WB’s Wish-List of Actresses For Margot Robbie’s ‘Birds of Prey’ Movie Revealed

Aug 3, 2018

Some have been asking us about the casting for Birds of Prey, and while nobody is in talks we have a few names that seemed to be an interest to Warner Bros.

We’ve been working with a source with knowledge of the casting for Birds of Prey and have come to learn of a wish-list of actresses that Warner Bros. seemingly wants for the roles of Huntress and Black Canary.

However, these are just actresses they are keen on for the roles.

The three names we’ve heard include Blake Lively, Alexandra Daddario, and Vanessa Kirby.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout‘s Vanessa Kirby was a strong standout in the film and is seeming free as Hobbs and Shaw will wrap just before Birds of Prey is set to begin filming in Los Angeles on January 15th.


Both Kirby and Alexandra Daddario will have shared the screen with Henry Cavill (Superman) and Dwayne Johnson (Black Adam) .

As Daddario recently worked with Henry on the crime thriller Nomis and first got noticed by many from her small role in HBO’s True Detective.


Blake Lively isn’t a stranger to DC roles having played the female lead in Green Lantern and is taking an action turn with upcoming film for Bond producer Barbara Broccoli in The Rhythm Section. One of her first big breakout roles was in Ben Affleck’s (Batman) The Town.

Warner Bros. had no comment on the report.

We first heard this news days ago and have been hinting to the wish-list on Twitter since last month.


Warner Bros. has yet to give Birds of Prey an official release date.
