If true and Vanessa Kirby is eyed at to play Black Canary in Birds of Prey, it is time we rally and HARD. She’d make a great Dinah Lance IMO.

Warner Bros. and DC Films’ Birds of Prey film will be directed by Cathy Yan. Robbie discussed what her pitch for the film was back in May.
“I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, ‘Harley needs friends.’ Harley loves interacting with people, so don’t ever make her do a standalone film. She’s got to be with other people, it should be a girl gang. I wasn’t seeing enough girl gangs on screen, especially in the action space. So that was always a big part of it.”
