This movie is a vehicle for Harley, though. When has Harley ever been on the Birds Of Prey? She doesn't belong there.

Who says she's in the BOP, it can easily be a BOP v GCS movie. In the multiple scripts that they have, Harley and Barbara are the only characters in all of them

Yes, because DC introducing multiple characters in one film has gone over soooo well. Now they're going to introduce two teams with only one pre-established character present. Sounds like a great idea! /s

The contrasting results of The Avengers and Justice League seems to have led to an Internet wisdom absolute- the characters in any team-up film must have had their own feature film beforehand, or the audience won’t care.

In the hundred or so years of cinema before Marvel perfected the art of filmmaking, there were some fairly successful action films- The Great Escape, The Dirty Dozen, The Wild Bunch, The Magnificent Seven, Reservoir Dogs, and The Guns of Navarone are a few that come to mind- that featured huge casts of characters introduced in those, and no previous, films. And the filmmakers did a pretty good job of making audiences care enormously about the fates those characters.
It has, and can be, done.

She does if she's battling the Birds of Prey. If anything the idea of a BoP v GCS makes far more sense than just having the Gotham City Sirens. What exactly is a Gotham City Sirens film going to be about anyway? Catwoman is the only true anti-hero in that group, you can't make them all that way, it defeats the purpose of calling them bad guys.

There is a case that they are again putting the cart before the horse with this idea.

But this isn't the justice league. Catwoman, Ivy, Huntress, and Black Canary aren't going to have their own movies before this, that's ridiculous. Guardians of the Galaxy had all new characters in an ensemble cast. The problem with JL wasn't that, it had to do with Joss Whedon and WB's lack of direction.

Anything can work as long as it's done well. Any premise! Especially this one.

I think an awesome title for this movie is hiding in plain sight.
It should be called Gotham Girl Gangs.
That encompasses both the Birds of Prey and Gotham City Sirens.
And it sounds like a ‘50’s pulp fiction paperback or a grindhouse exploitatation film- either of which I’d really want to read/see!

But Marvel introduced multiple heroes in one film and it has gone sooo well, (Vision, Scarlett Witch in Avengers: AoU; Spider-Man, Black Panther in Civil War)

It just shows that it's execution that matters.. not the approach.

Agreed.

If Catwoman, Ivy, Huntress, and Black Canary are going to have their own movies, then I'm still waiting for solo movies on -

Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, Vision, Scarlett Witch, Falcon and War-Machine.

I never claimed that all of these characters need solo films. Please don't put words in my mouth. I was simply saying that DC has a problem with team films, clearly. So having not one but two teams in one film is a recipe for disaster.

As far as i'm concerned AoU and CW aren't any better or worse than JL. It's not about execution or approach, it about brand name. DC can't win... ever. Not until the MCU monster implodes or DC is bought by Disney.

Just look at my signature to you see the Doom of DC

Majority of Marvel fans have always supported MCU movies, even when it took certain liberties.


DC fans however were always a divided lot, they were divided over Nolan's portrayal of Batman ("Not comic book accurate enough"), to Superman Returns Superman (Creepy stalker, dead-beat dad Superman), to Man Of Steel Superman (Emo-Superman), WB should not look at fans approval for their comic book movies to get success.


WB needs to win over the general audience, not DC fans to get success. General Audience liked Wonder Woman and they made it successful, for that to happen, they have to execute the ideas in a way that general audience will find appealing.
