It looks like Warner Bros. and director Cathy Yan are finally beginning to narrow down casting for the main roles in the Birds of Prey movie, with several actresses emerging as potential front-runners to play Huntress, Black Canary, and Renee Montoya.

Though things still seem to be at the testing stage, both THR  and Deadline are reporting that Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Justina Machado and others are in the mix for the lead roles.

Apparently, Mbatha-Raw (Belle) and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Undergroud) have read for Black Canary, while Machado (One Day at a Time) and Roberta Colindrez (I Love Dick) tested for Renee Montoya.

In the running for Huntress are Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Winstead (10 Cloverfield Lane, Fargo), Cristin Milioti (Black Mirror, How I Met Your Mother), and Sofia Boutella (The Mummy).

The reports also seem to confirm that Cassie Cain will be on the team, with Black Mask as the main villain.
