WTF? I am quite surprised by those notices.

I did not expect this film to become some sort of awards contender.

Janney is expected to get extraordinary reviews, but if Robbie gets an Oscar nomination (a fitting addition to her ascendant starpower), they fucking need to finally get moving with the Gotham City Sirens thing (I hope).

Right?

Nah they'll just make 3 Harley/Joker movies, because that was obviously the aspect of Suicide Squad everyone liked the most :sparta:
