Suicide Squad is a curious film. It was by far one of the most ambitious titles in the DCEU when it released, as it focused on established villains without showing them (more-or-less) fighting the heroes that they are known to clash with. Despite it doing well financially, critics and fan noted a very uneven film, and the limited user of The Joker was harped on by many. The director of the film, David Ayer, has now been attached to a spinoff film featuring Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. Aka The Gotham City Sirens.
At San Diego Comic Con, Ayer talked to IGN about what drew him to the film, and it’s apparently a very personal reason.
“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.” He added, “I have daughters, and I want to create something that might be able to help them get along in the world a little bit.”
Ayer was tight-lipped about everything else, and when it came to Harley Quinn’s outfit in the upcoming film, Ayer noted “Let’s put a pin in that. Maybe next Comic-Con. But did say… “Everybody evolves.”
