Star Jurnee Smollett made her hero debut in Birds of Prey (Warner Bros.) where she portrayed Black Canary. Before she took on the role, she turned to those who joined comic movies, which includes MCU actor Samuel L. Jackson.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Smollett said, “I just remember I called a bunch of my mentors who had more experience in the comic book world. Like Samuel L. Jackson, I remember calling him and being like, ‘OK, so like, yo, what do I do? Is there a way in which I should approach this any differently than how I would approach any other character? I always do so much research of the world.’ And he said, ‘Baby, just go and piss on your territory.'”
This previous year came as a report that a spinoff centered on Black Canary was underway.
