Gotham City Sirens: Reasons Why It Can Trump Suicide Squad

Listen up, fan boys! Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn in Gotham City Sirens. As the part-time girlfriend of The Joker, Quinn is DC’s most popular female character.

Sirens was a recent comic series from DC that focused on their popular villainesses from the Batman story such as Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. Gotham City Sirens is not the sequel to Suicide Squad since that one is still under development.

Gotham City Sirens will be better than Suicide Squad?

Suicide Squad was a hit on its own. It was a tough production and the studio had to reshoot a lot of the scenes but in the end, it grossed $745.6 million globally. Many believe that Gotham City Sirens will be bigger and better than Suicide Squad because of Robbie’s involvement.

It is the 13th highest-grossing superhero release of all time domestically. Internationally, it surpassed the box-office success of Deadpool, which Suicide Squad has always been compared to.

The production is still developing a sequel to Suicide Squad but for now, we can all be content with Gotham City Sirens. After all, as a character, Harley Quinn definitely kicks ass. Add to that the possibility of seeing other Batman villainesses, then you’ve got yourself a movie curiously better than the film it was based on.

Harley Quinn’s character saved Suicide Squad?

Suicide Squad may be an acclaimed film, gross-wise, but it has disappointed a lot of critics in terms of storytelling. The main saving grace, however, was Robbie’s character, Quinn.

Her characterization of the psychopathic Quinn received rave reviews. Her costume was one of the most popular during the past Halloween season. It speaks of how she managed to make Quinn a household name once again.

Gotham City Sirens will be directed and produced by David Ayer, the same one behind the camera for the Suicide Squad. Robbie will be executive producing. Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who penned Tomb Raider and Sherlock Holmes 3, will be writing the screenplay.

Warner Bros. has yet to announce plans on when Gotham City Sirens will be released. It is believed that the production is on the fast track.
