"I think there's so much she could explore," she added. "Although it's not up to me! But I think with the Birds of Prey franchise, there's so many characters within the DC universe that you could explore."

Wait, there's a Birds of Prey franchise? When did that happen.

She gets so dizzy, even walking in a straight line.

Enjoyed the Birds of Prey movie. My only gripe is that I wish she had used her power more than once. Would definitely watch a Black Canary series if they kept her badass and dont get muddled down with stupid unnecessary details in her backstory just to reveal to us that her mother's name is Martha

I'd watch a spinoff about the breakfast sandwich.

Lucky that you only had one gripe. Rosie Perez was a tad old for her part but that's just me being picky. Mary Elizabeth Winstead acted like she had been hired 5 minutes before shooting started & no one really explained her character to her. Cassandra Cain was nothing like in the comic aside from female & Asian. Margot Robbie got off a few good jokes and the fight in the police station was pretty cool but a lot of the time she seemed off, which is the best way I can put it. It was like she was acting like someone acting like Harley Quinn instead of just being Harley, which she did a good job of in the first Suicide Squad movie. And no Barbara Gordon at all? You can't have Birds of Prey without Barbara! 

For me this was a "I saw that movie once & that was once too many".

Birds of Prey was a weird amalgam of Snyderverse and the direction DC started trying to go in with Aquaman, WW, and Shazam. There was some good stuff in there, but the movie largely sucked in a way that I actually don't want to point any fingers. Whenever they do the movie version of Crisis on Infinite Earths (we know the CW version doesn't really count because movie DC farked things up too much for that), I hope they keep this direction for Harley and the cast.

/and most of the CW stuff
//not you movie Flash and Cyborg
///come on in, Doom Patrol Cyborg

After pretty much everything the DC universe has made lately I watched the movie with drastically

and didn't really mind it. It wasn't a great movie by any standards but I didn't hate it. I will give you MEWs acting was quite wooden and dull, probably not her fault though

I think that it's a pretty safe bet that we won't see Whedon returning for any spinoff at this point. Dude's name is poison now.

Perhaps they can give it to Gunn.

Since she's Black Canary, shouldn't that be an asbestos mine?

I am sure there is someone out there that could do it besides Gunn. If you start stretching him too thin, the quality will suffer or never get done because he'll have too much on his plate.

I wonder if they will mention Oliver Queen in this one

No she must be canceled because she hasn't condemned and disowned her brother.

I enjoyed it for what it was. It wasn't Birds of Prey. It was Harley and Friends Super Power Hour.

And I'm fine with that.

It was a welcome change of pace to see a movie that wasn't about the end of the world, but this was just bad. This version of Harley Quinn was not enough to center a movie around.

When Rosie Perez's t-shirt is the best joke in the movie, you know it's bad.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ewan McGregor were both a lot of fun, but that movie was a mess.

Why is "fan" pluralized in the headline?
