Warner Bros.’ upcoming Margot Robbie vehicle Birds Of Prey continues to add some fun names to its roster of superheroic performers this week, with The Wrap reporting that stand-up comic and Netflix darling Ali Wong has been added to its cast of Gotham-based superheroines.
Sadly, Wong won’t be playing a character called Baby Cobra, which feels like it would really fit into the world of The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn. Instead, she’ll be playing fan-favorite character Renee Montoya, a hard-drinking Gotham detective whose career highlights include becoming faceless vigilante The Question, and getting into a long-term relationship with Batwoman Kate Kane.
Wong’s previous acting credits include a role in the recent Wreck-It Ralph 2, plus one of the title parts in Netflix’s upcoming Tuca & Bertie. She’s best known, probably, for her stand-up work, though, which has been featured in two high-profile specials, Baby Cobra and Hard Knock Wife.
