The Birds of Prey movie has cast a key role. The Harley Quinn spinoff at DC Films was spurred by actress/producer Margot Robbie, and it’ll find her Suicide Squad character teaming up with a group of other female DC characters for a new superhero adventure. The film has amassed an impressive ensemble thus far that includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress, Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary, and Rosie Perez as Gotham City Police detective Renee Montoya, with Ewan McGregor recently signing on to play the villain Black Mask. And now the character of Cassandra Cain—who in the comics goes on to become Batgirl—has been cast.

Per Variety, newcomer Ella Jay Basco will fill the role of Cain, who in the comics is the daughter of a pair of assassins and is deprived of speech and human contact as a child as part of her assassin training. At some point down the road she befriends Bruce Wayne and becomes Batgirl, and while Warner Bros. is developing a Batgirl movie, it’s unclear if that film would also star Basco as the moniker has been filled by different characters over the years.
