Now that we’ve learned Black Mask will be the villain in the upcoming Birds of Prey movie, one would assume that casting will get underway before long. After all, if cameras are to begin rolling in January of 2019, then we should soon find out which other actors and actresses will be backing up Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
But before the casting department can do their job, fans will naturally take to the internet in order to let Hollywood know who they think should play the likes of Black Canary, Huntress, Rene Montoya, and whomever else is ultimately included.
In fact, there’s already been some digital art circulating that gives us an idea of how certain actresses would look if they were to land these iconic roles. This month alone has brought mock-ups of Alexandra Daddario as Huntress and Blake Lively as Black Canary, and now, “atlant.99” on Instagram has placed Mission: Impossible – Fallout‘s Vanessa Kirby as the latter heroine, which you can be view below.
From where I’m sitting, the classic Black Canary look is on hand, but there also appears to be the ever so slight New 52 influence. Still, the fishnets Dinah’s known to wear have put in an appearance, the absence of which would likely get the tights of many a fan in a twist.
Though I expect for Birds of Prey to focus on the here and now with its headliners, one has to wonder if indeed her romance with Green Arrow will be casually mentioned. This is something that The CW dropped the ball on, so perhaps we’ll one day see Oliver Queen united with his “pretty bird” on the big screen. One can only hope.
