Birds of Prey update: no Batgirl, villain to be Black Mask.

Interesting. No Catwoman, either:  Birds of Prey will feature Harley Quinn, Huntress, Black Canary, and Renee Montoya, who *I* remember as the smart Gotham City cop in The New Batman Adventures but who is apparently the second Question in regular continuity (also, gay**).  According to the the gestalt of the various synopses and revelations out there, these four will be teaming up to save a child Cassandra Cain (who later grows up to be a Batgirl) from the crime boss Black Mask.  (more…)


So apparently they made a Batman spinoff called ‘Birds of Prey.’

As noted here.  Live-action, dated from 2002, and sans an actual Batman: it stars Oracle and Huntress, and apparently Black Canary?  I haven’t watched the pilot yet, although I have it queued up at Amazon even as we speak. This is apparently the Earth-2 Huntress, which has implications that you’ll work out as soon as you watch the pilot (free if you have Prime).  I find myself oddly fascinated by this show, on an quasi-intellectual level.  What did the directors and writers think was important, back then?

Guess I’ll let you know.
