Ewan McGregor to play villain Black Mask in 'Birds of Prey'.

Ewan McGregor has been set to play the role of the villain, Black Mask, in the forthcoming 'Birds of Prey' movie.

Black Mask is a Gotham City mob boss who leads the False Face Society gang and blames others for his shortcomings. In the comics, Black Mask is the criminal alias of Roman Sionis, a brutally sadistic kingpin with an ebony black mask which was burned onto his face. He has a very similar background to Gotham’s Batman, born into a wealthy Gotham City family but instead of inheriting the family business when his parents were murdered in a back alley, Roman killed his parents because they didn't approve of his girlfriend at the time.

Margot Robbie reprises her role as Harley Quinn in the spin-off. Other cast members include Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, and Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya.
