New Casting Updates for Birds of Prey; Spin-offs Rumored
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.
This is very exciting news! Can’t wait to see the first trailer for the movie.
Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) will hit theaters on February 7, 2020.
