Well, well, well… has David Ayer, writer and director of Suicide Squad and now director of the upcoming Gotham City Sirens, just teased a major Gotham City villain?
Ayer posted an image of Black Mask (below) on his Twitter last night and now everyone is wondering if he’s possibly saying that Black Mask will be facing off against the Sirens – Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn – in his movie.
In the comics Roman Sionis AKA Black Mask is a gangster who runs Gotham’s underworld and he would be a superb choice for any DC movie. Interestingly Sionis owns an underground fight club in the comics and some have speculated that it’s the club Bruce Wayne was at in Batman V Superman when he cloned Anatoli Knyazev’s phone. Now, that would be a cool connection.
Obviously there’s nothing concrete here… but we think it might have a reason more than ‘just because’.
