Report: Is David Ayer off the Gotham City Sirens movie? UPDATED: Ayer responds brilliantly

July 26th, 2017 by Marc Comments

While DC put out an impressive list of upcoming movies at SDCC last weekend, including Flashpoint, Wonder Woman 2, The Batman, Batgirl and Suicide Squad 2, one movie that we’ve know was in the works was noticeably absent: Gotham City Sirens.

And a few of us have been wondering why this would ben given that Suicide Squad director David was writing it and getting ready to bring Poison Ivy, Catwoman and Harley Quinn together on the big screen.

Now it seems that according to sources (we know): “Ayer won’t ultimately be part of their plans. Ayer’s rep flatly denied that he’s off the project, saying it’s still in development and that the script is not yet complete.”

Part of this was fuelled by the fact that, while promoting his Netflix movie at SDCC, Bright (trailer here), Ayer told the crowd: “[Bright] isn’t like, some bullshit standard issue studio PG-13 movie. I was able to do some real s#@t here.”

The consensus being that Ayer, whose only PG-13 movie has been Suicide Squad, had been having a dig at Warners’ involvement in his movie.

That all said…

Also as SDCC, Ayer was asked why he decided he wanted to make Sirens (full story here)  and he replied: “I have daughters, and I want to create something that might be able to help them get along in the world a little bit.”

That, to us, doesn’t sound like someone who hasn’t passion for a project… but who knows?

Would you like to see Ayer gone? Or maybe given more freedom? Let us know.


We think Ayer just, we think, cleared up the whole affair with one simple Tweet:

Yeah, we reckon he’s still on board…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. 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….
