It's out, The Batman costume test with Robert Pattinson. Of course, people are already making their voices heard. You can find plenty of likes and plenty of dislikes. Kevin Smith reportedly loves it. Meanwhile, some are comparing it to Netflix's Daredevil. Let us look beyond pure aesthetic taste. You can like it or hate it, not the case here. Robert Pattinson's costume from this teaser can already tell us about the story and this Batman.
We finally have our first all-female team-up comic book film with the Birds of Prey. Honestly, I do not think people know how big of a deal this is. A film based on this premise, along with its vast array of characters has quite a future to offer. Sadly, many are already claiming it a flop, even before its release. In addition, many non-viewers want it to flop to essentially keep their fragile egos in flux. Here’s a list of what a successful Birds of Prey box-office run could give us!
Birds of Prey is out in theaters now. Maybe now people can drop their nitpicky details and first-world complaints. Unfortunately, a sizeable chunk of comic book fandom does not behave that way. Going back to the trailer fan criticism has risen from the portrayal of Cassandra Cain’s character. Fans may know her best as Batgirl or Orphan. Even general audiences know this particular character never appeared in the film. However, one key aspect of character going decades back is her muteness. I dare say, it is for the best they left this out.
Birds of Prey is soon upon is and already a narrative is forming, calling the film a flop. How can this be you ask? How can what essentially be a Harley Quinn film be on the path to box office dud? First, this is really speculation. Rumors and insight be damned though, this speculation is sexist, misogynic fan boy wishing for a commercial failure. Our first totally female driven comic-book film is upon us, where men and fan boys have to sit back and cry over it.
DCEU's Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is nearly upon us. The marketing is in full swing and Margot Robbie spoke recently on the film, confirming the lack of Jared Leto's Joker from Suicide Squad.
Interesting how such a song has real use in the Joker film. At times songs in a film will be picked out due to the director's bias or just because it sounds good in the given scene. At other times there is an actual artistic reason for selecting a song in film's soundtrack. What makes Frank Sinatra's song so wonderful is how it applies to both our protagonist, Arthur Fleck and a particular theme in the film.
