So Margot Robbie Probably Just Saved The DC Movieverse

Batman V Superman may have made an assload of money its opening weekend, but after that, the box office practically stopped dead in its tracks after word-of-mouth told everyone to avoid a dour shitshow where Batman and Superman act like cocks for three hours. Since then, Warner Bros. has been scrambling to fix the DC Extended Universe – while avoiding the obvious solution of not letting Zack Snyder near anything ever fucking again – and now comes word that Margot Robbie successfully pitched a Harley Quinn movie front-loaded with female DC Comics characters. Something that not even Marvel has had the balls flaps to pull off yet. THR reports:

Details are being closely guarded but names such as Batgirl and Birds of Prey have surfaced, although in what capacity, it’s not clear. Warner Bros. isn’t commenting.
There is also a scribe penning the script but those details, too, are being kept secret, although it is known that the writer is female.

Sources say that Robbie was the impetus for the project, adding that when she got the part for the movie, she dove deep into the comics to learn as much as possible about the character. In the process, she fell for DC’s female characters. She brought on the writer to help develop the project and brought it to Warners, which snapped it up.

What’s even more amazing is, until now, Warner Bros. was banking on Ben Affleck to turn things around by executive producing Justice League and writing/directing a solo Batman movie, so let’s see how he’s handling probably losing a whole bunch of money to make more movies about Boston.

I could literally put one of these in every post. Every post.
