    To Margot Robbie's credit, BoP only happened because she made it happen. They offered her a Harley solo film. She insisted they do BoP instead because she was a fan of the comics.



    This is simulatenously fair and doesn't really change my point that after Suicide Squad WB gave Robbie more input at all.

    Potato potato.

    I would say being the leading lady in Scorsese's biggest (financial) hit along with her other high profile works means the disaster that was SS don't help her career massively.

    Her performance in it and other things that made BoP the only viable follow through from SS is on her back and not DC, they wanted SS2.



    Suicide Squad made 750 million dollars. People didn't like it but it was a huge success and DC wanted, and are getting, both Suicide Squad 2 and Birds of Prey and at least one other spinoff (Gotham City Sirens) starring Harley. Obviously she gets credit for that too but the idea that DC/WB get no credit for seeing something there (in the sucess of an ensemble including Will Smith ffs) and putting bank behind expanding it is bonkers to me.

    Robbie was a big star anyway, SS and BoP did nothing to enhance her name.



    She was fairly big off the back of Wolf of Wall Street but Suicide Squad earned so much money and so much positive attention on Harley that she got creative input and producer duties that corner of the DCEU and she's also become a producer on other films, and generally put herself into a position where she can pick her projects much better (which has also netted her two Oscar nominations and four at the BAFTAs).

    Megastar might have been too strong a word? But she's definitely bigger now as an actor and as I say far more influential on the production side than she was before Suicide Squad.

    That said, Sarah Michelle Gellar (and many fans) famously disagreed with the Buffy / Spike relationship because she didn't feel like it was representative of who Buffy would be after losing Angel..but apparently Joss insisted that Buffy have a love interest.

    So at the very least the bad writing/character tendencies were already present in the BUFFY days, as was disagreeing with his cast and vetoing their feelings.



    I mean, a showrunner overuling his cast on how their character should go isn't intrinsically arsehole behaviour, ultimately it's really part of the job. It might be the wrong decision but it's got to be done sometimes. It isn't really till the Charisma Carpenters stuff that you can start really start saying 'well we shoulda known' type things.



    How much this will affect him will depend sadly on how much others speak out, since Ray Fisher isn't hugely cloutful. If Gal Gadot speaks out you have to imagine he's done(and gotta give credit where credit is due to the DCEU they pushed two women from stardom to can-push-things-in-Hollywood megastardom, something Marvel has signally failed to do, so fair fucks for that).

    Think she's having the same reaction as all of us tbh. Oh that's terrible that happened oh wait there's more oh wait it's still terrible but now from every angle fuck it I'm going to sleep.
