Many Green Arrow fans who’ve been watching the CW‘s Arrow closely have also been wondering if the character Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) would eventually evolve into her comic book alter ego, the Black Canary. It would make sense, considering the name and the relationship both share with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), but apparently the show runners have other plans.
The Wrap is reporting that, although the Black Canary will be appearing in Season 2 of Arrow, Laurel Lance won’t become the Black Canary. This will be the Golden Age Black Canary, Dinah Drake, played by Caity Lotz (The Pact, Bring it On: All of Nothing). She’ll be introduced into the cast slowly, developing into a series regular and an additional romantic interest for Oliver Queen.
Will the Black Canary have her trademark sonic scream powers? Although the series has stayed away from true “Super Powers” so far, I imagine that some technology might make the Black Canary’s super power scream a reality in the CW Arrow Universe.
I can’t wait to see what other heroes and villains will make an appearance on the series, and there’s always the possibility that when enough of those heroes show up on the show, we might get some form of the Justice League. We can only hope.
