Birds of Prey Star Plays Coy on Black Canary Spinoff Movie Release Window

Birds of Prey star Jurnee Smollett remains tight-lipped regarding the release window of his upcoming Black Canary spin-off project on HBO Max.


Birds of prey star Jurnee Smollett recently played coy when asked about the black canary derivative movie output window.


Smollett remained tight-lipped about when fans can expect the film to hit HBO Max during an interview with The cup. “I can’t say anything,” she replied when the interviewer brought up black canary like a 2023 release. “I can’t even confirm or deny what you just said.” Smollett presumably follows the example of representatives of Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Studios, neither of which has commented publicly black canarypremiere date.

Smollett confirmed that a black canary the spin-off was in the works in August 2021. As part of her announcement, the star also verified reports that Lovecraft Country Showrunner Misha Green was on board to pen the film’s script. Smollett updated fans on the progress of the production nearly a year later, speaking enthusiastically about the opportunity to focus on the facets of Dinah Lance’s character only hinted at in Birds of prey. “I’m excited to be able to explore a lot…I feel like we’ve only scratched the surface with Black Canary,” she said. “And she’s one of the most dope martial artists in the DC Universe. It’s something that’s a real challenge in my head that I’m just excited to be able to explore further and further and further and further.”

Discovery and President David Zaslav for films based on DC properties is that “[they] should hit theaters or not at all. A representative from Warner Bros. Pictures has finally dispelled rumors that the the studio was scrapped black canaryconfirming that the development on the project was still advancing.

If this were to remain the case, black canary won’t just have confounded the predictions of the rumor mill – it may even have survived the DC Extended Universe itself. Recent press releases from DC Studios’ new co-presidents and co-CEOs, James Gunn and Peter Safran, and several senior Warner Bros. indicate that the DCEU nickname is dead, replaced by the more simplified “DC Universe” label. How it might affect black canarywhich is ostensibly set in DCEU continuity, is currently unclear.
