In Movie 18, we got that initial suspicion from Shinichi/Conan that the BO was behind initial sniping, and then a one-line reference by Andre shortly after the opening sequence... and that was it. In Movie 22, we have that crow (assuming it's a shot that won't be cut from the movie or was made specifically for the trailer), and we'll probably have an explicit reference and one of those profile shots were they appear in the background of the character thinking about them.
Certainly, unlike Shuichi/Subaru, Rei/Toru is still currently
infiltrating the BO, so odds are higher that they'll have more of a preference in Movie 22 than Movie 18... but, then again, Scarlet Showdown (with the exception of Vermouth's appearance at the beginning and end of the case) had no BO involvement, and was Rei/Toru and the NPA Vs Shinichi/Conan, Shuichi/Subaru, the Kudos, and Jodie and Andre.
I just can't imagine the "BO shenanigans" will overtake, or have a significant impact on, this movie's plot. All the movies where the BO had a significant impact on the plot featured full-throated advertisements of such—since such full-throated BO advertisement hasn't taken place, I'm going to assume that, indeed, this is a Rei/NPA/PSB movie, with no significant impact on the plot by the BO.
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
