While this summer’s Suicide Squad had plenty of lovers and haters – we loved it, for the record – one thing that had everyone talking was Margot Robbie as Harleen Quinzel AK Harley Quinn.

And rightfully so… she nailed it. And almost right after there were the rumours that DC/Warners were set for a Harley spinoff and now we know what it is!

Gotham City Sirens… yes, please! And we know that Suicide Squad director David Ayer is coming back to helm it, reports THR.

The Sirens comic features the villainous ladies of Gotham including Quinn, Catwoman and Poison Ivy and it’s reasonable to expect to see them all in here too and we wouldn’t rule out the likes of Batgirl and Huntress too.

This is very exciting news and another step toward making the DC Movie universe a vast one, indeed.

The script will be penned by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who also wrote the Alicia Vikander’s new Tomb Raider and the upcoming  Sherlock Holmes 3.

As expected, Geoff Johns and Jon Berg, will be overseeing the movie from a story point.

But wait, there’s more… word on the Nerdvine is that Warners are already working on a Suicide Squad sequel and a Deadshot standalone movie.

We had heard that Deadshot might be the villain in the Batman standalone movie – after all, the last time we saw him he was determined to get revenge on Batman for putting him in prison, leaving his daughter with his ex-wife – but now we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw Affleck’s Batman in the Deadshot movie… after all, it looks like Warners love having characters life Batman and Flash walking around the tapestry of its movies.

So Sirens, Deadshot and Suicide Squad all in the works? That’ll do for us.

What say you all?

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
