Much like Victor Zsasz, Birds of Prey villain Black Mask (played by Ewan McGregor in last year’s movie) is making his presence known on The CW’s series “Batwoman,” with the announcement today that Peter Outerbridge (Saw VI) has been cast to play the DC character.
Additionally, we’ve got our first look at Outerbridge in the mask today, seen above.
Deadline details, “Roman Sionis will be a major part of the storyline through the rest of [Season 2]. By day, Roman is a pragmatic and charismatic CEO who plays the “white knight” against Gotham’s corrupt systems. As Black Mask, an evil mastermind with a deep hatred of The Crows and masked vigilantes, he is willing to tear down Gotham to enact his revenge.”
Javicia Leslie stars as Batwoman in the current second season of the series.
New episodes of “Batwoman” air Sundays, available for free streaming next day via The CW.
