Belle's Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Underground's Jurnee Smollett-Bell are both reportedly in the running for the role of Black Canary, the martial arts expert with a sonic scream.

TheWrap has revealed several names now going out for roles in DC's upcoming girl-gang film Birds of Prey, including Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Warner Bros. Birds of Prey movie is gearing up to give Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn the maximum amount of screen time.

Reports have it that Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane), Cristin Milioti (Black Mirror), Sofia Boutella (The Mummy), and Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers) are all in consideration for the role of Huntress (aka Helena Bertinelli), who, in the comics becomes a vigilante super-hero whose goal is eliminating mob activity. As THR notes, Black Canary is canonically a white woman, but Warner Bros.is "looking for diverse talent for Birds of Prey" - and that apparently includes selecting an actress of color to play Black Canary. There are several different versions of Huntress in the comics. However, I do know that she is a detective in the Gotham Police Department and a lesbian who has often been in shown to be in a relationship with Kate Kane/Batwoman. Renee eventually takes up the mantle of the Question, succeeding her mentor Charles Victor Szasz, better known as Vic Sage. Warner Bros.is reportedly looking to cast an Asian actress as Cassandra, one of the many characters to have slipped into the Batgirl suit and who now goes by the moniker Orphan.

Decisions are supposed to be made over the next two weeks in order to be ready to fill by the start of 2019, which means we'll hopefully be hearing official casting news in early October.
