Speaking to IGN at Comic-Con International in San Diego, director David Ayer (Bright) shed some light on why he chose to direct the Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy/Catwoman-led Gotham City Sirens before tackling the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel.
"It's a story about three fantastic women who're trying to find their way in the world, and realize that they have more power together than they do individually," the director explained. "I have daughters, and I want to create something that might be able to help them get along in the world a little bit."
Additionally, the site asked Ayer if Harley Quinn's look will evolve for the film, to which the director responded coyly, "Let's put a pin in that. Maybe next Comic-Con," teasing, "Everybody evolves."
Directed by Suicide Squad‘s David Ayer, Gotham City Sirens is believed to be inspired by the DC Comics title of the same name by Batman: The Animated Series writer Paul Dini and Guillem March, which teamed Harley Quinn with Catwoman and Poison Ivy. No targeted release date has been announced.
