Ewan Mc Gregor Cast as Black Mask in Birds of Prey

Sionis was forced to befriend Bruce Wayne (AKA Batman) and the hypocrisy of his parents and the "masks" they wore in public had an effect on him to the point that he turned to evil. Ewan McGregor has been tapped to play Black Mask in Birds of Prey, the next DC movie heading into production from Warner Bros. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who McGregor starred alongside in the third season of Fargo, is set too play The Huntress while Jurnee Smolett-Bell will portray Black Canary and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya.

McGregor and Winstead were first romantically linked together in October of previous year as they were photographed kissing during a dinner date in London.

According to a new report, Ewan McGregor is in final negotiations for the role of Black Mask, who has historically been a Batman villain but is being utilized for Birds of Prey.

Black Mask made his first appearance in Batman issue #386 back in August 1985.

Weinstein accused of sexually assaulting 16-year-old
When Weinstein heard that she was in town, he suggested that they meet because he "might have some ideas" to help. The woman did not delete any information and instead asked a lawyer for advice, prosecutors said.

Birds of Prey, directed by Cathy Yan, sees Robbie reprising her Harley Quinn role after Suicide Squad. He's the criminal alias of Roman Sionis, who murdered his wealthy, status-obsessed parents to take control of the family corporation, then lost everything when he proved to be a bad businessman.

The baddie's real-life name in the comics is Roman Sionis whose origin story involves being born to rich and self-absorbed parents who cared more about their social status in Gotham City than their own son. Ever since wrapping up the Star Wars prequel trilogy with Revenge of the Sith in 2005, the actor has largely avoided franchises. And he's said he'd be happy to do an Obi-Wan standalone, but Disney seems to have other ideas about that.

There's been a lot of movement on Warner Bros.' DC flick Birds of Prey over the last month or so. At the time, no meeting had taken place, but the studio was eager to work with him again after collaborating on "Doctor Sleep", the sequel to "The Shining", where he plays an older version of Danny Torrance. Christina Hodson penned the screenplay. It will precede Wonder Woman 1984, which was recently delayed to June 5, 2020.
