BIRDS OF PREY: WB Reportedly Looking At Ewan McGregor And Sharlto Copley For Black Mask

Though it's not clear if the studio has actually met with either actor yet, Warner Bros. is said to be interested in both Sharlto Copley and Ewan McGregor for the role of Black Mask in Birds of Prey...

It sounds like both Ewan McGregor (Christopher Robin, Trainspotting) and Sharlto Copley (District 9, Elysium) might be in the mix to play the villainous Black Mask in Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey movie.

In an update to today's big Huntress/Black Canary casting news, Variety's Justin Kroll sent out the following Tweet:



Of course, this doesn't mean that Copley or McGregor are actually in contention for the role (at least, not yet), but that could soon change if they're high on the studio's wishlist.

Whoever does wind up donning the skeletal visage of Roman Sionis will join Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary.

Birds of Prey is set to hit theaters on February 7th, 2020.

UPDATE: It seems Iron Man 3 actor Sam Rockwell was offered the role of Black Mask but turned it down.
