We’ve already seen Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn share the screen with one crazy Batman villain, but it seems that in the upcoming Birds of Prey film, Harley and friends will face masked foe, Black Mask.
Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey will see Harley team up with some more of DC’s badass ladies, including Black Canary, Huntress, Cassandra Cain (Batgirl), and Renee Montoya – and it seems that The Wrap has reported that the film has found its villain in the form of Black Mask.
In the comics, Black Mask – or Romain Sionis – is a Batman foe and criminal kingpin who is known for wearing a skull mask. After having ruined his family business and murdering his parents, Sionis assumed his villainous identity and created his own criminal organisation, the False Face Society.
The character was created by Tom Mandrake and Doug Moench, first appearing in 1985’s Batman #386, and while he’s appeared in numerous video games and animated features, Birds of Prey will be the villain’s big screen debut.
Production on Birds of Prey is expected to begin in January 2019.
