      DC's Birds of Prey Movie Villain is Reportedly Black Mask



      Black Mask will reportedly be the villain of the Birds of Prey movie. Warner Bros. has continued to make strides when it comes to Margot Robbie’s next DC appearance. She’ll reprise her role as Harley Quinn early next year once the all-female team-up movie begins production. Harley won’t be the only DC female (anti)hero to make an appearance, though.
      She’s going to be joined by Black Canary, Huntress, and others. However, who they’ll face largely remained a mystery. Previous reports indicated it would be someone who hasn't previously been seen on the big screen. If the latest report is true, that will indeed be the case.



      The Wrapreports Batman villain Black Mask is going to be the main foe in Birds of Prey. This will be Roman Sionis aka Black Mask’s live-action debut. He's a main player in Gotham's underground crime world, making him a potentially great fit for the film.




      Black Mask has long been the top choice for many to be the villain for Birds of Prey, so it's nice to finally see his name attached to the project - even if it isn't in an official capacity. His inclusion in this specific DC movie is rather intriguing given what we do know about the project. A recently revealed Birds of Prey plot synopsis ties the rescue of Cassandra Cain from a mysterious mob boss, who is now, undoubtedly, Black Mask. Why he has Cain under his control isn't yet clear, but it further illustrates the variety of crime that Black Mask could be involved in and why the Birds of Prey need to take him down.


      This does, however, show the fluidity of DC's plans. Previous reports pointed to
      Penguin being the villain in either Birds of Prey or The Batman. Once the latter appeared to snag Oswald Cobblepot, then Birds of Prey had to turn to its plan B. In doing so, the movie looks to have ripped a page from another Harley-centric film. Black Mask was heavily teased to be the villain in David Ayer's Gotham City Sirens, but there has been little word on that project. His appearance here could further signal the dwindling chance of Sirens being made, or could be used as set up for him to appear again.


      Now that most of the characters set to be in Birds of Prey have been revealed, it may not be too long before casting starts to be announced. A rumored
      shortlist for Black Canary and Huntress surfaced recently, and WB firmly knows what and who they're looking for. Whoever plays this part may not get a lot of face time, so a menacing voice and some name recognition could do the job. Hopefully, the choice of Black Mask proves to be the right one for Birds of Prey's villain.

      Birds of Prey Rumor: Andi Mack Star Eyed For Cassandra Cain Role



      New rumors suggest Andi Mack star Peyton Elizabeth Lee is being eyed for the role of Cassandra Cain in Birds of Prey. Following the success of Wonder Woman, the future of the DC Universe continues to look female. Bringing Margot Robbie back has been a priority, with Robbie especially being drawn to Birds of Prey. Once Warner Bros. hired Cathy Yan to direct the project, this Harley Quinn led movie has become the priority.
      Robbie has described the concept as a girl gang film that will put Harley on the same side as several of DC's female heroes. Recent reports pointed to Black Canary and Huntress being two of her main teammates, but a reported plot synopsis teased the importance of Cassandra Cain. Now, there's some rumors about who could possibly play the young martial artist.


      Two sources are now reporting Birds of Prey is eyeing Andi Mack star Peyton Elizabeth Lee for the role of Cassandra Cain.
      The GWW hinted that Lee was in consideration for the role. Then, a few minutes later, @DanielRPK shared the rumor as well. Daniel stressed in an earlier tweet to take this as a rumor as it isn't from one of his regular sources, but with Walsh also sharing the news, this could be legitimate. It is also possible that both users have a shared source, so take this with a grain of salt for the time being.



      The version of Cassandra Cain that will appear in Birds of Prey is going to be young, possibly even pre-teen. Lee is currently 14 years old, so she fits the possible age range from a casting perspective. Her starring role on Andi Mack is her most notable credit and even gives her ties to the DC Universe. Andi Mack is the same show where Asher Angel made a name for himself, prior to being cast as Billy Batson in Shazam!.
      If Lee is being considered for the role, there's no word on her status or competition. She is the only name to be linked to Cassandra Cain so far. Lee could be the frontrunner or simply the one of the early candidates that impressed. There must be other contenders for the part, but fans will have to wait and see if those named are revealed too. Right now, Lee joins some high profile names as being linked to a Birds of Prey role, although the others are reportedly being eyed for Black Canary and Huntress. The casting process is clearly underway, so Robbie could land some Birds of Prey co-stars before we know it.

