Currently, there is lots of unknowns regarding the Gotham City Sirens movie. While we know the team's main members, #HarleyQuinn, Poison Ivy and Catwoman will appear, everything else related to its plot is up in the air. Fans are relying on the DCEU more than ever, hoping not to be let down once more.
Believe it or not, there are tons of elements that could make or break this film. Below, I have offered possible events that could help Gotham City Sirens become triumphant, and even pave the way for comic book movies to come.

Hush As The Main Villain
If Hush didn't exist, the Gotham City Sirens might have never formed. He is often regarded as one of #Batman's most personal villains. In the Heart of Hush story arc, he ripped out Catwoman's heart, hoping to crush his close childhood friend, Bruce Wayne. She later regained it, but her strength wasn't the same. After Poison Ivy came to her rescue in Gotham City Sirens #1, Selina's idea of forming a team came to fruition. Hush also had a brief appearance in Gotham City Sirens #2 - 4, in which he disguised himself as Bruce Wayne in an attempt to kidnap Harley.
Compared to the rest of Batman's rogues, Hush is extremely underrated. It is common for comic book films to include a hero's primary villain, rather than a lesser known antagonist who can still leave a powerful impression. Bringing this villain to the #DCEU could be refreshing, and he certainly has an impact on the Sirens' existence.
Harley's Rocket Launch
In Batman: Harley Quinn #1, Harley wakes up to find a note that the Joker left her, instructing her to meet him at an amusement park's rocket ride. Though he is nowhere to be found, Harley steps into the rocket realizing this was all a trick.
This event shows the true nature of their relationship. When the Joker notices his feelings for her, he attempts to kill her. Including this in Gotham City Sirens could help Harley grasp that she deserves better and needs to finally break away from him. It is also worth mentioning that Harley's rocket landed in Robinson Park, where #PoisonIvy resided.
Harley meets Poison Ivy in the Batman: The Animated Series:
She took Harley in and brought her back to health, all while giving her the support and self-esteem that she needed. Don't we want to see this character become successful, as opposed to being portrayed as a victim?
The Romance Of Harley And Ivy
Not only is Ivy an excellent source of support, her and Harley have a deep romantic connection. In contrast to the Joker's sadistic ways, Ivy shows Harley genuine love and care. The two would undoubtedly risk their lives for each other in any circumstance. In order to show off Harley's true strength, she needs to be depicted in a healthy environment. Her and Ivy's relationship could also give mainstream media the push that it needs to display positive LGBT representation.
Keep The Sirens Together
In the last issue of Gotham City Sirens, the team decided to go their separate ways. I personally believe that including this would damage the future film. Harley, Ivy and Catwoman are strong and empowering characters who display even greater strength together. As beloved icons, the trio working together, as well as the bond they share, is essential to the DCEU.
We should expect for a release date, casting details and more to be officially revealed in early 2017.
