Birds of Prey looking at Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Cristin Milioti, and more

A new report indicates Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Justina Machado and more have all tested for parts. Though we're still about half a month away from learning which actresses will star alongside Robbie in Birds of Prey, the ones up for parts in the film are all incredible.

I'm a big fan of Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle, A Wrinkle in Time, The Cloverfield Paradox) and have long felt like she should be way more famous than she is, so I'd be thrilled if she got a role in what will probably be one of my favorite DCEU films.

A description for the plot states: After splitting up with The Joker, Harley Quinn and three other female superheroes - Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya - come together to save the life of a little girl (Cassandra Cain) from an evil crime lord. The film will be produced by Sue Kroll under her Kroll & Co Entertainment banner along with Clubhouse Pictures' Bryan Unkeless, and Margot Robbie who is set to reprise her role as Harley Quinn in the film. All of these actresses are promising, although I'll admit that it would be pretty damn cool if Janelle Monae ended up with this role.

Rod Rosenstein denies voicing plot to remove Trump
But let me be clear about this: "Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25thAmendment". One source who was in the meeting confirmed that Rosenstein did make a remark about recording Trump with the use of a wire.

According to insiders, Winstead, Qualley, and Milioti have all either read or tested for Huntress, a character who has been both a superhero and a supervillain in the DC Comics lore. One - Helena Wayne - was the daughter of Batman and Catwoman. There are several different versions of Huntress in the comics. She's also usually delivers a great performance.

I'm super amped to see her on the big screen for two reasons - one, she'll be either the first or one of the first canonically queer superheroes on the big screen, and two there's a chance that she'll be played either by Justina Machado, who is incredible on One Day at a Time, or Roberta Colindrez, who did fantastic work on Vida. Montoya is a great character - she had a reoccurring role on the Batman animated series, and a prominent arc in the fantastic comic series Gotham Central.
