Actresses Rumored For Black Canary Role In Justice League, Possible Birds Of Prey Movie

BirdsofPrey

Following the release of the first image from the Wonder Woman movie, DC and Warner Brothers are keeping the momentum of female heroes strong.

A new rumor suggests that Black Canary will be making a debut in the DC Extended Universe, and no, its won't be Caity Lotz or Katie Cassidy of the DC TV Universe.

According to the rumor, actresses Abbey Lee of Mad Max: Fury Road and Alona Tal or Burn Notice and Supernatural are being eyed for the role of Black Canary. The debut is said to come in Justice League: Part One or Two.

The rumor also suggests that Black Canary plans are not limited to Justice League ensemble films but also a Birds of Prey movie which is in development. The Birds of Prey is a group comprised of a number of female DC heroes, including Black Canary and Barbra Gordon, who is likely being introduced in Batman v. Superman and portrayed by Jena Malone. We recently asked Malone to share some details on her upcoming DC role, but she couldn't share any.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters March 25, 2016.

    These gals are younger than I'd like. Dinah and Oliver should be closer in age to Ben's Batman. Hopefully a Green Arrow casting will be soon too. Also I hope J'onn J'onzz will be in JL too.

    they're probably establishing Batman as the oldest member of the team, the mentor role for Green Arrow. Green Arrow will be a couple of years younger (5-10) and Black Canary will be around the same age or younger. These actress's aren't too young for the role it should be interesting to see that relationship between Batman and Green Arrow on screen since we'll never get that on the tv show Arrow.

    I'm fine with thwir ages, since the DCEU is mot supposed to be a direct translation of the comics, but rather a multiversal interpretation of it.

    Still, I agree with you about Martian Manhunter whole heartedly. He is one of the main characters that I wanna see, along with Deathstroke, & Plastic Man.

    And the Hawks. If Snyder still has it in him after the JL movies, he was born to do a Hawkman movie.
