Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Suicide Squad, Focus)was already in the works to be reprise her role as Harley Quinn, and produce the standalone movie that would be focussing on her and several other villainesses – however, it’s been officially announced that David Ayer (Suicide Squad) will be reunited with Robbie, but Ayer then went on to post a massive hint to his Twitter that the movie will be based on the Gotham City Sirens comic series.

The comic series (written by Paul Dini and art by Guillem March) featured Harley Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy. Original rumours suggested that the movie was going to be called Birds of Prey, which was the name of a superheroine team led by Barbara Gordon (Batgirl/Oracle), which occasionally featured Catwoman. However, if Ayers does go ahead with the Gotham City Sirens title and use the original graphic novel series stories, it will give him more of a chance to showcase Quinn.

The script is currently being worked on by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who is known for her work on the Tomb Raider remake and Sherlock Holmes 3. 

Despite some mixed and pretty critical reviews, Suicide Squad was a box office success – so it’s not a surprise that Warner Bros. would look into developing the movie as it’s own franchise, and have some spin-off characters and movies interlinking to it.

The DC Cinematic Universe is starting to grow considerably, and with Robbie and Ayer at the helm, fans are in for a wild ride.
