According to Variety, Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been cast as Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell will play Black Canary in Birds of Prey. They join Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, who is also producing the movie.

There are still a few main roles that need to be filled. Justina Machado and Roberta Colindrez have auditioned to play Renee Montoya, a lesbian Gotham police detective. Cassandra Cain will also appear in the movie as a 12 year old girl, and Warner Bros. is looking to cast an Asian actress. The villain will reportedly be Black Mask, and we haven’t heard any casting news about him yet.
