Looks good.  Please, please be better than Suicide Squad, though!

Looks like a passably interesting Harley movie, with practically no Birds of Prey. No doubt explaining the subtitle to the Birds of Prey movie (i.e. it's all about Harley).

Seems just as well, since there's very little about any of the BoP in this trailer which signifies their characters at all. "Harley inspires random young women to cowgirl up" could be a good movie maybe, but =/= the BoP, which was a colorful character-driven ensemble epic anchored on legacy characters.

I defy anyone on Earth to tell me, looking at that thumbnail, without cheating and going to imdb, which one is Batgirl, which one is the Huntress, and which one is the Black Canary -- and which one is the other Batgirl!

(Spoiler: one of those characters, arguably the most important to the BoP, isn't in the film anyway. I have no idea yet who the fourth woman in that snapshot is, behind the other two. Possibly just a random bystander, who happens to look no less random bystandery than the three standing with Harley.)

 >:( I'm actively annoyed, and I'm not even a BoP fanboy. I feel bad for its fans, though, because I understand the importance of the series in its context.
