Man I hope BOP makes a bit of a comeback run, I was really hoping we could get a Gotham City Sirens movie :(
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
looking for revenge she's trying to steal the diamond too.
. You can leave Montoya in and give her roughly the same story. Maybe change Cass to Harper Row. The movie can still end roughly the same too.
Instead of the team at the end being the Birds of Prey with Harley and Cass off on their own it's the Sirens with Montoya off on her on.
. You can still do the breaking away from Joker story, just in a different way. Ivy probably fucks the budget up though.

A Gotham sirens with Harley poison ivy and Catwoman probably would have been a huge hit. Then after that do birds of prey

I mean didn’t most people think Birds of Prey was going to be successful too and look where we’re at.

people don’t care as much about Harley as we thought.
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 ?

Harley is too big to fail.
Sure, she'll still be a big hit for Halloween costumes, it's her main appeal to the general audience after all.

The marketing was everywhere, I'm not sure it's the problem...

I have a feeling this thread is 2 secs from being doom and gloom again. ...if it's not there already. I doubt dc is gonna over correct because of this.....


I'll say this. Harley is a popular character. But a character that has a wide age range of fans. So the kids that enjoy her for super hero girls....are not gonna be able to see this movie. Which clashes with the more darker aspects of her character. Add to the fact the marketing for the movie was pretty non existent, you get people saying they didn't even know the movie was out. Like i fell like shazam had more marketing than bop.

Also, again i find it funny how the boxoffice thread got way more participants than the actual bop threads. Basically when it was a good movie...they couldn't really say anything. Now it's a poorly performing movie....and everyone comes out of the woodwork..

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.

I'm just happy that DC is still trying different shit.

Disney's problem is that the characters might vary, but it's always the same template.

At least the other Marvel stuff like Logan and Spider-verse bent things.

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.”
So it wasn't a move by WB, it was one by the ticket sellers. That's even weirder.

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?

So, looking at the HQ in Suicide Squad thread, it seems like Era has decided that BoP is trash too, and she is too good for the DCEU, so we can officially go back to doom and gloom, Dierce is gonna post those same sad reaction pics again.

It’s been a chore lately cleaning my YouTube feed of man children gloating about the BoP box office. These people really have no lives.

I do wish box office totals weren't the be all end all to some people. The Road To El Dorado didn't make back its budget at the box office, yet it's one of the best animated films of all time.

Some details on Batman shooting at the Cardington Airfield shed. I believe it was previously said they were seeking ~500 extras for this sequence, which will shoot over the next two weeks.
