According to Variety, Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Underground) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane) will join Margot Robbie in Cathy Yan’s Birds Of Prey movie! Winstead will portray Huntress and Smollett-Bell will play Black Canary, while Margot Robbie will reprise her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn.
While nothing is confirmed, the report states that the three characters will team-up to fight an unconfirmed (Black Mask?) crime-lord. For those of you that don’t read comics, Huntress is described as a former mafia princess who was devastated at a young age when her family was killed, while Black Canary is described as a good-natured and idealistic streetfighter.
