This week, news broke of Warner Brothers greenlighting a Margot Robbie/Harley Quinn-led film titled Gotham City Sirens. While the casual fan may not know what Gotham City Sirens (GCS) is, it’s actually quite awesome. Initially written by Paul Dini (who, along with animator Bruce Timm, first created Harley Quinn) and with artwork by Guillem March, Gotham City Sirens followed the exploits of Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman as the three lived together and looked out for one another in Gotham City during the turbulent time after Bruce Wayne’s “death.” It’s essentially three of the hottest, most badass chicks in the DC Universe all living together, being hot, and kicking ass. Win, win, win, win, win. As DJ Khaled would say, more wins, more life.
While the role of Harley Quinn is already spectacularly filled by Margot Robbie, Catwoman and Poison Ivy have yet to be cast. And according to a report from Bleeding Cool, Megan Fox could be circling in on the role. Which would be a HUGE mistake for DC.
Don’t get me wrong, Megan Fox is as fine as they come, and I’d watch the shit out of her wearing a leaf for two hours, but Warner Brothers needs to do MUCH, MUCH better than this if this movie is going to be successful. Everyone knows Megan Fox still finds work as an actress because she gets by strictly on looks. Get someone who can actually act, and who actually as red hair, like Jessica Chastain. Then cast Emily Blunt as Catwoman and you’re really cooking. Honestly, Warner Brothers, if you’re reading this, just hire me to write your next Batman movie(s). I’ve got a gang of killer ideas.
Gotham City Sirens will be directed by Suicide Squad director David Ayers. Robbie will both star and produce the film.
