They found the perfect casting for the Bruce Timm Harley (seriously, check out her overdone Brooklyn/Bugs Bunny accent in THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, she had Harley's voice down to a T), and they turn around and have her play the bastardized "New 52" version. Sigh.

Wait, is Batgirl the girl holding... the bat? That's almost kind of hilarious.

No, Jurnee Smollett-Bell is Black Canary.

What ARE DC up to? I cannot fathom their strategy @ all.

Full "throw stuff at the wall" mode.

SUICIDE SQUAD, while being awful as a film, was kinda of a hit box-office wise and the Harley character proved popular (it's a version I hate but I'll admit Robbie was well cast and did a good job). 

Lots of merchandise got sold, gazillions of girls wore a Harley costume for Halloween and it's time to repackage and sell it again. Leto's Joker, on the other hand, proved to be sorta unpopular and there's also another totally different version premiering like right now so they need another "vehicle" for the Harley character.

So ok, let's throw her in with other female characters of the Batman franchise that kinda no one cares about and see what happens, and let's Hot Topic them up a bit while we're at it. Maybe by sheer luck we'll get yet another hit character. Maybe not, who cares anyway?

That's my mind read of the DC/Warner executive thinking. Needless to say, absolutely everything about this project looks awful to me.

Ewan McGregor is playing Black Mask.  There seems to be one basic detail of the character, included in his name, that they decided to ignore.

This is beyond hilarious.

DC/Warner executive mind read:

Hey, remember that villain role in the Harley and Friends movie we're developing? I just had lunch with Ewan and he said he was interested, can you believe it? He wants to be in this cool Marvel/comics thing (I know we're DC but I didn't want to correct him so he wouldn't be disappointed). Know what that means? Instant greenlight, my man! What are you saying? That the character wears a black mask? Hahaha, oh... well you can forget about that.

Oh wow.  I canít tell what the hell is going on with any of these characters!  
Batgirl is in that picture?  

Batgirl? Really?

Missing this movie will be awesome!

At least Doug Moench and Tom Mandrake will get royalties off Black Mask being in this.

Every cloud...

Why is it that they get the DC shows so right, but most of the movies are so wrong it isn't even funny?

None of the characters are even remotely recognizable. Jurnee Smollett-Bell does look cool, but not anything like Black Canary. That look would work for Knockout or an original character (or a female version of Power Man in a MCU film), but the others look bad.

I haven't watched BLACK LIGHTNING but I've watched all the other CW DC shows, and I don't think that any of them get it right either. (If BATWOMAN is getting it right, I don't know -- I haven't watched it yet.)

Outside of Harely Quinn, I can't identify any of the characters in the picture.

Hard pass from me.

Working visually from right to left, based on the outfits and pulling from decades of viewing Justice League animated adventures, I was wondering why Vixen is wielding a bat and when Apache Chief's powers starting working in reverse.
