big part of . In a recent interview Cassandra Cain actress was asked what her most memorable experience on the film's set was, and she .

    "We had this one scene where Margot [Robbie], Jurnee [Smollett-Bell], Rosie [Perez], Mary [Elizabeth Winstead] and I had to improv the majority of it," Basco said. "That entire day we were laughing, making jokes, and having a great time. The director, Cathy Yan, told us to do a bunch of silly things that made us smile the whole day. The location was also near a Shake Shack, so in our spare time we just ate burgers, fries, and a bunch of other junk food. That day was super fun and didn't feel like work at all."

    Upcoming DC movies include Joker on October 10th, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020, The Batman on June 25, 2021, The Suicide Squad on August 6, 2021, and Aquaman 2 on December 16, 2022.

    Cassandra Cain is a very serious character right?
    Assassin ?
    I hope they don't change her origin and turn her into some street thief. That would suck donkey balls.

    World War Z is a movie that became passable after a lot of cooks in the kitchen. There aren’t a lot of examples obviously. :lmao

    Is it really wise to release a movie containing the bat family when we still haven't see one solo Batman movie?

    Yeah. We've been so overexposed with Batman already that it isn't really difficult to fill in the blanks.

    I don't know.

    I would have preferred these characters appearing in a Batman movie before they have their own movie.

    I still think DCEU just should have said that The Dark Knight Trilogy was part of DCEU & be done with it.

    I don't.
    I never want a movie to flop on purpose. You should always want movie to be good.
    I grew up with DC animated movies and shows. I kinda love these characters. I want them to transition to big screen in his manner.

    Cassandra Cain is in it. Margot. And you have MEW as Huntress. That is enough reason for me to hope it is a hit.
