With Birds of Prey finally rounding out its cast, Huntress actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Fargo) gives us some details on her preparation for the role.
In an interview with The Wrap
, Winstead said: I’m going to start training, and I’ll be learning how to shoot a bow and arrow, too — which is new for me.
The crossbow is Huntress’ signature weapon of choice in the comics. Winstead went on to say that she wasn’t a big comic reader, but director Cathy Yan
won her over: I can’t say that I was a huge comic book reader, but when I met with Cathy Yan, who’s directing the film, and learned kind of the back story of the character, I was really interested.
Winstead then briefly spoke about what made her take the role: It’s a really strong, kind of emotional place to start from for a superhero character. I won’t go into too much detail now, but I think it’s interesting and an opportunity to do something cool with this kind of character.
We can’t wait to see what Winstead brings to the role of Huntress. For the complete interview, visit The Wrap.
Birds of Prey will fly into theaters February 7th, 2020.
