A Birds of Prey spinoff focused on Black Canary is in the works – and fans are thrilled.
Lovecraft Country showrunner Misha Green will write the script with Birds of Prey producer Sur Kroll serving as a producer.
Green shared the news on Twitter in a post reading: “We’re just at the very beginning of a loooong journey to the screen, but obvs I couldn’t turn down the chance to put the DAMN in The Black Damn Canary with @jurneesmollett! *whispers* so I’m thinking something like: [string of emojis] #BlackCanary.”
Fans have responded to the announcement enthusiastically on Twitter.
One user wrote: “Whaaaaaat. A #BLACKCANARY movie! I’m hyped,” while another added: “Y’all I cannot WAIT!!!”
“DON’T EVEN JOKE WITH ME RIGHT NOW!!! #blackcanary spinoff confirmed????” said someone else.
A fourth person commented: “I used to not know what was my most anticipated DC movie after [The Suicide Squad] was, but now that Black Canary has been confirmed I know what it is.”
“Jurnee Smollett is a PERFECT Black Canary, can’t wait to see more from her, especially with Misha Green onboard! This is gonna be good. #Black Canary,” wrote another user.
Smollett and Green previously worked together on HBO’s acclaimed series Lovecraft Country.
A release date for the Black Canary film is yet to be announced.
