Are you - or is anyone else - looking forward to this one?

I am interested. As far as I am concerned, Margot Robbie knocked it out of the park playing Quinn in Suicide Squad. She is enough to get me into the theater. How this new movie plays out is secondary to me for right now. I do like the trailer though.

For your sake, I hope it's good. I could not have less interest in this one and I still have to wonder how it got made.

I agree about Robbie as Harley Quinn but I don't think even that is enough to carry this film.

This looks more like Catwoman than Wonder Woman to me.

I will be just fine if the movie bombs. :muttley:

Not sure how its probable viability will compare with that already established by Wonder Woman. I think its chances are good by comparison in one aspect. Wonder Woman was based solidly on the character's comic book origins. I believe that is a key asset of selling any of these comic book adaptations to audiences.

For me, one of the big reasons why Catwoman failed was due to lack of authentic character portrayals, which included the main lead lol! I think the studios and producers were so desperate to cash in on Catwoman that they were willing to back a project that was barely (what is a better word than barely?) based on anything associated with the DC Comics universe.

My hopes are that Birds of Prey will follow the Suicide Squad movie's adaptation formula in regards to a large ensemble of DC fictional characters. The trailer *seems* to do just that but here are my initial concerns based on my own They May Be Trying To Do Too Dang Much For No Good Reason philosophy:

Robbie is more than capable in providing adequately appropriate comedic relief. So why is comedic actress Ali Wong getting thrown into the mix? She is associated with Montoya (Rosie Perez) and the police from what I have read but is that necessary for her to gain major billing for this storyline?

Ewan McGregor has the acting chops for sure. I would think Black Mask would be enough of an antagonist to carry the movie but it seems Mr. Zsasz (Chris Messina) will be a major player too. I am yelling inside my head WHY?????

Finally, Cassandra Cain. This particular character has a multi-faceted background. The character's parents are League of Assassins big timers Lady Shiva and David Cain. Cassandra Cain has been one of the Batgirls, Black Bat and Orphan. Who will she be in the movie? The trailer provides zero clues from one I can see. In fact, I have watched it several times and the trailer makes Cain character look like a timid little girl in my eyes.

So, I am interested but at the same time my They May Be Trying To Do Too Much For No Good Reason feeling is poking the back of my brain with a red hot needle. :(

lol. That is one way to look at it. Another possible way is looking at how I have been rating these kinds of movies overall. One MIGHT think I enjoy them collectively a little more than others here do. ;)

OK, they got me! This was a DeepFake.
I'm not all that familiar with George Lucas, but I was pretty sure that wasn't him. The hair is really big, for one thing, and the guy looks like a pillow, but mostly I couldn't imagine him actually saying all that in an interview. Lol

They got me for a bit. That deepfake technology is some scary stuff with what they can potentially do with it.

That was hilarious! The laugh was killing me. :laugh:On a serious note, I think the sarcastic commentary about the prequels was not that fair off from what the real Lucas would have said. I enjoyed them, I think a lot more than the average audience. Jar Jar Binks was Lucas' biggest mistake though. :facepalm:
