Ewan McGregor has been set to play the role of the villain, Black Mask, in the forthcoming 'Birds of Prey' movie.
Black Mask is a Gotham City mob boss who leads the False Face Society gang and blames others for his shortcomings. In the comics, Black Mask is the criminal alias of Roman Sionis, a brutally sadistic kingpin with an ebony black mask which was burned onto his face. He has a very similar background to Gotham’s Batman, born into a wealthy Gotham City family but instead of inheriting the family business when his parents were murdered in a back alley, Roman killed his parents because they didn't approve of his girlfriend at the time.
Margot Robbie reprises her role as Harley Quinn in the spin-off. Other cast members include Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya.