      Birds of Prey Rumor: WB Looking to Cast a Biracial Black Canary



      A new rumor suggests that Warner Bros. and DC Films are seeking a biracial actress to play the role of Black Canary in the Birds of Prey movie. One of the many superhero movies Warner Bros. has in development at the moment, Birds of Prey centers upon an all female group of superheroes based out of Gotham City.
      The film, which is being produced by Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie as well as directed by Cathy Yan, will see Robbie's Harley Quinn teaming with the titular team to face a new villain. The team's line-up, largely staying true to the original comics, will reportedly include the Mafia-focused vigilante Huntress as well as Black Canary - a master martial artist with an ultrasonic scream. It was recently rumored that the studio was looking at casting either Vanessa Kirby or Jodie Comer as Black Canary, but now it seems that they may be going in a different direction.




      Heroic Hollywood reports that Warner Bros. is seeking a biracial actress for the role of Black Canary. The studio is also apparently seeking someone with experience as a singer. Their intent is to cast a "world-weary Black Canary who has the ability to sing."




      This take on the character would mirror Dinah Drake in the current timeline of DC Comics' Rebirth, where she is a former government agent who hides in plain sight by posing as the rock star "D.D." while fronting a band called Black Canary - the same code name she uses when fighting crime. While the character of Black Canary has been traditionally portrayed as a light-skinned woman of unspecified ethnicity, there is a precedent for her to be depicted as a biracial character. Plus, she has often been portrayed by biracial actresses. Juliana Harkavy, who plays the role of Dinah Drake/Black Canary on Arrow, is of Dominican, African, Russian, Hungarian, and Chinese ancestry.


      This new rumor also lines-up with an earlier rumor which suggested that Warner Bros. had approached singer/actress
      Lady Gaga about a role in Birds of Prey, but that she turned them down. The rumors also fit an earlier statement by Robbie that they would be hiring a diverse group of actresses to bring the Birds of Prey to life. In addition to Black Canary and the Huntress, the team line-up will reportedly include Cassandra Cain, though it's unclear if the studio is looking at Cain's version of Batgirl or Orphan. Either one is possible, but making her Batgirl would leave room for Barbara Gordon to headline her solo Batgirl film without needing to tie into this movie. Still, this doesn't account for reports that indicate Barbara will still appear in Birds of Prey.


      It is also worth mentioning that this rumor is largely speculative and that no official casting information has been released by DC Films or Warner Bros. regarding the Birds of Preymovie at this time. Still, this rumor, if accurate, does show that the studio is staying true to the basic concept of the character even as they attempt to present a more varied line-up of heroines. That's something fans of Dinah Drake from the comics should be able to appreciate, as the racial ancestry of Black Canary is unimportant so long as she is still a master martial artist who can fight just as well as she can carry a tune.

      Birds of Prey Working Title Revealed, Early 2019 Filming Start Confirmed



      It appears that the highly anticipated Birds of Prey movie is finally moving forward, with a working title and filming start having been set for the film to officially start production. First seeing life as a series of comic book specials before becoming a monthly series in 1999, Birds Of Prey centered upon a partnership between superheroines Barbara Gordon (aka Oracle) and Dinah Lance (aka Black Canary). With the wheelchair-bound Oracle acting as the brains and master martial artist Black Canary the brawn, the two tackled those missions that fell beneath the notice of the superhero orthodoxy.
      Later, under the pen of writer Gail Simone, their team would expand to include the Huntress and Lady Blackhawk and eventually encompassed a rotating group of DC Comics' heroines. Warner Bros. has been developing a Birds of Prey movie starringSuicide Squad standout Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn for some time. Now, the movie takes a major step forward.


      PursueNews reported upon the announcement of the shooting date being set, as well as the working title utilized at Warner Bros. during the early stages of Birds of Prey's development. The movie is scheduled to begin shooting on January 14, 2019 in Los Angeles, and was referred to in studio documents as Fox Force Five.


      Fox Force Five was the name of a fictional television show that never made it past the production of its pilot in the movie
      Pulp Fiction. Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) mentions the show in one scene while discussing her brief flirtation with acting and how she had played one of the titular five - an all-female group of secret agents, each with their own specialty, similar to Charlie's Angels. She describes the Fox Force Five as being made up of her character (a carnival knife-thrower named Raven McCoy) a blonde leader, a French seductress, an African-American demolitions expert and a Japanese martial arts master.


