Ollie has the money of Wayne and Stark, Stark's sarcasm, Wayne's playboy antics and you could do a movie with him for under $80 million. Seems like a no-brainer to me. They need to do it before MCU gets smart and does a Hawkeye solo.
    They’re making a Hawkeye TV series for Disney+ so I doubt we’ll see a Hawkeye movie. But with Arrow ending, yeah I think it would be a good time to make a Green Arrow movie.

    "What it proved for Warner Bros. was that DC Films could make three winning solo superhero movies in a row and that they could make a qualitative winner from a comparatively cult-level character."

    Of course, that little word leaves out both Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League.

    Just feels like a good character to expand the DCEU with. He's likable, he's not totally unknown, he's "fun" and "funny" (for the Rotten Tomatoes crowd) and he helps balance the DCEU with non-Gotham world building. I think Ollie would be a huge hit with the General Audience.

    I read comments on this forum that captain marvel was boring and that Shazam would be a sure hit. We fans tend to be too biased. We made ours all the positive reviews, well reviews don't mean a sure hit at BO, Aquaman hadn't half the positive reviews of Shazam, how it ended we all know.
    It's not just fans who think Shazam is great, but the general audience, too. Right now, there's just too much vying for everyone's attention, be it movies (Endgame), TV (Game of Thrones), sports(WWF, College Basketball Championship, the Masters) and everything else that's going on. Transformers made $1B and look where that franchise ended up.
    Shazam is on pace to make 3x its budget, and is in company with films like Batman Begins and Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse. Hopefully both it and Spiderverse will perform like The Dark Knight on their sophomore outings.

    I think that means DC should stay away from team up films for a while, unless Birds of Prey and The Suicide Squad are both winners and turn the tide. Hoping that's the case.
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    I'm really interested in seeing how Birds and Squad may be linked. If Harley is in the "sequel" it means that the Birds handed her back to Waller (or she turned herself in in exchange for getting help from the Birds with Cassie). I'm also wondering if martial artists like Canary and Tiger are linked.

    If she's a martial artist. In the teaser she had a bat. Black Canary wouldn't need a bat.

    It would be nice to get a comic-accurate Green Arrow in the movies.

    I'm just curious whether they would keep the edgy and dark tone of the show and the Grell run or go for a more "lighthearted Batman" take.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't much, if any, connection between the two films beyond Harley being shared.

    He's speculated to play Peacemaker.

    I thought Dave Bautista was speculated to play Peacemaker.

    Bautista will be busy with the new Snyder's zombie movie, he can't be in Gunn's SS.

    Batista presumably still has one appearance as Drax in the can for GOTG Vol. 3 as well and I don't think Marvel Studios would be open to him playing a DC role before that.
