Jurnee Smollett-Bell made her debut as Black Canary earlier this 12 months in BIRDS OF PREY and whereas the movie was well-received by critics, the movie’s so-so pack workplace places right into a query whether or not or not we’ll see a number of the new characters launched in that movie in a future film. That being stated, if one other movie does occur, Smollett-Bell says she would “completely” come again to sing as Black Canary as soon as once more.
While talking with “Entertainment Weekly”, the actress expressed a powerful want to reprise the position within the DC Extended Universe:
“It’s no secret how a lot I liked enjoying Black Canary, and [I was] so honored to tackle that mantle. I’d completely do it once more if given an opportunity.”
Smollett-Bell additionally spoke extremely of working with JOHN WICK co-director Chad Stahelski and the 87Eleven stunt staff. They had been introduced in to spruce up a number of the movie’s motion scenes and the actress additionally revealed she can be right down to work with them as soon as once more as properly:
Hell yeah! I like the 87eleven staff and Chad. I’d love to truly work with Chad, that is for certain on my bucket listing. He has such a present for telling the narrative by way of these actually ingenious motion sequences. The probability to work with 87eleven and do this stuff, sure, completely, completely.”
I do not actually have my finger on the heartbeat on the followers on this one as a result of I loved her within the position however I’ve a sense there might need been points with the portrayal being wholly comedian book correct. I believed she displayed robust display presence and displayed nice chemistry along with her co-stars however given the general reception of BIRDS OF PREY, I’m unsure Warner Bros. will discover any of those characters once more. Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn is returning in James Gunn’s THE SUICIDE SQUAD however no phrase on if we’ll be seeing Black Canary or The Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) or Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez) once more.