      The connection is immediately obvious, even to those who aren't avid fans of the original comics. The membership of the team has been as notably diverse as the Fox Force Five over the years, employing a number of specialists with Black Canary (a blonde) most frequently acting as the team's field leader. This also ties into early reports that the movie would be centering around a team of five heroines, made up of Harley Quinn, Black Canary, Huntress, the Cassandra Cain Batgirl and Rene Montoya, who took up the identity of The Question in the comics after years as a police detective in Gotham City.
      While this news doesn't tell Birds of Prey fans much more than they already knew, it does speak well of the creative team behind the movie that they used such a clever and fitting reference as a working title. If nothing else, this news is sure to lift fans' spirits now that the long-awaited movie is finally moving forward and due to start shooting soon. More, this means that an official announcement regarding the movie's cast of characters and what actors will be playing them cannot be too far off.

      Birds Of Prey Movie Officially Gets February 2020 Release Date



      Birds of Prey gets a release date, hitting theaters early 2020. Warner Bros. and DC are investing heavily in Margot Robbie's version of Harley Quinn. She broke out in Suicide Squad and fans have been dying to see her appear again ever since. However, it wasn't entirely clear when that would be or what project would get her next. Gotham City Sirens, Suicide Squad 2, and Joker vs Harley Quinn were in consideration, but Birds of Prey ultimately won out. WB brought Cathy Yan on board to direct and has kicked the project's development into high gear.
      Production on Birds of Prey will reportedly begin early next year, which has made many fans wonder when exactly it will be in theaters. Prior to filming beginning, some other steps must be taken, and it looks like casting will come next - as actresses are testing for Black Canary and Huntress. No decision has been made, but we know when they'll all team up.



      The Wrap shared that Warner Bros. officially gave Birds of Prey a release date of February 7, 2020, although Birds of Prey is not the official title. This will make it the first DC movie to come out the gate in 2020 and will also be available in IMAX. The February placement will make Birds of Prey the latest blockbuster looking to capitalize on low competition in that month. Now that the release date is set, it may not be too much longer before WB is ready to officially announce other aspects of the film.




      With Birds of Prey looking to be the next DC movie to enter production, an early 2020 release date was to be expected. That said, the exact date may be a slight surprise to those who've followed Warner Bros.' strategic placeholder announcements in the past. They previously dated February 14, 2020 as a spot for an unannounced DC movie. Birds of Prey will arrive the week prior, and likely because Bond 25 was just delayed to the date both DC and Disney previously staked out. By the looks of 2020's early release schedule, this should be one of the year's first major blockbusters

      Birds of Prey Officially Casts Its Black Canary & Huntress



      Warner Bros.' upcoming Birds of Prey movie has officially cast two of its lead roles, with Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane) claiming the role of Huntress, and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Underground) playing Black Canary. With Margot Robbie set to reprise her role as Harley Quinn, there is now just one more Bird of Prey left to be cast: tough-as-nails detective Renee Montoya.
      Both Winstead and Smollett-Bell were named on a casting shortlist for Birds of Prey, with Winstead beating Margaret Qualley and Cristin Milioti to the role of Helena Bertinelli a.k.a. Huntress, and Smollett-Bell up against Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Janelle Monae for the role of Dinah Lance a.k.a. Black Canary. Christina Hodson (Bumblebee) wrote the screenplay for Birds of Prey, and Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs) is set to direct.

      In addition to this confirmed casting news,
      Deadline reports that there are now just two actresses vying for the role of Renee Montoya: Justina Machado (One Day at a Time) and Roberta Colindrez (Birdman). Montoya is a detective with Gotham City PD, while Black Canary is a vigilante with the ability to incapacitate bad guys using her "canary cry." The movie's Huntress is described as "former mafia princess [who] saw her family killed at a young age," which fits with her comic book origins. Batgirl, who was a member of the Birds of Prey in the comics, is reportedly not in the movie, but Cassandra Cain (who became Batgirl in the comics) will be featured in the story as a young girl whom the team has to save.



      Smollett-Bell is best known for her TV roles in shows like Underground, True Bloodand Friday Night Lights, so Black Canary will be her first role in a major franchise film. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is perhaps best known for her role as Ramona Flowers in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and more recently played the lead role in the minimalist sci-fi horror film 10 Cloverfield Lane.
      Birds of Prey is expected to begin production in 2019 and will arrive in theaters in February 2020, a few months after Wonder Woman 1984's release. Warner Bros. has a lot of DC movies at various stages of development, but the success of Wonder Woman and the popularity of Robbie's Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad were likely factors in putting Birds of Prey on the front burner. Harley Quinn is also set for three other upcoming movies: Suicide Squad 2 and Gotham City Sirens, both of which have David Ayer attached to direct, and The Joker and Harley Quinn, which will be written and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy, Stupid, Love). Of those movies, Suicide Squad 2 will likely arrive in theaters first, though it doesn't yet have a release date.


