We might just be getting that Birds of Prey sequel after all. Reports have now indicated that a Black Canary film is currently in early development at HBO Max. Jurnee Smollett is expected to return to the role she originated in last year’s Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). The film will likely follow the events of the original Birds of Prey film, so there is a strong chance it will also feature Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntress and Rosie Perez’s Renee Montoya.
While nothing has been officially announced by Warner Brothers, Lovecraft Country show runner Misha Green has already been attached as the film’s screenwriter. The project will likely be announced later this year during DC FanDome in October.
