We got the release date a few days back and had heard about actresses in the running for the roles of Huntress, Black Canary and Montoya and now we have confirmation that two of those actresses are officially part of the DC Cinematic universe.

News has just broke tonight that Scott Pilgrim and 10 Cloverfield Lane star Mary Elizabeth Winstead will play Huntress while Underground actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell is our new Black Canary.

According to the official news they will team up with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and an as yet uncast Renee Montoya to protect a Gotham without Batman again a vicious crimelord – rumoured to be Black Mask who we’re hearing could be played by Ewan McGregor or Sharlto Copely.

Rene Montoya has yet to be cast with One Day at a Time‘s Justina Machado and Vida‘s Roberta Colindrez in the running.

Cathy Yan is directing the movie which is set for release on February 7th, 2020.

UPDATED: We had to feature these very cool poster from Kushal on Twitter:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
