2016 was a good year for DC and Warner Bros., as the release of Suicide Squad and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice earned big numbers at the box office. The latter movie's success, comparable to Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy in terms of a sleeper hit, has led to not only a sequel being given the greenlight, but a spinoff for star Margot Robbie that will also be directed by Suicide Squad's David Ayer.
The film, titled Gotham City Sirens, looks to be getting a quick push into production. It'll see Robbie return as Harley Quinn and is rumored to pair her with Poison Ivy and Catwoman to round out DC's second team of do-gooder villains. The movie looks to follow both of DC's 2016 releases by introducing audiences to a number of new characters in one ensemble film. Given the success of Suicide Squad, it's really no surprise DC and Warner Bros. would want to try to repeat the villain-centric formula and provide Robbie's Harley with a more of the spotlight. Though somewhat newer to the comics universe, Harley has grown to be one of DC's most popular characters.
As reported by Batman News, fans now have a new photo of Robbie in costume taken by Clay Enos, the set photographer for Suicide Squad. The image was released earlier today by Enos on his Vero account, a social media platform Zack Snyder recently used to release his Batman V Superman/Rogue One mashup trailer.
Sadly, the image doesn't offer fans anything they haven't previously seen. In fact, the photo is almost identical to the one of Robbie used for the Harley Quinn solo poster that was released as part of Suicide Squad's marketing push. It's more than likely that the photo was taken by Enos during the same shoot that led to many of the images of Robbie used to promote the film ahead of its release. The photo also follows one of Robbie on set as Harley that Enos put on his Instagram a few days before Christmas.
There's a good chance we'll get a lot more shots from Enos as the weeks go by. DC and Warners are riding high from the success of the movie still and the announcement of Gotham City Sirens has gained even more buzz on social media. Hopefully, some casting announcements on who will be playing the DCEU's Catwoman and Poison Ivy will arrive soon. There have been plenty of rumors about both, and seen some fan art depicting various actors in each role.
