The DC Extended Universe may not have gone exactly how Warner Bros. would have initially envisioned so far – especially in terms of critical response – but the studio did at least strike box office gold with this year’s Suicide Squad. At the center of that movie was Margot Robbie’s endearingly insane interpretation of Harley Quinn; and given the clear popularity of the character, it perhaps wasn’t surprising when talk of a Harley-based spin-off movie – now officially titled Gotham City Sirens – began to surface.
Although not many details are currently known about the project, it has been announced that Suicide Squad director David Ayer will be in the director’s chair, with Robbie herself taking on an executive producer role. In Batman lore, the Sirens are a group of female Batman villains primarily composed of Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy – and Ayer has heavily suggested on Twitter that those three will indeed be primary figures in Gotham City Sirens.
It appears, however, that Harley Quin may not be the only DCEU alumni rocking up in Gotham. In an interview with MTV, Will Smith – who played Deadshot in Suicide Squad – has confirmed that he would be happy to appear in the female-led movie should Margot Robbie wish him to. Asked whether he’d like to get involved, Smith claimed, “I’d definitely love to be in it. I love Margot Robbie, I would do, like, anything she wants to do.”
