    I think the one actress I could see playing Ivy is Chloe Moretz. If they play this film as an origin for her. She would make a great young pixie version.

    I never thought of that, another great choice.

    Is anyone up for them debuting Nightwing in this? If they cast him now, he could potentially end up in both.

    I would assume the Batman solo is more likely, though depending on which gets released first...

    Honestly, the one thing I'm concerned about is if this is going for a hard "R". Also, if Ayer even wants that.

    Really? I'm concerned he'll botch it like SS1. And too much input from the studio.

    No, see if he is allowed a hard "R" amd creative control, I'm not worried. It's the Studio who messed up mostly. BTW, I still haven't seen Suicide Squad.

    Mmm, maybe. I don't see it as a guarantee of success.

    ... I can't say if that's a good or bad thing. lol.

    That's true. I think without the Snyder's involved, things might be different. Yes, when I mention I have not seen it, I have heard things like "Good for you".

    I just hope Ayer doesn't go overboard as far as sexualizing the leads :sweat:.

    I mean, they're very sexual and attractive women, so I don't expect to see that downplayed, but I hope it's not over-emphasized too much over their personalities and characterizations :ack:.

    Well the rumors are that this film isn't going to be called GCS, but "Birds of Prey". Also, things like they wanted an older Catwoman to match Affleck and that Green Arrow might appear. If any of it were true, we'll just have to wait and see.

    Yeah, in light of Ayer's comments and the nature of those rumors, I'm definitely taking it with a grain of salt o_O.

    Well, I think "Birds of Prey" is a better name marketing-wise. However, "Gotham City Sirens" alludes to it not being exactly about that team. Hence the reason Harley stood front and center in the first place. Also, notice we all of a sudden got that Harley vs Joker film rumor earlier this month.

    All this is my reasoning why I am doubtful WB is going forward with GCS, at least as we originally heard it. BoP could go forward with Batgirl, Black Canary, and Huntress. However, Gotham City Sirens could go forward with maybe that trio or just two of them or swap Batgirl & Canary for Batgirl & Catwoman versus Harley & Poison Ivy. Or the trio versus Harley, Ivy, and Catwoman.

    Until I see confirmation otherwise, I am treating Gotham City Sirens and a possible Birds of Prey movie as two, separate projects. A change of title from GCS to BoP would suggest a complete reconceptualization to emphasize the heroines of the DCEU over the villainesses.

    The only thing I've got against her is that she's a lot younger then Affleck, so it would be weird to see them paired up together, though depending on whether Affleck continues on as Batman or not...

    At this point, we still don't know about Affleck. Selina may not meet up with him in film for another 5 years.
