The “DETROIT | GOTHAM” photo set stems from everyone calling Detroit “The Real Gotham City.”
Despite the fact that New York is always known for being Gotham, and the fact that a lot of the Christopher Nolan ‘Batman’ Series was filmed in Chicago, Detroit still has the reputation for criminal activity. I used to fight this notion, but as time has gone on, I decided to embrace it, creating a backdrop for my scene, my version of Gotham.
THE JOKER & HARLEY QUINN
Fabled as one of the most mentally unstable relationships in comic book history – The Joker and Harley Quinn maintain their “mad love” for each other, despite their differences. ACRONYM chose to use the classic Harley Quinn look on model Tessa Anderson for this set, while leaning toward Suicide Squad Joker on model Jeff Morawski.

Not much will be known about Katana until the Suicide Squad film is released on August 5, but CinemaBlend shares that Katana is there to protect Rick Flag, who is the team leader. Katana’s character, who’s real name is Tats Yamashiro, is a martial artist, but her sword that she is in control of steals the souls of it’s victims, which also allows her to communicate with said souls that she steals.

Selena Kyle is one of the most glorified Batman villains in the DC Universe, but she also has an entanglement with Batman that cannot be explained in just one sitting. Latex clad, and her sexy form of almost purring when she talks, she’s the best type of adversary to our Dark Knight of Gotham…. Gotham Detroit, that is.

We don’t know a ton about June Moon, Enchantress’s birth given name, other than she went to a party and ended up being cursed and ripped apart by the good and evil sides of her personality. She seems to have some form of water birth, as well, which is where we lay our scene.

With the insane popularity of an almost Debbie Harry version of Harley Quinn, it was obvious that the Joker’s Cheerleader had to be tackled. Sugar, Spice, Bubble Gum, and baseball bat included.

Gotham’s White Knight Harvey Dent was a law man. He believed in truth and justice – that is, until the world was unjust to him. The loss of what he loved and his future caused him to play on luck, and with that, he slowly watched himself become the villain.

Poison Ivy is one of the most seductive, and dangerous villains in the DC Universe, because no man can resist her allure. Not even Superman.
