It Appears SUICIDE SQUAD Director David Ayer Is No Longer Involved With GOTHAM CITY SIRENS

There was no mention of Gotham City Sirens at Comic-Con this past weekend and this could be why! According to a new report, Suicide Squad director David Ayer's involvement is now in doubt...

When Warner Bros. announced their upcoming slate of DC Comics adaptations at Comic-Con last Saturday, one movie notable by its absence was Gotham City Sirens. With a cast which is set to be led by Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, the female-led spinoff found a director in Suicide Squad helmer David Ayer early on but despite some Poison Ivy rumours, we've heard very little about the project. 

Well, we may now have an answer as to why that is. According to Mashable, Ayer "won't ultimately be part of [Warner Bros.'] plans" when it comes to the movie, something which puts its future in doubt. Reps for the filmmaker deny he's off the project and say that it's both in
development and that a script is being worked on but if that is the case, why wasn't it announced alongside those other movies?

Well, comments from Ayer during a Comic-Con panel for his Netflix movie Bright may shed some light on that. "I don't think people
realize the situation filmmakers face," he said. "[Bright] isn't like, some bullshit standard issue studio PG-13 movie. I was able to do some real shit here." Ayer has only directed one PG-13 movie in his career and that's the critically panned Suicide Squad from last year.

It's not looking good for Gotham City Sirens then, though we could possibly get an Ayer-less version down the line. Before then, it's likely Harley Quinn will return in Suicide Squad 2 or that rumoured movie revolving around her and The Joker. What do you guys think? Let us know in the usual place.
