We’re all waiting with baited breath to hear whether or not Ewan McGregor will ever return to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, but while the wait continues we can tuck in to a potential appearance in Batman spin-off movie Birds of Prey in the role of Black Mask, due to arrive in cinema’s on 7th February 2020.
Variety look at the film, which focuses heavily on a number of familiar Batman universe characters.
Variety first reported that Warner Bros. was eyeing McGregor for this role when Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jurnee Smollett-Bell joined the cast as Huntress and Black Canary, respectively. At the time, no meeting had taken place, but the studio was eager to work with him again after collaborating on “Doctor Sleep,” the sequel to “The Shining,” where he plays an older version of Danny Torrance.
Huntress, Black Canary, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will battle Black Mask, a kingpin in Gotham City’s criminal underworld who has a fixation with masks. Rosie Perez is set to play Gotham City police detective Renee Montoya.
