No one expected Injustice 2 Gotham City Sirens, since the upcoming game is a one-on-one fighter with no team mechanics. However, a version of the team was teased in a gameplay trailer for Catwoman, who was already confirmed. It might be a neat reference for fans of the comic book series, or it could lead to something bigger.
Aside from having a comic series, a Gotham City Sirens movie was rumored sometime after the release of Suicide Squad. The team is made up of fairly well known female characters like Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy, showing potential. While the series hasn’t been brought back in DC Rebirth, it could happen if numerous references like these keep happening.
Gotham Needs More Heroes
The trailer of Catwoman shows Harley Quinn convincing Catwoman to help make the Injustice 2 Gotham City Sirens. Catwoman declines the offer and we start to see some of the moves she has in the game. It’s a short reference, but it is worth mentioning since the comic book had a big fan base.
Interestingly, Harley doesn’t mention Poison Ivy as part of the Sirens, which is likely due to her aligning with Grodd. Harley and Ivy are actually kind of a couple in the current batch of comic books, so this is sad. Then again, the characters don’t seem to have formed any type of relationship in this universe, even in the tie-in comics.
If there are plans for Injustice 2 Gotham City Sirens, it looks to be radically different from the comics. Since Batman and Superman are still enemies, the Sirens could be a team that does work for the Dark Knight. Harley is still on Batman’s side in the game and has even formed a pseudo friendship with Black Canary in the tie-in comics.
A version of the Sirens would be an interesting addition to the fighting game, since superhero factions are always cool. Fans of Batman: Arkham Origins will remember that the game had a version of the Suicide Squad teased. This was years before the film was announced, but many fans dug the reference and were hoping something would come of it.
Injustice 2 is slated for a May 16 release on the PS4 and Xbox One, with Darkseid available for as a pre-order bonus. The game has a number of versions to pre-order, including an ultimate edition that will give players 9 DLC fighters. Expect plenty of hype for this comic book fighter.
