Comic book movies feel super heterosexual now.
Like 90s back the movies were so dramatic and flamboyant and extra. Like 90s era Riddler and Two Face were so fucking extra.
New Riddler in upcoming movie so far seems very very straight.
Even Birds of Prey felt straight except for the literal blink and you’ll miss it half second showing a drawing of Harley hooking up with a woman in the opening explanation of who Harley Quinn is if you don’t know. Somehow.
I don’t know how to properly explain it just the movies now don’t feel the same like in some ways it’s good but mostly it’s like somebody said no more fun.
Except like the new Suicide Squad movie looks like the good things from current comic book films and the good parts from the old ones so can’t wait to see how that plays out.

since the one thing that’s getting me through midterms season rn is the hysterical nature of a gotham city sirens apartment au I randomly conjured up at like 4am the other day, here are some misc headcannons from it:
harley's doing a dual med school & phd program in psychiatry and specializing in trauma response research, pam’s finishing up her botanical biochemistry phd, and selina’s honestly just vibing
no really, every time the other girls ask selina what she’s doing or how she got the money to buy them a certain gift she just shrugs and says a different occupation each time making them purposefully outlandish (“no really, I got this when I was a chef’s assistant in France,” “oh that one? this little trinket I got when I was consulting on an archaeological dig the other week, mhm,” “I just purchased build a bear workshop, so that’s why I could afford these diamonds for all of us”)
harley has adhd and you can’t change my mind
on that note, she just does flips and handstands and shit at random and it’s always so distracting to pam because she needs to study but anytime harley’s abs flash they obliterate any thoughts pam had in her head
they actually got a gymnastics beam installed into the corner of their living room by the door to pam’s lab
bruce hasn’t dropped out of med school (yet) and him and harley are best buds in class because they both love to tear the shit out of old (and frankly racist & sexist) doctors/medical theories
bruce is awkward and bad at socializing and harley is one of the most popular girls in the program and they are a funky lil duo
in fact the first time selina introduces bruce to the rest of the girls harley and bruce are just like “wait a fuckin’ minute now—” [insert spiderman clone meme] also I drew this one so here it is
pam has a garden on their balcony and she spends hours there
she also is the most chill person on the planet. harley could literally fall from the roof and pass by her lab window on the way down and pam would just sigh deeply and take the elevator down to collect her gf
harley and selina have the absolute most inside jokes and also are like annoying sisters to one another
“reeeeed tell kyle that she needs to eat more than just piz—” “quinn shut the fuck up or I’m going to beat your ass” “I’d like to see you try—” [clattering noises and then someone falling onto the hardwood]
barbara might as well live at their apartment, she’s literally over every single day
they have movie nights constantly (it’s a nice way to avoid doing work)
pam might be quiet but she will roast the living shit out of you if provoked (which is more often than she would like)
when bruce drops out and takes over wayne techn and starts adopting these random kids he drops them off at the apartment even though all the girls (except harley) are like dude really
yeah harley just becomes the best aunt
anyway enjoy this personal reference doc to myself for my future sketches
