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.
