Ewan McGregor to play Black Mask in Birds of Prey

Ewan McGregor has signed in to a major tentpole spinoff that, no, still isn’t the one everyone wants him to do. The actor has reportedly joined Birds of Prey, Warner Bros.’ latest attempt to do something with their DC superhero properties. McGregor will play Black Mask, a crime lord who distinguishes himself from Gotham City’s other numerous crime lords by wearing a black skull mask. He joins Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell’s Black Canary, and Rosie Perez’s Renee Montoya. Cathy Yan is directing, and it’s been confirmed that she’s aiming for an R rating. Finally, we can have a Black Mask who wears JUST the mask.
