In an interview with Nerdist, Margot Robbie discussed why she decided to prioritize Birds of Prey instead of Gotham City Sirens after her Harley Quinn character ended up being the breakout star of Suicide Squad.

“During Suicide Squad–when we would go to Comic-Con and such–I started to realize there was just such a huge fan base for Harley. Whilst I was researching the character I started to read Birds Of Prey and first I fell in love with Huntress, and I started looking into all of that. I was like, ‘Wow, there’s so many cool female DC characters and no one knows anything about any of them!’ So what if we had a platform for fans to get to know and fall in love with some of these other amazing women? Focusing on the Gotham City Sirens, there were only three of us and we were all well known, whereas with Birds Of Prey you can pick any grouping for that, and I thought that might be the perfect platform to introduce some female characters who might really have some legs in the DC Universe.”

The other two female characters in Gotham City Sirens that Robbie referenced are Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
