Variety is reporting that newcomer Ella Jay Basco (Veep) is in final talks to portray Cassandra Cain, aka Orphan, in the upcoming DC adaptation, Birds of Prey. In the movie, Harley Quinn, Huntress, and Black Canary team up to protect Cassandra, the daughter of David Cain and Lady Shiva, from the terrifying mobster, Black Mask.
Cathy Yan is set to direct, with the film currently releasing on February 7th, 2020. We’ve got a ways to go before production begins on this one, but the cast has shaped up to be something quite special.
What an insane day for Swamp Thing news! After the surprise addition of Matthew Cable earlier today, it’s now being reported that Kevin Durand (The Strain) is in final talks to play Jason Woodrue, aka The Floronic Man, in the upcoming DC Universe streaming series.
Originally introduced in the pages of The Flash, Woodrue was released from prison by Avery Sunderland before going on to become one of Swamp Thing’s most prominent rivals throughout comic history.
Deadline is reporting that Henderson Wade (Riverdale) has joined the case of Swamp Thing as Matthew Cable, “a Louisiana lawman who finds himself in dire straits when supernatural evil threatens the town he’s sworn to protect.”
This makes quite the intriguing addition to the cast, as Matthew Cable has ties to both Len Wein’s original run of Swamp Thing, and Doom Patrol, which could lead to quite a fantastic crossover. Additionally, Cable also has ties to Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, being one of Morpheus’ Ravens after his eventual death. Perhaps we may finally see that live-action Sandman after all?
The DC Universe streaming series, Swamp Thing, continues to round out its cast, with the addition of Will Patton (Halloween, Armageddon) as the show’s villain, Avery Sunderland. According to Deadline‘s description on Sunderland, this take will “serve as the de facto patriarch of his Louisiana hometown, always giving back to the community. His benevolent veneer, however, masks a ruthless determination to harness the power of the swamp for profit.”
In the original comics, Sunderland was a minor character setting up the introduction of The Floronic Man, so it’s entirely possible we may see a major villain in the second season of the series.
As has been rumored for quite some time, multiple outlets are reporting that Ewan McGregor (Christopher Robin) has been cast in the role of frequent Batman rogue, Roman Sionis, aka Black Mask. Black Mask is a frequent villain of the Dark Knight, having even been behind the murder of Stephanie Brown during her tenure as Robin.
McGregor joins a cast that includes Margot Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn, Jurnee Smollet-Bell as Black Canary, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya. Birds of Prey hits theaters on February 7th, 2020.

According to Deadline, while speaking at the US-China Entertainment Summit at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles last night, Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan confirmed that the film is aiming for an R-rating. That was said to be one of Margot Robbie’s most adamant requests when pitching the film to Warner Bros.
Yan, the first female Asian director to ever helm a superhero film, went on to talk about landing the director’s chair, and her love of the script.
“I did my homework. I wouldn’t say it was easy, but it was relatively painless and straightforward. I immediately loved the script and it felt like something I could really do, and it felt very much like my own voice. I could not put the script down, it had so much dark humor to it which a lot of my work does, and there are themes of female empowerment which are so strong and relateable.
So I went in with, not with confidence, but at least a sense that I belonged in the room, that somehow magically in terms of timing and luck that this opportunity was open to me and I was definitely going to make the best of it.”
We recently got our first look at Ruby Rose as Batwoman, and now we have an official look at actor LaMonica Garrett (Designated Survivor) as Elseworlds‘ Mar-Novu, aka The Monitor. The Monitor is described in the upcoming event as “a cosmic being of infinite power.” The Monitor oversees the safety of the Multiverse in the comics, defending it from his rival, the Anti-Monitor.
Details on his involvement in the crossover are still sparse, but it certainly makes for an exciting mystery before the December air-dates of the Arrow crossover. Hit the jump for a look at the official image.

According to The Wrap, Warner Bros. has announced that actress Jeryl Prescott (The Walking Dead) is joining the cast of the DC Universe series, Swamp Thing, in the role of mysterious fortune-teller, Madame Xanadu, on the upcoming show, which is set to air in 2019.
This will mark Madame Xanadu’s live-action debut, with the character being described as “A centuries-old sorceress who finds herself reluctantly drawn into battle against the escalating supernatural forces plaguing a small Louisiana town. A blind fortune teller and magical crusader, Xanadu’s heart is in the right place despite her unorthodox methods in the fight against evil.”
Warner Bros. has officially announced that they’re delaying Patty Jenkins’ highly anticipated Wonder Woman 1984 from its original release date of November 1st, 2019 to June 5th, 2020, giving it a coveted summer release date. The announcement was made by star Gal Gadot on her Twitter with the image above.
“We had tremendous success releasing the first Wonder Woman film during the summer so when we saw an opportunity to take advantage of the changing competitive landscape, we did. This move lands the film exactly where it belongs.”
Stephen Amell has released the official Elseworlds poster on his Twitter account for The CW’s three-night superhero crossover event. The poster reveals that destiny will be rewritten with Amell and The Flash actor Grant Gustin switching roles in the upcoming romp through the multiverse.
