‘Birds Of Prey’s Jurnee Smollett-Bell Announces She’d Represent ‘Black Canary’ Again

The new genre actress Jurnee Smollet-Bell spoke to Entertainment Weekly within ‘Women Who Kick Ass’ panel, and said that she would play the role, ‘Black Canary’ in the sequel of ‘Birds Of Prey’ one more time.

The ‘Black Canary’ is the superheroine appearing in American comic books, and its cinematic debut was made by Smollett-Bell.

Although it has not been confirmed that any sequels yet, the ‘Lovecraft Country’ actress said during the interview:

“It’s no secret how much I loved playing Black Canary, and so honored to take on that mantle. I would absolutely do it again if given a chance.”

Smollett-Bell also stated that she was waiting for people like actress Margot Robbie, and director of the ‘Birds of Prey’ director Cathy Yan to work with.

The actress, who represented ‘Jess Merriweather’ in ‘Friday Night Light,’ also highlighted that she would like to be a part of female and Black-centered stories. She used the following statement:

“It hasn’t been until now, having people like Misha Green, or Jordan Peele, who have stepped into this genre and had these radical reimaginings of centering our stories within the genre. It takes a Margot Robbie and a Cathy Yan, being like, ‘We want an all-girl gang, and yo, let’s just ask the person we think that’s the best for the project.’ Times are changing. It’s exciting because, for an artist like myself, I get so bored.”
