WB Developing Harley Quinn Movie Featuring More Female DC Characters

SuperHeroHype

May 16, 2016

Ahead of the release of Suicide Squad later this summer, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Warner Bros. is now developing Harley Quinn movie starring Margot Robbie as the villain.

It’s worth noting, however, that the spin-off project is not being eyed as a “solo” Harley Quinn movie, but instead a film that would feature a number of female DC characters, with the likes of Batgirl and the Birds of Prey reportedly also in the mix for the film. The studio is staying tight lipped about the project and not confirming which characters will appear in the film or who is even writing, though it is reportedly a female screenwriter.

The outlet notes that Robbie herself was the springboard for the project, having fallen for the pantheon of DC’s female characters in her extensive research for the role of Harley Quinn. Robbie then brought on the writer to the project and it was promptly picked up by the studio for development.

Robbie will make her debut as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad on August 5, marking the feature film debut of the character. Alongside Robbie for the film will also be Karen Fukuhara as Katana, a member of the Birds of Prey in the DC source material. The Birds of Prey are a mostly female superhero team whose ranks has included Oracle/Batgirl, Black Canary, Huntress, Catwoman, Hawkgirl, Power Girl, Poison Ivy, Vixen, and many more.

David Ayer and Margot Robbie Reteam for Gotham City Sirens Movie!

SuperHeroHype

Dec 13, 2016

There’s some exciting news regarding the future of DC Comics on the big screen as The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Suicide Squad‘s David Ayer will helm a Gotham City Sirens movie with Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn front and center. As previously reported, plans for the film will bring in female DC Comics characters. If the comic book title of the same name is any indication, we’re likely to see new big screen versions of Catwoman and Poison Ivy.

The trade report also indicates that plans for a Suicide Squad sequel are still underway as is a spinoff film centered on Will Smith’s Deadshot.

The Gotham City Sirens movie will be scripted by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Her recent work include the upcoming Tomb Raider (starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft) and Sherlock Holmes 3 (set to feature the return of Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law). Although no release date has been set, the project is said to be on the fast track at Warner Bros.

The next DCU film to hit theaters is Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman. It arrives June 2, 2017, followed by Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie on November 17. Other confirmed release dates include James Wan’s Aquaman on October 5, 2018 and a Ben Affleck directed Batman film (tentatively titled The Batman) in 2019.

Ayer’s Suicide Squad, released this past August, has grossed more than $745 million worldwide.

Margot Robbie will executive produce the Gotham City Sirens movie alongside Ayer. Jon Berg and Geoff Johns, meanwhile, are producing.

Sirens? The producers are idiots. Remember how much backlash Harley Quinn got for her gross outfit in Suicide Squad? The word Sirens will be worth ten times that, and give feminists conniptions. What is acceptable for male middle-aged comic book fandom, will not be acceptable for society at large. I'm not saying I'm personally offended by the title. But the movie is giving itself grief for no reason because the producers are so clueless about sexism in society. This is written by a woman? And she signed off on that title? Superhero producers are so worthless.

The title come from the webtoon (and later comic book) that starred Harley, Ivy, Catwoman and Batgirl, it wasn't just pulled from a hat for the movie title.

I don't think the title of this film will be a problem. I don't understand though why the producers didn't learn anything from Suicide Squad. I do agree with a lot of people about Harley's outfit. That is a far cry from her Batman: the animated series days!

She's had a lot skimpier outfits in the comics over the years. A girl I work with got a tattoo of Harley on her calf earlier in the year, the image has her clutching her 46" double-Fs to keep them in the bustier...
