After the huge box office success of Suicide Squad, now spin-off movies for the characters Harley Quinn and Deadshot are reportedly in the works.
Suicide Squad grossed a massive $745million at the box office, and it looks like we could be expecting a lot more DC Universe.
Back in September, it was reported that Margot Robbie would be producing her own Harley Quinn spin-off movie. Now, Variety reports that director David Ayer will be at the helm and that it will be called Gotham City Sirens – taking its name from a comic series that featured Quinn teaming with fellow female Batman villains Poison Ivy and Catwoman. It is not yet known whether or not the other characters will feature in the plot, but the spin-off is expected to hit cinemas before the Suicide Squad sequel.
