Arrow News: Arrow Gets His Canary

arrow-tv Arrow Season 2 casts Black Canary (and no, it’s not Katie Cassidey/Laurel Lance)…

CW’s Arrow has not been afraid to break with DC lore in its storyline, and just as they’ve kept us guessing over Speedy / Red Arrow’s possible destiny, Caity Lotz has been cast in Arrow Season 2 as original Black Canary, aka Dinah Drake. Again, this is a curve ball to all those who thought on/off love interest Laurel Lance, played by Katie Cassidy, would be cast in the role (didn’t help that she came flat-out in Oct and stated the role was hers herself!)

In the comics, Drake – called Dinah Drake Lance – was a supporting character who became a member of the Justice Society of America, and is the mother of the current Black Canary, Dinah Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy’s character). But in the TV version, we’ve already seen Laurel’s mother, and she’s anything but a superhero – totally strung out on find her dead daughter (Laurel’s sister), in a very obsessive, losing grip on reality kind of way… although we wouldn’t put it past the writers to bring her back from the dead!

Hey – as he’s not called Green Arrow, maybe she should just be ‘Canary’?!?
