Well, now we know who DC Entertainment’s Birds of Prey will be facing in the 2020 movie of the same name: Ewan McGregor as crime boss Black Mask. While the face of the one-time Obi-Wan Kenobi might be familiar to moviegoers, the character he’s playing might not.
Black Mask was created in 1985 by Doug Moench and Tom Mandrake for Batman No. 386, and has made appearances across the Batman line in the decades since, including Detective Comics, Nightwing and Catwoman; with his black skull-like mask and tendency towards cruel and unusual tortures for his foes, he’s a distinctive and memorable threat primed for big-screen stardom — as long as he survives his first run-in with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, of course.
