Well, we knew it was coming. Unless you didn’t. In which case, spoilers for Arrow below.
Ever since [SPOILER!] Sara Lance was killed in the Arrow season premiere, fans have been waiting for the new Black Canary to be revealed. Enter sister Laurel, played by Katie Cassidy. Now it’s [SPOILER!] comic book canon that Laurel Lance become Black Canary, plus Laurel’s been on sort of a rage-a-thon since her sister’s murder. It’s no surprise that Laurel will soon be covered in black leather and fighting crime, just like her dearly departed sister.
The CW released its first photos of Katie Cassidy as Black Canary today and I loved Sara, but I have to admit – they look pretty badass. I don’t know if Laurel will be able to live up to Sara, though.
According to the CW, the new Black Canary will make her debut in the tenth episode of the season, “Left Behind.”
What do you think of Laurel as Black Canary?
