[Confirmed] Misha Green to Write Script for Black Canary Movie (Exclusive) – Cinelinx


Jurnee Smollett Fans black canary will have the chance to see her back in action as a project is currently being written by none other than Misha Green.

[Update: We’re more than happy to say that since the time of this posting, our exclusive has been confirmed! Several trade publications corroborated our report, with both Misha Green and Jurnee Smollett confirming it as well via social media!]

This probably shouldn’t come as a big surprise, and it’s something fans have been asking for since last year. Hell, while doing the press rounds like Lovecraft Country was beginning, Green and Smollett said they would love the chance to work together for a black canary series.

According to a pair of sources, WB decided to make it happen (which works considering HBO passed on a second season of Green’s Lovecraft Country). While a source told me it was a black canary “project” – which could potentially be a series – another source was adamant that the project had become a movie that would (likely) follow the events of Birds of prey. This may be among the straight-to-HBO Max movies being developed for the service (like bat girl and blue beetle)

Aside from Jurnee Smollett reprising the role, any other details about it have been scarce. I heard that WB was ready to give the project (and Misha Green’s involvement) an official announcement through this year’s DC FanDome in October. So hopefully we’ll know more as soon as possible.

Considering how much I enjoyed Lovecraft Country, I’m excited to see what Misha Green brings to superhero history. Not to mention Jurnee Smollett’s incredible performance on the show. Their passion for the character is evident, so I’m ready to see this duo get the chance to do even more with it. black canary.
