Birds of Prey movie will begin production in January 2019 with Kathy Yan to direct the film with the screenplay by Christina Hodson. Kathy is an American and Chinese director famous for directing Groomed (2016) and Dead Pigs (2017). Kristina is an American screenwriter famous for her writing of  Unforgettable (2017) and Bumblebee(December 2018). In April 2018, DC tapped her to write Batgirl movie.
Black Mask first appeared in Batman 386 (August 1985) published by DC Comics written by Doug Moench and drawn by Tim Mandrake. This villain is a criminal mastermind with mind control through his mask.
Interesting choice for a villain in this movie? I was expecting more popular villain. However, it is nice to have a villain we haven’t seen before. We have seen Joker, Bane, Catwoman, and Two-face twice in the  1980’s/1990’s  movies and Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies.
