David Ayer has taken to Twitter to confirm that Harley Quinn will be joined by Catwoman and Poison Ivy in ‘Gotham City Sirens’.

Shortly after it was reported yesterday that Ayer and Margot Robbie would be working in tandem once again on a DC project, after previously collaborating on ‘Suicide Squad’, the director took to Twitter to confirm the speculation, as he posted,

Since Poison Ivy and Catwoman were both a mainstay of Paul Dini’s ‘Gotham City Sirens’’ comic book series it’s hardly surprising that they’re involved in the cinematic adaptation.

But all The Hollywood Reporter’s original exclusive revealed was that ‘Gotham City Sirens’ would “showcase the top female villains from the DC stable,” while at the same time revealing that it will be written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who is penning the ‘Tomb Raider’ reboot and ‘Sherlock Holmes 3.’

David Ayer’s confirmation that Catwoman and Poison Ivy are involved instantly nips in the bud any potential speculation that Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe might be moving away from the source material. Instead it gets people chatting about potential stars for the film, with Jessica Chastain or Emma Stone as Poison Ivy and Emily Blunt as Catwoman likely to be touted.

While we’re still quite a bit away from ‘Gotham City Sirens’, as there’s no casting, production or release news, Warner Bros. are reportedly set to “fast track” the film, something they’re also doing the same with ‘Suicide Squad 2’, Deadshot’s solo outing, and ‘The Batman’, too.

Even though ‘Suicide Squad’ disappointed critics the blockbuster still made $746 million across the world. Margot Robbie was widely cited as one of the best aspects of the film, which is why Warner Bros. have decided to double down on her popularity, and she’s even got an executive producer credit on ‘Gotham City Sirens’ to boot, too.