      With three of the Birds of Prey cast, it won't be long before we find out who will be playing Renee Montoya. We'll keep you updated on any further casting news.

      Birds of Prey Movie Might Get New Title, Adds Venom Cinematographer


      Margot Robbie's Birds of Prey has added Venomand A Star Is Born's cinematographer, but its title could change. Warner Bros. is gearing up to bring Robbie's standout turn as Harley Quinn back to the big screen. Other spinoffs and sequels fell in favor of the direction of the all-female girl gang style story Birds of Preywill have. After bringing Cathy Yan on board to direct, the movie has continued to move through pre-production at the necessary pace to start filming early next year.
      In order to do so, Birds of Prey has been locking in cast members and filling production crew roles. A major step was taken when Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jurnee Smollett-Bell joined as Huntress and Black Canary. The film now has found its cinematographer, and he's confirmed that a new title is likely coming.



      Matthew Libatique spoke to GMA News as he is fresh off working on Venom and A Star Is Born, and he revealed that he's set serve the same role on Birds of Prey. He went on to express his excitement for the project and the crew that is assembled, while also teasing what the movie will be about. In addition to that, he helped clarify Birds of Prey's title status, which could change:
      "I'm in preparation on a film currently called Birds of Prey. It's probably going to have a different title. It’s with Warner Brothers, and the director is Cathy Yan. Who directed a film called Dead Pigs which is a Chinese film. I'm excited. It's, in the superheroes genre but this time it's in the DC universe, not the Marvel universe. Margot Robbie is set to star and I'm excited for that. And then it has a little bit of origin story in it, so it makes it intriguing and it's very early though, so early discussions."



      Libatique's body of work speaks for itself, so him joining Birds of Prey all but guarantees it will look fantastic at the very least. He was nominated by the Academy for his work on Black Swan but has been a frequent collaborator of Darren Aronofsky, as he also was the director of photography on mother!, Requiem for a Dream, Pi, and The Fountain. While he just did Venom, Libatique also worked on Iron Man and Iron Man 2, so he's no stranger to the superhero movie genre.
      As for Birds of Prey's possible new title, this is something that was previously thought to be possible when WB gave it an official 2020 release date. There's still no word on what the actual title of the movie will be, but it would make sense that Harley Quinn will be in the title. After all, Robbie's anti-hero is the known commodity for audiences and the lead by default. Should the title eventually be revealed to be something like Harley Quinn & Birds of Prey, it'd set up a future for more installments without Harley, while still capitalizing on her name at first. Audiences will have to see exactly what WB decides to call Birds of Prey, but the title will hardly be as important to the film's success if it can continue to assemble talent in front of and behind the camera.

      Birds of Prey Movie Casts Ewan McGregor as DC Villain Black Mask



      DC's Birds of Prey movie has cast Ewan McGregor to play the villain Black Mask. It was reported last month that Warner Bros. and DC had their eye on either McGregor or District 9's Sharlto Copley to portray the film's big bad - a character who, at the time, was heavily rumored to be Gotham City mob boss Roman Sionis (aka. Black Mask).
      Birds of Prey itself has started to come together at a steady pace over the past few months, now that production is gearing up to begin in early 2019 (in order to make its scheduled February 2020 released date). Margot Robbie is reprising her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn in the film and will share the screen alongside a team of super-antiheroes that includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane) as mafia heiress-turned-vigilante Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Underground) as rough n' tumble street fighter Black Canary.



      According to The Wrap, McGregor is now in final negotiations to play Black Mask inBirds of Prey (with additional outlets having since confirmed the news). He joins a cast that further includes Rosie Perez (The Counselor) as the Gotham Detective Renee Montoya. It's also been rumored that Peyton Elizabeth Lee (Andi Mack) is circling the role of a young Cassandra Cain, who goes on to become one of the versions of Batgirl in the DC comics.

