BIRDS OF PREY Casting Underway With Actress Shortlist

BIRDS OF PREY Casting Underway With Actress Shortlist

Production on the DCEU's Birds of Prey film is moving forward with the planned ensemble film officially receiving its working title.

THR has the scoop on the prospective casting for the female-driven superhero film. While there have been no casting announcements for the upcoming ensemble film, Margot Robbie is expected to reprise her role as Harley Quinn. Actresses from around Hollywood are reportedly being considered for roles to join Harley Quinn's (Margot Robbie) squad in the film. THR adds that singer and actress Janelle Monae, who has had roles in Moonlight and Hidden Figures, is also in the running - but it's not clear if she actually tested for the part. All of these actresses are promising, although I'll admit that it would be pretty damn cool if Janelle Monae ended up with this role.

For the role of Huntress, a criminal-killing vigilante who took aim at the Gotham City underworld following the murders of her mafia-oriented family, Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane) have either tested or read for the role.

Lawyer Debra Katz writes that Ford's "strong preference" remains a full investigation before she testifies. Neither Ford's allegations nor Kavanaugh's denials are wholly implausible on their face.

India is planning to buy five S-400 Triumf air defence systems from Russian Federation for an estimated $4.5 billion. Security analysts in Asia said the move was largely symbolic and would only push Moscow and Beijing closer together.

Additionally, Democratic senators are calling for more witnesses and more time for the FBI to investigate the allegations. Prof Ford's legal team say they have written to Senate Judiciary Committee declining its offer to testify.

There have been two different looks for Huntress - a White and more scantily clad version in the pre-Rebirth era, and a darker-skinned, more practically dressed, Italian woman in the current Rebirth timeline. The modern Huntress - Helena Bertinelli - is the daughter of a mob boss.

Admittedly, I don't know too much about the Renee Montoya version of The Question (though the version from the fantastic Justice League: Unlimited cartoon was one of my favorite characters from that entire series). She's also usually delivers a great performance. Montoya is a lesbian detective on the Gotham City police force. 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. THR's sources indicate that the studio is "seeking to remold the character", who had limited human contact in her childhood and who grew up to become a mute and illiterate assassin, as a 12-year-old girl.
