It seems to be like Netflix has determined to embrace the franchise world, as a sequel to David Ayer’s Bright has now officially been announced. This improvement will doubtless please most of the followers who loved the gritty tackle fairy story Los Angeles, however it additionally raises some distinct questions on the way forward for David Ayer’s work within the DC Prolonged Universe. With that in thoughts, let’s dive and talk about how Shiny 2 may have an effect on Gotham Metropolis Sirens.
For starters, it is value mentioning that CinemaBlend not too long ago chatted with David Ayer in regards to the standing of Gotham Metropolis Sirens through the Shiny press tour. Once we requested about the way forward for the venture, Ayer made positive to notice that he was nonetheless within the strategy of workshopping it at Warner Bros. Whereas it is solely attainable that Ayer wasn’t wholly forthright about whether or not or not he intends to stroll away from the movie, if he’s certainly nonetheless directing Gotham Metropolis Sirens, then because of this we may very well be taking a look at a delay whereas he works on Shiny 2.
Considering large image, that may not be the worst factor on this planet for the DCEU. As of proper now, Margot Robbie has nearly too many initiatives to select from for her position as Harley Quinn, so pushing Gotham Metropolis Sirens and David Ayer again by a few years may afford her the chance to work on Suicide Squad 2, the Joker/Harley spinoff movie or the Harley Quinn solo movie — all of that are reportedly in varied levels of improvement. In spite of everything, the I, Tonya star can’t be in two locations without delay.
Past that, pushing Gotham Metropolis Sirens may additionally assist make room for Joss Whedon’s Batgirl movie to ascertain Barbara Gordon within the DCEU, which might go a good distance in direction of serving to arrange the Birds of Prey team to look alongside the Sirens. David Ayer can nonetheless work on Sirens, however letting him take a while to make Shiny 2 may clear a path for different initiatives to get produced first.
One other attainable plan of action for Warner Bros. and the DCEU could be to simply proceed the event of Gotham Metropolis Sirens with out David Ayer. If the movie nonetheless strikes ahead, Ayer may go on to work with Netflix on Shiny 2 whereas the DCEU finds a brand new director to step in and tackle the female-centric supervillain film. DC has seldom shied away from swapping out administrators for initiatives (look no additional than the issues that have plagued The Flash’s solo movie for proof of that truth), so bringing somebody in to take the baton from David Ayer does not appear solely unrealistic.
