Ewan McGregor Rumored To Be Black Mask In ‘Birds Of Prey’

New word on the Birds of Prey potential cast. Word is that they are eyeing Ewan Mcgregor to join the cast as the False Face Society leader Roman Sionis, better known as Black Mask.

We All Wear Masks

Black Mask has quite the sad story which can be found here, but the short version is that he is a rival to Bruce Wayne and resents everything that the playboy millionaire stands for. He causes quite the chaos in Gotham and seeing what part he will be playing with the ladies of Birds of Prey will be incredibly interesting.

The Higher Ground

Ewan McGregor is no stranger to the big screen, I mean this is the man who gave us General Kenobi in the Star Wars franchise. Also he has given us heartwarming performance in movies like Big Fish and more recently Christopher Robin. Seeing him take on a villain role in the super hero verse will be exciting, to say the least.

With other cast mates like Margot Robbie, who is coming back as Harley Quinn, as well as actresses like Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jurnee Smollett-Bell, who joined the cast as Huntress and Black Canary respectively, we are beginning to see everything coming together.

The film set to be released in theaters February 7, 2020 and is directed by Cathy Yan.

For McGregor and Winstead this will be a reunion as the two acted side by side in the series Fargo. While not too much is known on what part Sionis will be playing in the story, I for one think McGregor would be an amazing addition to an already stellar cast.
