DC Universe Fancast: Birds of Prey
Teal Sherer as Barbara Gordon/Oracle
Caterina Murino as Helena Bertinelli/Huntress
Sarah Michelle Gellar as Dinah Lance/Black Canary
with muscles and curves and just a powerhouse, SMG is too thin and wispy to bring the physical presence needed, Dinah can kick your ass without using her powers and she’s devastating, you need that in an actress to make it believeable, I know she was the Slayer and all, but her small stature belied her physical strength which was all magical in origin and had nothing to do with her body, However, I love the others on this one so yay!
I agree with you that Dinah needs to be muscular and believable as one of the most formidable fighters in the DCU: However, I’d point out, there’s no reason SMG couldn’t work out and train to put on the necessary muscle. Actors do that all the time, especially to play an action hero role or a superhero. Henry Cavill had to go through a really rigorous training regimen in order to play Superman. So why couldn’t Sarah do the same to play Black Canary? The fact that she doesn’t look the part right now doesn’t mean that she couldn’t.
For that matter, Caterina Murino would probably need to do a fair bit of training to believably play Helena, as well.
