There's a lot of confusion about what that Joker and Harley Quinn movie means for Gotham City Sirens, and here's what is happening...
With the announcement this week of both a standalone The Joker origin film, and yesterday’s reveal of a Joker and Harley Quinn film, it’s understandable that there’s some confusion with what’s going on with DC Films in the near future. There have been some rumors that the clownish couple's cinematic adventure is replacing Gotham City Sirens. Well, it turns out that isn't the case at all, as Gotham City Sirens remains a priority for Warner Bros and DC.
Forbes, which previously debunked the rumors of a Joker/Harley movie replacing Gotham City Sirens, has further confirmed with Warner Bros. that both films are currently in development. A source told Forbes writer Mark Hughes: “Harley, Catwoman and Poison Ivy are super important to us – And a super cool team, too!”
Gotham City Sirens was announced as a movie about three female Batman villains: Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn. David Ayer signed on as director, opting not to direct Suicide Squad 2.
“It’s a story about three fantastic women who’re trying to find their way in the world, and realize that they have more power together than they do individually,” Ayer told IGN of Gotham City Sirens. “I have daughters, and I want to create something that might be able to help them get along in the world a little bit.”
This report is just the latest in a busy week for the DCEU – particularly within the world of Batman. Multiple films involving the Joker have been announced to be in development this week, and The Batman director Matt Reeves clarified that the film would remain in the DCEU after the speculation online that it would not be.
Suicide Squad 2 is still in development as well, and The Hollywood Reporter reports that Warner Bros. is looking to fast-track this sequel. The Joker and Harley Quinn spinoff will be released sometime after Suicide Squad 2. DC is also working on a standalone Joker movie, but this one won’t take place in the DC Extended Universe and will not star Jared Leto.
