The director of Suicide Squad will return to the franchise to help lead the Harley Quinn spin-off movie. This project now has a name, Gotham City Sirens, and we’re expecting it to also feature Poison Ivy and Catwoman.
THR exclusively reported this news today, and it proves that Warner Bros. were happy enough with Ayer’s first DC film.
This news not only confirms the project is developing well, but it gives us the first look at the title of the movie. This title, over the rumoured Birds of Prey title, suggests the movie will focus on villainy more than heroism, which is arguable when it comes to Suicide Squad. The marketing suggested they’re the worst heroes ever, but the team proved otherwise in the movie.
The screenplay for Gotham City Sirens is being written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, and the movie will be produced and directed by Ayer. Read our review of Suicide Squad, and check out the upcoming comic book movies!
