New Birds of Prey concept art reveals some different looks for Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Black Canary.

Black Canary has had her fair share of live-action appearances over the years, especially on the Arrowverse. Birds of Prey was the first time Black Canary has ever appeared on the big screen, played by Jurnee Smollett-Bell. It’s unclear if we will continue to see stories of the characters who were introduced in Birds of Prey, but Black Canary was a fan favorite for many.

At the end of Birds of Prey, we finally get to see Black Canary use her powers, which is why many want to see her again. We also saw a new look for her at the end of the film as well. Costume concept artist Greg Hopwood shared some different looks for Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Black Canary that were considered. You can see the different looks below.

Here is the official synopsis for Birds of Prey:

“You ever hear the one about the cop, the songbird, the psycho and the mafia princess? Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a twisted tale told by Harley herself, as only Harley can tell it. When Gotham’s most nefariously narcissistic villain, Roman Sionis, and his zealous right-hand, Zsasz, put a target on a young girl named Cass, the city is turned upside down looking for her. Harley, Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya’s paths collide, and the unlikely foursome have no choice but to team up to take Roman down.”

Directed by Cathy Yan from a script penned by Bumblebee writer Christina Hodson, Birds of Prey stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Ella Jay Basco as Cassandra Cain, Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya, Chris Messina as Victor Zsasz, Ewan McGregor as Black Mask, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Ali Wong, Robert Catrini, and Michael Masini have also been cast in undisclosed roles.

Birds of Prey is now available on Digital HD and will be released on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on May 12, 2020.
