Who would you like to see filling out the Birds of Prey team?

THR has the scoop on the prospective casting for the female-driven superhero film. Margot Robbie was one of those pieces. Although Black Canary is white in the comics, THR states that Warner Bros is looking for "diverse talent" for Birds of Prey's version of the character.

Also in the mix for the role is June Smolett-Bell, who appeared in hit WGN series Underground and will next star as the lead of HBO's Lovecraft Country.

Black Canary possesses a "canary cry" - a high-powered sonic scream that can shatter objects and knock people flat on their ass.

Trump challenges professor over Brett Kavanaugh sex assault claim
They would argue that they'd offered Ford several options for describing her accusation, but that she'd snubbed them. Brett Kavanaugh's accuser is allegedly at fault for not coming forward sooner, according to Donald Trump .

Testing for Huntress includes: Sofia Boutella (The Mummy), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane, Fargo) and Cristin Milioti (Wolf of Wall Street, Black Mirror, How I Met Your Mother).

While Helena Bertinelli's origin story has been tweaked a few times throughout DC's many continuities, the basic bones of her origin story is that she is the daughter of a prominent mafia boss who witnesses the murder of her parents by a rival mafia boss and becomes the Huntress in order to seek revenge - oftentimes in an incredibly violent manner - against the men who murdered her family. Like the modern version of fellow DC Comics character Batwoman, also known as Kate Kane, Renee is a lesbian. She's also usually delivers a great performance. In the comics, she works for the Major Crimes Unit of the Gotham City Police Department and often crosses paths with Batman himself.

While WB is rumored to be looking to "remold" - whatever that means - the character into being 12 years old, they're reportedly looking for an Asian actress to fill the part. Warner Bros.is reportedly looking to cast an Asian actress as Cassandra, one of the many characters to have slipped into the Batgirl suit and who now goes by the moniker Orphan.

Birds of Prey is set to begin filming in 2019.
