Following the casting announcements of Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, Perez has been revealed as portraying Renee Montoya.
Comic book fans may know her as an openly gay detective working for the Gotham City Police Department. More recently in comics the character of Montaya took on the role of superhero the Question.
Rosie Perez is certainly interesting casting. She wasn’t one of the initial actresses rumored to play Montoya, but I look forward to seeing what the Oscar nominee brings to the role.
Birds of Prey is set for release Feb 7, 2020. The villain of the film, speculated to be Black Mask, could be the next major casting announcement.
