The Hollywood Reporter are reporting (funnily enough) that there’s a new DC/Warner Bros. film in the works, titled Gotham City Sirens (GCS). The film will more than likely follow the comic arc of the same name, focusing on three of Batman’s more famous female villains; Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy.
Margot Robbie is set to return to the role of Harley Quinn, with David Ayer returning to direct a DCEU film off the back of Suicide Squad.
Now, if it’s concerning to you to hear that David Ayer is returning, I can’t really blame you for that. I enjoyed Suicide Squad however it did still leave a bit of a bad taste in the mouth. Though, I think that had more to do with studio intervention than Ayer himself. Ayer has more-or-less a hit or miss filmography, but when it lands it lands well (End of Watch, Fury).
Hopefully DC and Warner Bros. will have learned from their mistakes and will give Ayer a little more creative freedom. And I wouldn’t mind seeing an R-rated film in the DCEU as was, reportedly, Ayers intention for Suicide Squad.
GCS is yet to receive a release date (also, you know, to be confirmed as a thing in general by Warner Bros.)
Who would you guys like to see fill the roles of Catwoman and Poison Ivy?
Personally, I’d like to see Daisy Ridley and Bella Thorne respectively, but that’s just me.
