~ Black Mask giving a speech to his followers.

Roman Sionis (better known under the alias Black Mask) is the main antagonist of the 2020 DC Extended Universe film Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn).

He is a powerful Gotham City crime lord who serves as the owner of his night club, Black Mask Club, as well as being the boss of Victor Zsasz.

He is also The Joker's rival in the underworld of Gotham. When Black Mask places a hit on Cassandra Cain, all Gothamites who work for him start looking for her, leading Harley Quinn and her henchwomen, the Birds of Prey to come to Cassandra's help (because Cassandra herself is one of Harley's minions) and do everything possible to bring down Sionis and his organization.

He was portrayed by Ewan McGregor, who also portrayed Patrick McKenna in Angels and Demons, Mark Renton in Trainspotting, and John Bishop in Jane Got a Gun.

Trivia

  • Black Mask is, so far, not only one of the few characters in the DC Extended Universe to be LGBT, but the first incarnation of Black Mask to be so. In the mainstream comic book continuity, Black Mask has always been depicted as straight.
  • Unlike recent DCEU antagonists, Ewan McGregor's performance as Black Mask was praised by film critics, much like Margot Robbie’s reprisal as Harley Quinn.
  • A reference to Black Mask was previously seen in Justice League, as a building of Janus Cosmetics can be seen as part of Gotham City's skyline.
  • This is the first live-action appearance of Roman Sionis, and the second live-action appearance of someone using the Black Mask identity. Black Mask had appeared in the first season of Gotham, although the identity of the character was Roman's father, Richard Sionis.
  • Roman is the first main antagonist in a DC Extended Universe film to not have any superpowers or cosmic abilities. Additionally, his motives are much lower scale compared to previous main villains as he only wants to rule Gotham City.
