It’s been reported that Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor has boarded Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey. The Wrap is exclusively reporting that McGregor will be taking on the role of Black Mask. Over the summer the actor had been strongly rumoured to be Warner Bros. favourite to take the role.
Black Mask made his first appearance in the pages of Batman #386in 1985. Whilst not one of the A-list Gotham villains he has still made his mark on the comics. Mask famously killed female Robin Stephanie Brown in classic continuity.
Birds of Prey stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya. The movie will be directed by Cathy Yan and arrives in cinemas on February 7, 2020.
