Black Canary movie could be in development by Lovecraft Country scriptwriter | Tomatazos

Although the DC cinematic universe, better known as the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), has not had it easy with its projects, there are still many plans to continue exploiting its characters. In 2020, one of the few superhero films that managed to be released was Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of a Harley Quinn – 75%, which had a very low box office gross of just $ 202 million worldwide. However, the reception among critics was good and some of the new characters introduced were well received among fans, one of them was Black Canary, played by Jurnee Smollett-Bell.

Now, a report from Cinelinx which was endorsed by Collider (via Comic Book), says Smollett-Bell will be back as Black Canary in an HBO Max spin-off, which will be written by Misha Green , showrunner of the canceled Lovecraft Country – Loki new TV spot drives fans crazy Tomatazos100%, a series for which he is nominated for an Emmy in the category “Best Screenplay – Dramatic Series.” According to the outlet, the spinoff will be an exclusive feature film by HBO Max and will be part of the platform’s new original films dedicated to DC superheroes such as Batgirl and Blue Beetle.

Comic Book points out that after this information was made known, the words of Smollett-Bell and Green, who were interviewed by Variety a few days ago and questioned about a possible collaboration for a Black Canary project. They worked together previously on the series Underground (2016) and Lovecraft Country, and this is what the actress said:

It’s no secret how much I love Black Canary. She is an incredible character and it was a dream to play her. Yes [la] Dynamics is given in the right way, I absolutely would in the blink of an eye, and God knows I follow Misha wherever she takes me.

Misha Green answered:

I mean, you can’t help but imagine it a little … like, ‘What would I do with a Black Canary show?’ It would be exciting, I know.

Because the project would be in its early stages of development, it is not known if the story would be set before or after what was seen in Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of a Harley Quinn, a film in which Black Canary is part of the team that makes up Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) to protect little Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco), junto a Helena Bertinelli / Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) y Renée Montoya (Rosie Perez). The film failed at the box office but Harley Quinn already had a new opportunity to shine on the big screen in The suicide squad – Loki new TV spot drives fans crazy Tomatazos91%, and it is very likely that Smollett-Bell will also have his second chance.

As stated before, the DCEU may be a disaster and not have the cohesion that the Marvel Cinematic Universe does, but it is clear that Warner wants to exploit it as much as possible. Tapes like Suicide squad they take up previously introduced characters and put a new twist on them; Although the results at the box office of the latter were not as expected, on HBO Max it has had good audience numbers, and we must remember that we are in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.
