One in every of 4 Harley Quinn DCEU movies Warner Bros. put in growth after Suicide Squad, Gotham Metropolis Sirens would see Robbie’s Harley Quinn workforce up together with her fellow antiheroines Catwoman and Poison Ivy to struggle unhealthy guys on the streets of Gotham. Suicide Squad helmsman David Ayer stays loosely connected to direct the spinoff, with Geneva Dworet-Robertson (Tomb Raider, Captain Marvel) writing the script.

Despite his expertise making Suicide Squad (which went by heavy studio-mandated reshoots), Ayer says he is pleased with his earlier work on the DCEU and appears to be considering returning to the franchise. He is presently engaged on a re-imagining of The Soiled Dozen for WB, so he clearly does not maintain any grudges in opposition to the studio, both. Robbie, for her half, is equally dedicated to taking part in Harley Quinn once more after Birds of Prey, be that within the type of Gotham Metropolis Sirens or not.
