Artist Imagines Vanessa Kirby As Black Canary In ‘Birds of Prey’

Black Canary DC ComicsA very talented DC comics fan has created a gorgeous rendering of Mission: Impossible – Fallout’s Vanessa Kirby as Black Canary in the upcoming Birds of Prey adaptation.

Since Mission: Impossible released the latest installment in theatres, fans have been clamoring for Kirby to play the role of Black Canary in Birds of Prey. While casting for the film is still under wraps, shooting for Birds of Prey is expected to begin early next year. So, we should be hearing some casting news very soon. If fans get their way Kirby will be joining Margot Robbie, who will be playing Harley Quinn. Hopefully, the actress will look as good as she does in Instagram user “atlant.99’s” artwork:

Though Kirby would be a great pick for the role, rumors have been swirling that WB is eyeing Blake Lively for the role. While both would fit in quite well, this art may have fans leaning a little more towards Kirby for Birds of Prey.

What do you think? Would you like to see Kirby join Birds of Prey as Black Canary? Let us know down in the comments!

Black Canary can be the next big female superhero to hit the mainstream.

Black Canary has had a long history in the pages of DC Comics since her introduction. She has been a star, a co-star with Green Arrow, a member of the Justice League and so on.
