Black Canary and Huntress Rumored To Be in BIRDS OF PREY

We don’t know too much about Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey film. Margot Robbie has described it as “R-rated girl gang film” and The Wrap has reported that Catwoman will not be in it. However, it appears that Batgirl will make an appearance before her solo film, but no other heroines have been named. Omega Underground is saying that they believe Huntress and Black Canary will be in the film though. There have not been any casting calls or any details to confirm the rumor, but it does make sense to have these two in the film. Black Canary has seen some growing popularity since her introduction on Arrow and Huntress could be a great lesser known character to introduce. If you don’t know anything about the characters, here are excerpts from their wiki pages.

Black Canary is a superhero vigilante who fights crime using martial arts and a sonic scream attack. She is one of the greatest fighters in the DC Universe, and also a strong tactical mind. Her costume is an attractive black outfit with fishnet stockings and blonde hair, and she is usually seen riding her motorcycle.
The original version is a member of the Batman Family, named Helena Wayne and written as the daughter of Batman and Catwoman on Earth-Two. She was re-written as the devout Catholic Italian-American Helena Bertinelli, the orphaned daughter of a murdered mafia family who grew up swearing deadly vengeance on the criminal underworld. Batman has frowned on her for her willingness to kill, although over time she has gotten used to more conventional methods of crime-fighting and found wider acceptance as a vigilante.

So, if these women are indeed in the film, who would you like to see play them?
