New Mary Interview in Total Film

Total Film magazine was on the set of Gemini Man last year and during their visit, they managed to snag Mary for a quick Q&A. In the interview, Mary describes her character and how she meets Will’s character Henry, how much she enjoyed playing the role of DIA agent Danny and how Ang Lee described his vision of the film to her. You can read all about it as I’ve uploaded all the scans into the gallery!

Mary was also asked about Birds of Prey and she said the following:

“You can expect something really fun and a bit wild and totally unique. Everyday we were there, we were doing something that just felt really weird and funny and unlike anything else I’ve ever seen before in this genre. It was incredibly exciting to get to do that. We really got to work. We just played, and we had fun.”

Two new actresses have been added to the long list of the Birds of Prey cast. First up is actress Charlene Amoia. Amoia, who played Wendy the Waitress in CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, will play Maria Bertinelli, the mother of Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s vigilante the Huntress/Helena Bertinelli and the wife of mafia syndicate gangster Franco Bertinelli.

And according to the imdb cast list, Ella Mika will be playing a ‘young Helena Berinelli’ in the film.

Additionally, it is being rumored that if Birds of Prey does well at the box office, we could potentially see a spinoff of Mary’s character the Huntress.

According to sources close to We Got This Covered, Warner Bros. is developing solo movies for Huntress, Black Canary and Cassandra Cain that could be going into production if Birds of Prey proves a big enough hit at the box office. Additionally, it’s said that Rosie Perez’s character Renee Montoya could be getting the same treatment, too, though this possibility is deemed less likely.
