Ironically I think a Gotham Sirens movie would’ve done better. No one in the general audience has a fucking clue who Black Canary or Huntress are. Harley, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy though? Much bigger draws.
Also this movie really wasn't really appealing to few fans BOP actually has, I've seen many of them( especially Cassandra Cain fans) uninterested in the movie since it's been pretty clear since day one that this a solo Harley Quinn movie using the BOP name for some reason
Gotham City Siren could have kept a lot of the key themes too. Kept the breakup in. Have Ivy take Canary's role as the powered one and be there to support Harley emotionally. Huntress is replaced by Catwoman and instead of
I think it's really this... She can be a fun part of a team, but solo ? And the "fans", are they old enough to see a R rated movie ?
Sure, she'll still be a big hit for Halloween costumes, it's her main appeal to the general audience after all.
Truth!There could be underperforming movies, like Shazam or BoP but I'm not worried. What is really important for me is that the critics are good now. So WB has found a formula and won the critics hearts again.
Why are we sad ? It's because we fear that we won't be seeing more DC movies. I don't care if BoP underperforms as long as i'm sure that I'm gonna have a lot of other DC properties. So, sure, WB could cancel their futur movies because of this failure, but I don't believe it for one second.
We already have WW84, The Batman, The Suicide Squad, Shazam 2, The Flash and Black Adam in production. Everything's fine !
Failures in cinema are pretty common, it happens to every major studio. WB will bounce back, and I'm sure that WW84 will be a great success.
So it wasn't a move by WB, it was one by the ticket sellers. That's even weirder.Warner Bros. hasn’t changed the name of “Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)” to “Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey,” an individual with knowledge at the studio told TheWrap.
Nonetheless, top theater chains Regal Cinemas, Cinemark and AMC Theatres updated their websites this week after the DC comic-book adaptation’s disappointing opening weekend to put Margot Robbie’s lead character front and center: “Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey.”
Well not really, if it’s not selling well they’re clearly hoping to draw more people in by making sure you know it’s a Harley movie. But who the hell doesn’t know this is a Harley Movie?Warner Bros. didn't change the name of "Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)" to "Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey."www.thewrap.com
