After what seemed like forever, we finally have confirmation on the casting of Birds of Prey members, Black Canary and Huntress. The film is a spin-off from Suicide Squad being executive-produced by Margot Robbie, who will return in the film as Harley Quinn.
Variety reports that Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Underground, Hands of Stone) has been cast as Dinah Lance aka Black Canary. Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane, Fargo) was also announced to have joined the cast as Helena Bertinelli aka Huntress. (If you’ve been following the fan-cast post for BoP you’ll remember Winstead was one of the picks for Huntress’ fan-cast! Awesome.)
The film will be directed by Cathy Yan and is set for a release date of February 7, 2020. According to rumors, other possible casting includes Cassandra Cain aka Batgirl and Renee Montoya aka Question.
