Superhero fans finally have some positive news to hold onto amid the savage culling of DC projects that has occurred since new Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav came aboard. According to rumours, the Black Canary movie will still be made despite the unceremonious destruction of the Batgirl movie on the big screen. After Birds of Prey, in which Jurnee Smollett made her acting debut as Dinah Lance, debuted in early 2020, the project was originally teased as following. After a period of relative silence, rumour has it that the project is still in the works, with Jussie Smollett still engaged to play the lead role and Lovecraft Country’s Misha Green attached to write the screenplay.
After preparing for the worst with this one, DCEU aficionados can’t control their joy at the canary’s return. Twitter is ablaze with happy responses to the canary’s return. We won. Even if a theatrical release hasn’t been officially announced, it’s still a good day.
Keep in mind that the Green Lantern performance is still running! Here, they struck it lucky. Others, though, are still too wounded by Batgirl to have faith in Black Canary’s absolute safety.
When we’re really settling down to watch it, we’ll believe it. Let’s hope that this results in a new Birds of Prey production with Leslie Grace reprising her role as Barbara Gordon.
As far as we can tell, tax incentives, the same reason Batgirl was fired, are the reason Black Canary has been spared. Therefore, based on how things now stand, Dinah should soon be getting her own independent car. Even said, anybody who is still hesitant about the entire issue may be excused as Batgirl had finished shooting and was prepared to air when it was put on hold.
Beginning production on Black Canary is slated during the spring of 2023.
