Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn was the comic book movie highlight of last year. One of the fan favorite characters was Jurnee Smollett’s Dinah Lance, aka Black Canary. Is the actress now teasing a team-up project with Black Canary and Green Arrow?
The actress has recently posted a photo and quote of the classic DC Comics Green Arrow tale, “The Longbow Hunters”, that she is currently reading.
Jurnee Smollett Stirs The Pot
Many fans are still rooting for a Black Canary HBO Max series, as Warner Bros. stated that they are planning to make at least one spin-off project for HBO Max of every of their major DC theatrical releases. Smollett’s post now has ignited some speculation that she might actually be teasing a Black Canary and Green Arrow led spin-off project.
One thing that speaks against it, is the fact that Green Arrow hasn’t been introduced in the DCEU yet and he also wasn’t mentioned by Black Canary. While it’s not impossible that a Black Canary project for HBO Max is in development, it seems unlikely that it will feature Green Arrow, as one might think they would like to introduce him in a movie beforehand. Yet the CW Arrow series was very popular, so people definitely know the character.
At this point the most likely situation is, that Jurnee Smollett just wanted to share her love for comic books with her followers, without any teases in mind. Either way fans are still hoping to see Smollett return as Dinah Lance/Black Canary in a future project.
