david ayer still involved with gotham city sirens

Spurred on by the success of Wonder Woman, the DC Extended Universe is in the midst of a full-blown creative pivot. But David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, like Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is a remnant of the earlier era, in which dark and gritty reigned supreme.

Now Ayer, who has been attached to direct the upcoming Harley Quinn-centric film Gotham City Sirens, is facing rumors that he might fall the way of DC’s grimdark tone. But the director has recently stepped forward to say that those rumors aren’t true.

Suicide Squad 2 group

Superhero movie fans are riding a Wonder Woman high right now, but it’s slightly difficult to sustain that excitement when we stop and think about what’s coming next from the DC Extended Universe.

Also in the works: Suicide Squad 2, which star Joel Kinnaman, who plays Squad leader Rick Flag, says may begin filming sometime in 2018.

justice league reshoots rumor

Reshoots are a part of the movie-making business. And it can seem overzealous to simply report on the fact that reshoots are happening — trust me, I’m as tired of these kind of stories as you are, especially when they act like this is something out of the ordinary. In many cases, they’re a good thing and help make a good movie great. But when reports say that Justice League has essentially been “remade…twice” after “significant” reshoots, and is looking at even more reshoots down the barrel, that’s seems — well — significant.