      Birds of Prey Movie Star Reveals Full Official Title of Harley Quinn Spinoff




      Margot Robbie reveals the full title of DC's upcoming Harley Quinn spinoff, Birds of Prey. Robbie became a pop culture icon her for portrayal of the DC villain in Suicide Squad, which inspired thousands of comic-con geeks, cosplayers, and even Sarah Michelle Gellar's Halloween costume. Co-starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, and directed by Cathy Yan (Dead Pigs), Birds of Prey marks the DCEU's first R-rated and all-female team-led project.
      Casting and production announcements for the films have been rapid over the past few months. Fresh face Ella Jay Basco was recently announced to be playing Cassandra Cain, and Ewan McGregor was cast as main bad guy Black Mask. Story details involve Harley Quinn, Huntress, and Black Canary, as well as pursuant Gotham City detective Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez) teaming up to protect Cassandra, who eventually becomes Batgirl in the comics. Winstead, revealed in an interview that the basis of Birds of Prey is following Harley Quinn's initiative to form a team of her own. The film is slated to begin shooting in January 2019, with the theatrical release aimed for February 2020. It now appears that the premise of Harley Quinn's transformation into a team leader will be everything fans have hoped for.


      Robbie took to Instagram to share the full script title: Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Warner Bros. has since confirmed this is, in fact, the film's official title, and not Robbie's annotation for her script copy. Check out the post below:

      The post has already gotten over half a million likes from Robbie's 14.8 million following. The title strongly suggests that Birds of Prey will involve at least part of DC's 2016 Harley Quinn comic series (featuring the Robbie costume design), in which she leaves the Joker for good.



      For many fans, this development is everything they've hoped for. Since the character of Harley Quinn was introduced in
      Batman: The Animated Series, the Joker's abusive treatment of her has been compared to domestic violence issues. Some fans objected to the Joker/Harley Quinn relationship storyline in Suicide Squad as romanticizing or condoning intimate partner violence. But by looks of it, Birds of Prey definitely marks Harley Quinn's freedom from prisons imposed by both the Joker and Amanda Waller. It's likely that she'll be seen not only as her own kind of hero, but as someone completely in charge of herself. Since fans were first introduced to Robbie's version of the character dangling from a prison ceiling with Leslie's Gore's "You Don't Own Me" playing in the background, the promise has been a long time coming.

      DC's Birds of Prey Movie Adds Chris Messina, Fills Out Its Cast



      The complete cast for Birds of Prey reveals Chris Messina's addition as DC Comics villain Victor Zsasz. After Margot Robbie broke out in her role as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. and DC Films have selected Birds of Prey to be her next appearance. The movie will once again team Harley up with other DC characters, but it will be an entirely different set up this time.
      Birds of Prey will pair Harley with DC heroines Black Canary and Huntress. Casting these two roles was an early priority for the studios and director Cathy Yan due to their significant roles in the movie. After a shortlist of contenders surfaced, Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Mary Elizabeth Winstead were cast as Black Canary and Huntress respectively. But, since Birds of Prey is a team up movie, it means that there must be villains to fight. Ewan McGregor will fill the lead villain role as Black Mask, but he will not be alone.


      Deadline revealed the full cast list for Birds of Prey, which includes the confirmation of Chris Messina and others. Messina (Sharp Objects) will play the DC villain Victor Zsasz who will work with Black Mask in the movie. Messina will be the third person to play Zsasz in a live-action setting after Anthony Carrigan (Gotham) and Tim Booth (Batman Begins), although THR shares John Leguizamo was going to play the part before Messina but had to drop out. In addition to Messina's casting, it has also been confirmed that Steven Williams (The Chi), Derek Wilson (Preacher), Dana Lee (Dr. Ken), Francois Chau (The Expanse), and Matthew Willig (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) have all joined the cast of Birds of Prey - but their roles have not yet been revealed. The Wrap also reported comedian Ali Wong has joined the cast as an associate of Renee Montoya, as well as the addition of Robert Catrini.


      Victor Zsasz was created by Alan Grant and Norm Breyfogle in 1992. After losing all of his money to gambling, Zsasz is on the brink of committing suicide. He is assaulted right before he ends his life and instinctively kills his attacker instead. In this moment, Zsasz finds what he believes to be his purpose and sets out to liberate people from their miserable lives. His insanity doesn't stop there, as he also carves a tally mark into his skin for each of his kills. The combination of him and Black Mask could make for an intimidating rogues gallery for the Birds of Prey to try and defeat. However, since there are no details given on the other cast members' characters, they could play any number of roles, such as henchmen, fellow criminals, or even have ties to the main heroes.


      Now that these eight new cast members are confirmed for Birds of Prey, it looks like the entire main cast list is set. Other additions to the film's cast include
      Rosie Perez as Detective Renee Montoya and Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain. If there are any smaller roles that need to be filled, those announcements should be made sooner than later, as Birds of Prey is quickly approaching the start of production.
