From the look of things, the actress is very excited to be a part of the fim.
Ella Jay Basco was cast as Cassandra Cain in the upcoming Birds of Prey film back in November. In the DC comic universe, Cassandra Cain took over the mantle of Batgirl after Barbara Gordon was shot and paralyzed during the events of the Alan Moore comic, Batman: The Killing Joke. She was the daughter of David Cain and Lady Shiva, raised to be an assassin before leaving that lifestyle behind and meeting Bruce Wayne. In the upcoming film, she will reportedly run afoul the Black Mask after obtaining a particular diamond that he wants.
