A very talented artist has given his take on how Jurnee Smollett-Bell could look as Black Canary and it is so good.
It was announced earlier this week that Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Mary Elizabeth Winstead would join Margot Robbie’s Birds of Prey. Some fans were upset at the race bending of Black Canary and I hope this art sways them that Black Canary can be the same character no matter the color of her skin. You can check out the fan art below.
