    Agreed, BoP is another success story for the DCEU and for humanity broadly.

    Why is a Barbara who can walk more deserving of being put on the big screen than Oracle?

    It’s funny that after the Justice League disaster there was word that WB was done with the connected DC movieverse, yet almost all of the preceding DC films reference each other. Aquaman brings up the events of Justice League, Shazam has a (kinda) Superman cameo, and Birds of Prey has a ton of Suicide Squad references. So it’s pretty clear that the DCEU is alive and well. Plus we got Ezra Miller’s Flash appearing in the CW Crisis. Despite the setbacks WB knows that fans enjoy the interactions of characters from throughout the comic book universe.

    2 things I disliked about BoP:

    1. Harley Quinn doesn't break up with Joker, he dumps her! She had to move on because she had no choice. What a terrible role model for young people honestly.

    2. They had to put Joker down to elevate Harley (she's the brains), just like how they do it in the Supergirl show and their treatment of Superman. So annoying.
    Harley Quinn isn't a role model and the movie doesn't try to make her one.

    The post-Justice League DC movies aren't a reboot, and they have references to the prior movies. But the new movies are also not a continuation with the old ones. The plotlines are different, the aesthetic is different, and the references are deliberately kept vague and open-ended.

    I'd rather argue that right now we are seeing a transititory period, where the current movies can be set either in the old continuity or in a new coming continuity. At a guess, the final shift will come with either the Batman movie or Gunn's Suicide Squad.
    ęSpeaking generally, it is because of the desire of the tragic poets for the marvellous that so varied and inconsistent an account of Medea has been given outĽ (Diodorus Siculus, The Library of History [4.56.1])

    They wanna pee with the big dogs (MCU) but are too afraid to lift the leg.

    They are the only ones with a solid foundation (characters/IPs/fandom) to do so though. Its just... they are kinda pathetic. Does not even have a the guts to name a connected universe. They have no standing power. Complete lack of endurance paired with must have short term goals paired with "I don't give a crap, just release it so I get more money now" personas like that Monves dude. Jump from one figurehead to another and does not support correctly either of them nor bother getting a new one which MCU clearly shows is needed. On top of that an marketing team full of monkeys that neither understand or want to understand or utilize the fanbase (of the source material).

    ... just my subjective feelings about it.

    I think Ryan Kwanten (Jason from True Blood) could be a good green arrow.

    The problem is DC wants us to see Harley as a good guy when in reality she's a criminal and a bully.
