The DC universe is full steam ahead over at Warner Brothers Pictures, with Wonder Woman in production and Batman v Superman set to hit theaters next year. With Wonder Woman (confirmed) to star in Justice League: Part One along with Mera (rumored), WB is looking to add another female to the Justice League roster. According to Latino Review, Warner Bros. is looking to add Black Canary to the team.
Dinah Drake or Dinah (Laurel) Lance is a superhero named Black Canary and usually has ties to Green Arrow and Batman. She is also excellent in hand-to-hand combat along with her signature “Canary Cry”. With her possibly appearing in Justice League: Part One and Two casting will have to start fairly soon. Latino Review is also reporting that Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Alona Tal (Supernatural) are the frontrunners for the role. If Black Canary is the breakout character they are hoping for, expect her to star in a Birds of Prey film which is currently in development.
The Birds of Prey are usually an all-female that consist of Black Canary, Oracle, Huntress and more. With Oracle rumored to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the Batman solo film, a Birds of Prey film is definitely possible as audiences are familiar with the character. With Black Canary appearing does this mean that Green Arrow might make an appearance? This is definitely an interesting story, stay tuned for more updates.
Justice League: Part One is set to hit theaters November 17th, 2017.
