Huntress and Black Canary Cast for the Birds of Prey Movie!

Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield LaneFargo) will play Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (UndergroundTrue Blood) will play Black Canary in Warner Bros. Pictures and DC’s upcoming Birds of Prey movie, according to Variety. Warner Bros. and DC recently set a February 7, 2020 release date for the film.

Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad is also expected to be joined in Birds of Prey by Cassandra Cain, and Renee Montoya. Actresses are currently testing for the various roles.

Robbie previously said the film will be “different,” rated R, and made with a “much smaller budget.”

The villain for Birds of Prey is Gotham City mob boss Black Mask. Created by Doug Moench and Tom Mandrake, Black Mask first appeared in Batman #386 in August of 1985. The character is a brutally sadistic kingpin in Gotham City’s criminal underworld who has a fixation with masks.

Cathy Yan will direct the Warner Bros. release from a script by Christina Hodson. Birds of Prey will be produced by Margot Robbie, Kroll & Co Entertainment’s Sue Kroll, and Clubhouse Pictures’ Bryan Unkeless.
