    I'd love if it was based on the Paul Dini run

    Or the Gotham Girls web series.

    I'm so happy for this! I really hope this doesn't objectify any of the characters.

    This should be fun. :)  Looking forward to the DCEU's take on Catwoman and Poison Ivy.

    Um, okay.

    Will be interested to see who they choose to be Selina and Pamela...

    Cool, but since this is the movie universe, so they might put some more members of Batman's female rouges.

    A film full of female characters, who wear skin-tight outfits in the comics? No, none will be objectified.

    Yeah. WB might tone it down a little bit, but there's no way they aren't planning on the sex-appeal of ladies in skin-tight costumes.

    Just look at the Sirens art by Guillem March -- it's pretty clear what this movie will be.

    Yeah, especially not with a title like "Gotham City Sirens". I mean, who could imagine Sirens being sexualized?



    But seriously, I don't really know what to think of this film. DC's females are so heavily sexualized and by that title, you know this film won't change that. Seeing them as the main characters is going to be weird. This isn't exactly unheard of but I tend to view these types of films as B-grade films, not something you'd want to see in a cinematic universe. Then again, Suicide Squad was very B-grade, generic action film feeling, so I shouldn't be that surprised they're going this route.

    Wonder if Batgirl will be in it. Don't think they've said her status in the DCCU yet. Seems the wheelchair-bound Oracle has been forgotten in recent years.

    I really should have thought about the title before I said that. Granted, it is still a hope of mine. Based off of some research of these stories, this will probably be very sexualized.

    I really wish that these stereotypes weren't as present in DC Comics. But they are.

    Like soundwaverulls said, this will probably end up being a B-grade film. I'm still happy for this film, but I have my concerns after thinking more about it.

    I'm onboard for this. Might mean an actually decent live action interpretation of Poison Ivy. And of course it also means more Harley Quinn!

    Sounds good to me. I just hope they're careful with their casting for Catwoman. She should both work for her role in this and have good chemistry with Affleck for parts in future Batman films. I really want to see them do the Bruce and Selina relationship justice on the big screen some day. I think Charlize Theron would be a good pick.

    I wonder if this may draw influence from the Gotham Girls show.

    I'm so hesitant about this. Having Ayer back on board in the director's chair after the trainwreck that was Suicide Squad, I already have a bad taste in my mouth.

    And the castings are a big part that's offputting me. Would love to see Eva Mendes as Selina and perhaps a black woman as Ivy.

    I really hope they can pull this off but given previous DCEU material, I'm rightfully nervous. I don't want them to screw up my favorite character of all time.

    Agreed. Yeah, they're seductive, sexual characters in a sense but you don't need overt sexualization and objectification, especially when it's all just male gazing bullshit anyway.

    But the new WB versions for this movie could be the most sexualized versions yet.

    Think about it -- between Harley, Catwoman, and Ivy -- Harley is usually the least sexualized... but WB just put her in hot-pants and had her bend over for the camera a few times. It's Ivy that is all about seduction and sex-appeal, as part of the character, and Selina uses her feminine charms on Batman, or some random museum guard, from time to time... I expect WB to amp all that up.

    So, they have Ayer back... this is probably not going to turn out very well. I would like to see a decent live action film depiction of characters like Poison Ivy and Batgirl (I would really like to see Barbara Gordon), but they will probably not happen with Ayer at the helm. The guy did not make a good first impression with Suicide Squad. I did not appreciate Harley's outfit. And from what I hear, the Sirens comic leans really heavily on cheesecake to get by, so if one is not looking for that kind of thing, this movie is not for them. I myself am not looking for that kind of thing.
