Mary Lands ‘Birds of Prey’ Role Opposite Margot Robbie and Jurnee Smollett-Bell

Just a week ago, Mary was reported to have screen tested for the role of Huntress in the upcoming DC film Birds of Prey opposite Margot Robbie, who’d be reprising her role of Harley Quinn from 2016’s Suicide Squad. Now it has been confirmed that she has landed the role and will star with Margot as well as Underground‘s Jurnee Smollett-Bell, who will take on the role of Black Canary.

In the upcoming film, Huntress is a former mafia princess, who like Batman, saw her family killed at a young age, hence why she became a vigilante. In the movie, the team will fight a Gotham crime lord who has yet to be unveiled though it is rumored to be a character by the name of Black Mask.

Production is scheduled to begin in January and will have a release date of February 7, 2020.

HUGE CONGRATS to Mary on landing this role! I’ve wanted to see her in a superhero film for ages and this is so exciting! She’s going to be fantastic. I’m thrilled for her.
