Director David Ayer Says ‘Gotham City Sirens’ Is On Hold
Just a few weeks remain until the premiere of the Margot Robbie Suicide Squad spinoff Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). However, the future of the DCEU remains unclear. David Ayer, who directed 2016’s, Suicide Squad, was tapped to direct a live-action adaptation of the popular Gotham City Sirens comic series.
However, the director recently confirmed that the film is currently paused. Rumors of Robbie starring in a bevy of all-female team-up movies set in Gotham City began early last year. Birds of Prey will see her Harley Quinn leading the likes of Black Canary and the Huntress into battle against Black Mask.
Gotham City Sirens will likely see Quinn teaming up with popular anti-heroes Catwoman and Poison Ivy. However, if Birds of Prey proves to be a success at the box office, a sequel could be rushed into production.
Margot Robbie is the focal point for all of these films going forward and is clearly valuable to Warner Bros. David Ayer will remain busy, however, with The Dirty Dozen remake and a rumored sequel to Netflix’s Bright.
