Is The ‘Gotham City Sirens’ Movie Closer to filming Than First Thought?

Thanks to the success of Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn is now a household name, and with the continual success of Wonder Woman is it in any way a shock that we now have a batch of female-led comic book movies in the works?

A short while ago it was announced that David Ayer would not be returning to direct the Suicide Squad sequel, but would instead be teaming up once again with Margot Robbie who would be returning to the role of the Clown Princess of Crime, joined by fellow femme fatales Poison Ivy and Catwoman in Gotham City Sirens!

A little time has passed with not much in the way of news regarding the project and with the more recently announced Batgirl movie, being helmed by non-other than Joss Whedon (which is big news of its own), many have been, and most likely still are, a little concerned that Sirens may have been a little over shadowed.

With whispers of a potential 2018 release, which we must take with a pinch of salt as this is by no means concrete, we have very little to be excited about…. or do we?

We Got This Covered have recently discovered what could possibly be something very interesting:

“While I was browsing Amazon for 2018 calendars, I came across quite the whopper in what is being listed as “Harley Quinn (Movie) Gotham City Sirens 2018 Wall Calendar.” Coming to us by way of Trends International, the front cover simply reads “Harley Quinn, A 16-Month 2018 Calendar,” and displays Robbie in her Squad threads. So, despite it bearing that title, we can’t help but think this is quite possibly placeholder artwork”

The products synopsis reads:

“Suicide Squad favourite Harley Quinn joins DC Comics’ super villains Catwoman and Poison Ivy in a movie of their own, Gotham City Sirens. Find out more in the movie and in the 2018 Gotham City Sirens Calendar that includes the last four months of 2017. It features spacious grids with room to write in all of your super-villainous exploits printed on paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.”

Could this be confirmation the movie will be hitting theatres in 2018 or is this simply a character calendar?

At this point who knows, but with San Diego Comic-Con only a few weeks away, we can be certain that we’ll get further announcements with regards to all future DCEU movie in the works.

In the meantime, don’t forget to check out Wonder Woman in theatres everywhere now.
