Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will officially join a new squad in her next big screen appearance. Suicide Squad‘s breakout star will team up with Catwoman and Poison Ivy to form Gotham City Sirens. But, will her “pudding,” The Joker (Jared Leto) approve?

Harley and Gotham City Sirens

Gotham City Sirens is a comic book series that saw Catwoman, following a traumatic encounter with another villain, round up Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn to protect themselves in Gotham City. David Ayer, who also helmed Suicide Squad, signed up to direct the film.

While DC has not confirmed if any male character will appear, Ben Affleck’s Batman might make a brief cameo. As for the Joker, there is a part waiting for him in the upcoming movie.

Harley, Poison Ivy and the Joker

Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy are still not a couple in Gotham City Sirens, but the comics hint that their friendship is not exactly platonic. Catwoman found them living together in the Riddler’s home at the beginning of the comic book series. It also implied that Ivy is the one thing standing between Harley Quinn and relapsing back into an abusive relationship with the Joker.

However, he did return to her life. Prompted by her memories of the Joker’s abuse, Harley Quinn sets off to kill the Joker.

However, her emotions took the best of her and, instead, she attempted to break him out of Arkham Asylum. This led to a showdown between Harley Quinn, the Joker, and Poison Ivy. Despite Ivy’s ultimatum, Harley chose to side with the Joker.

Will Jared Leto Do the Harley Quinn Movie?

The question now, however, is will Jared Leto go method once again for a minor part in a movie? The actor seemed upset that majority of his scenes were cut from Suicide Squad. However, his appearance in the Harley Quinn Movie will help present the Joker not as a romantic lead, but a creepy and abusive boyfriend.
