Jurnee Smollett teasing Black Canary return?

February 9th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Oh, could there be something happening with Black Canary in the DCEU?

Actress Jurnee Smollett played Dinah Lance/Black Canary in the Birds of Prey movie and, while the movie wasn’t terribly good and was met with lukewarm reviews, Smollett was one of the elements that did work in the movie and that fans – myself included – regarded as a success along with Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s Huntess and would certainly be open to seeing more of.

And now Smollett has taken to social media and posted an image of herself reading the Green Arrow story The Longbow Hunters graphic novel with the tease: “I’d love to make babies with you Oliver, but I won’t make Orphans.”

Now, obviously this could be nothing but it’s also possible that Smollett knows something that we don’t.

In the comics Oliver Queen AKA Green Arrow is Black Canary’s lover and there’s always online rumours about the character – now stepped down from TV’s Arrowverse where the role was played by Stephen Amell – making his debut in the DCEU.

And the favourite for the role seems to always be Pacific Rim’s Charlie Hunnam. Could we be seeing something coming?

It’s all speculation but I’d certainly be up for seeing a Green Arrow and Black Canary movie on the big screen. What say you all?

Let me know…

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….
