Warner Bros. is reportedly planning a Birds of Prey and Gotham City Sirens crossover.
Earlier this week, Warner Bros. unveiled the first teaser for Birds of Prey and it appears the studio is already planning to bring the team of DC heroines back to the big screen. In a report on potential villains for Matt Reeves’ The Batman, THR noted the studio is rumored to be planning a film trilogy that includes Gotham City Sirens and a crossover movie that will unite both groups:
And with Birds of Prey rumored to lead to a trilogy comprised of Gotham City Sirens and Birds vs. Sirens features, Catwoman certainly won’t be kept off screen for long.
In the comics, the Gotham City Sirens consists of female DC villains Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. Warner Bros. has reportedly been working on a Gotham City Sirens movie for several years and Suicide Squad director David Ayer was once attached to the project.
Full details on the Birds of Prey plot are currently unknown, though the film is said to center on Huntress, Black Canary, and Harley Quinn joining forces to protect Cassandra Cain when she comes into the possession of a diamond belonging to a criminal kingpin known as Black Mask.
Directed by Cathy Yan from a script penned by Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Ewan, McGregor as Black Mask, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Ali Wong, Robert Catrini, and Michael Masini have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
Birds of Prey will be released in theaters on February 7, 2020.

2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl.

Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
