Gotham City mob boss Black Mask is set to be the villain of Cathy Yan’s upcoming “Birds of Prey” film at Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Films.
Christina Hodson penned the film which will reportedly feature female DC Comics characters Black Canary, Huntress, Renee Montoya, and a young Cassandra Cain who will star alongside star Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
In the comics, Black Mask is the criminal alias of Roman Sionis and a brutally sadistic kingpin with an ebony black mask which was burned onto his face. He’s a skilled improvisational fighter and relentless tactician with vast wealth at his disposal, and in more recent comics has hypnosis-like mind controlling abilities.
Robbie, Sue Kroll and Bryan Unkeless will produce.
