Sorry Harley Quinn. You don't get to fly solo just yet.
David Ayer gets to take another crack at the DC universe, this time producing Gotham City Sirens, coined after the comic book series written by Paul Dini.

According to The Los Angeles Times, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn will be featured, and judging by the title, it's bound to be sexy.
Margot Robbie, who plays Quinn, is the executive producer on the project, which makes us wonder if there will be the female empowerment angle she was hoping to achieve in this film. Calling the role one of the more unpleasant roles she's ever done (for many reasons), she notes to The Washington Post that she "just didn’t understand how she could be such a badass and then fall to pieces over some guy. I found that really frustrating." Well, at least Robbie noticed Harley's co-dependent, and slightly borderline abusive relationship with The Joker.

Robbie also hasn't been silent about some of her other qualms of the role, like her insecurity "eating burgers at lunchtime" and then being "hosed down and soaking wet in a white T-shirt" as she notes to The New York Times, but judging by how amped up sexually the comics are when it comes to Catwoman, let alone Poison Ivy, there's bound to be eye candy. Blogs like Birth Movies Death note that the comics lean toward an LGBTQ stance, and they wonder if Ayer will follow suit.
The Hollywood Reporter does not note at this time when the film is slated to appear, but hopefully it ranks better in the listing than it's predecessor, Suicide Squad.
