A recent report began suggesting that Director David Ayer may not direct Warner Bros. Gotham City Sirens. The exclusive details published by Mashable received a lot of outcry from fans as the director’s rep denied these claims stating he was in the process of finishing the script.
Unfortunately, the news has only gone on to exaggerate as other media outlets also began sharing their opinion based on the report which suggested that the Ayer could, in fact, take the exit. Furthermore, the news gained more traction as few also began stating that this could also be connected to the film not being green-lit during the studio’s announcements at SDCC.
Finally, Ayer has decided to address these claims himself and put an end to the rumors. Moments ago, the director shared a cryptic photo on Twitter which has assured fans that he is still on the project.
Ayer shared a photo of Harley Quinn from the comics. For those unaware, Harley Quinn played by Margot Robbie has been confirmed to play a role in Gotham City Sirens. Moreover, the actress is also the executive producer of the film.
It looks like the photo was enough to put a rest to the negative claims. It is quite unfortunate that these reports push actors, executives and directors to respond as it seems to be the only way to put off the flames before it causes any further damage.
Warner Bros. Group president and chief content officer Toby Emmerich also responded to The Mashable’s report which also stated that the Snyder’s are no longer a part of the decision making process. Here’s the statement.
“The Snyders remain an important part of the Warner Bros. family and are actively involved in several upcoming DC pictures, including their continued creative input on Justice League. We are excited about our partnership and look forward to our continued collaboration.”
Earlier, Ayer also teasingly confirmed that Catwoman, Poison Ivy and DC villain Black Mask are all part of the film in one of his cryptic tweets. Since then, fans have been expecting an announcement on who could play the female lead characters. Recently, actress Aubrey Plaza also revealed her interest to play as Catwoman.
