First Look at Katie Cassidy as the Black Canary

Arrow spoilers ahead. Heads up!

Arrow_season_3s

We knew this was coming ever since Sara was killed (maybe by Roy?). Since her sister’s murder, Laurel has been learning to fight, and she’s even tried her hand at fighting crime, albeit unsuccessfully. However, we always knew Laurel was going to become the Black Canary someday. After all, Laurel is the Canary in the comic books, and Arrow‘s show runners promised us they wouldn’t deviate Laurel’s vigilante destiny. Still, we didn’t know when Laurel would officially take to the streets of Starling City. Turns out, her debut as the Canary is coming up rather quickly. Laurel will claim her late sister’s title in the upcoming episode called “Left Behind” (which, according to IMDB, won’t air until next year). The CW has just released photos of Katie Cassidy as the Black Canary. Take a peek, and let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. I just….I’m too attached to Sarah still, and Laurel has a long way to go in a few areas before I’ll be confident in her as Black Canary.

  2. I’m so excited for this! She looks identical to sarah but i’m guessing this is the point? I loved katie cassidy in supernatural so i’m hoping to see more of her sassy badass side now 😀
