After first breaking on the film blog Cinelinx this morning, the Black Canary-focused Birds of Prey spinoff has been confirmed by all the trades throughout the day. And if you’re still in doubt, the news also comes straight from the Canary’s mouth on Instagram:
Smollett will reunite with her Lovecraft Country showrunner Misha Green, who will write the screenplay as an HBO Max original. This news comes on the heels of the recently announced casting of In the Heights star Leslie Grace as Batgirl, also on HBO Max. Perhaps a proper Birds of Prey follow-up is still in the cards?
