Margot Robbie Is Making A ‘Gotham City Sirens’ Movie
So first things first, I finally watched Suicide Squad last night, and it surprisingly wasn’t that bad. In fairness, I was expecting a dour shitshow like Batman V Superman, and instead got a brainless, but fun comic book movie where DC Comic characters didn’t act like they were at a funeral. Don’t get me wrong, Jared Leto’s Joker was god-fucking-awful – I’m talking Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor bad. – but Margot Robbie was goddamn great as Harley Quinn. And amazingly DC/Warner Bros. recognized when something worked because now she’s making a Gotham City Sirens movie that they’ll probably still edit to shit and back in a panic. THR reports:
Ayer will direct and produce the project with Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn, the part-time girlfriend of the Joker who is currently DC’s most popular female character. Robbie also is executive producing.
Sirens was a recent comic series from DC that focused on the popular villainesses from Batman’s rogue gallery. Among them were Quinn; Catwoman, Batman’s sometime love interest; and Poison Ivy, who uses plants and their toxins to get what she wants.
Geneva Robertson-Dworet, a top female writer in the action sphere who also has penned scripts for the Tomb Raider remake and Warners’ own Sherlock Holmes 3, is writing the screenplay.
Of course, if you have sex on the regular, you’re probably wondering what any of this means, so let me try and distill it down to this blog’s preferred reading level: Boobs. It’s going to have boobs in it. Boobs that look like these.

And possibly even butts. You may see their butts do stuff. But if anyone asks, you’re thrilled to finally see “empowered” female characters take the lead in a superhero movie. Play it cool. (Read: No rape threats, and yes, I have to spell that out. I’ve been on Twitter before.)
