The Birds of Prey movie has found its Renee Montoya!

The Birds of Prey movie has found its Renee Montoya and, we’re not going t lie, it’s an unexpected choice.

Academy Award nominee Rosie Perez has nabbed the role and joins the returning Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and newly cast Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Mary Elizabeth Winstead who have been cast as Black Canary and Huntress.

We had imagined Montoya as a much younger character with Perez being 54, however, given that we have an older Commissioner Gordon in the movies, then it makes sense.

Montoya is a detective working for the Gotham City Police Department. Montoya is openly gay, and during The New 52 comics she took on a costumed identity, becoming the Question. 


In addition, it seems it’s been confirmed that the villain in the movie will indeed be Black Mask.

Cathy Yan is set to direct the movie which swoops in on February 7th, 2020..

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….
