Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn Will Return in All-Female Spinoff ‘Gotham City Sirens’
This year’s hit film Suicide Squad is getting a sort-of sequel in the form of Gotham City Sirens, an all-female team-up of DC’s most evil villainesses.
Suicide Squad‘s fun and irreverent tone made it a hit with mainstream audiences, making $745.6 million at the worldwide box office. One of the clear standouts of the film was Margot Robbie’s infectious portrayal of Harley Quinn.
It seems Warner Bros. has noticed Robbie’s excellence as well because the film is now getting a sequel-of-sorts in the form of the Harley Quin-led spinoff film titled Gotham City Sirens. The offshoot story will showcase a few of the numerous and formidable female foes DC Comics has to offer.
The 2009 comic book series of the same name featured the likes of Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn as they are forced to band together to protect themselves in an increasingly dangerous Gotham City.
DC Films heads Geoff Johns and Jon Berg will produce Sirens as well as Margot Robbie herself in an executive producer role. Warner Bros. still has plans to pursue a Suicide Squad sequel, but this project seems to be further up on DC’s list.
The film has no release date as of yet, but you can check back with DFTG as soon as more news hits.
Do you love the idea of female villains starring in their own film? Do you wish a Suicide Squad sequel instead? Should a Superman movie be DC’s top priority right now?
