As Wonder Woman has started production as of last week, it looks like the female DC heroes on the big screen are about to possibly increase. Latino-Review is reporting today that Abbey Lee (from Mad Max: Fury Road) and Alona Tal (From Supernatural, Burn Notice) are being looked at for the role of Black Canary who is a big character in the Green Arrow mythology and one the iconic female superheroes in DC Comics.
According to Latino-Review, Black Canary is rumored to be making her debut in either part 1 or part 2 of Zack Snyder’s Justice League that will feature the creation of the epic superhero team in DC Comics. But that’s not all as Warner Bros. is also looking at using the introduction of Black Canary on the big screen for a Birds of Prey movie, which is a team that Black Canary is famous for being part of.
Currently, Dinah Laurel Lance/Black Canary is played by Katie Cassidy on the CW hit series Arrow featuring Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. That show has also introduced her mother Dinah Drake where she was played by Doctor Who’s very own Alex Kingston.
