Caity Lotz Cast as The Black Canary on Arrow

by at . Comments

Another key character has been added to Arrow Season 2.

Following the casting of Summer Glau as Isobel Rochev, The Wrap now confirms that Caity Lotz (Mad Men, The Pact) has landed the integral role of The Black Canary.

A memorable character from the comic book franchise, The Black Canary is the alter-ego of Dinah Drake. In some versions of the mythology, she is a martial arts expert with a primal scream that actually helps subdue criminals.

The crime-fighter will likely become a love interest for Stephen Amell's hooded vigilante, while Lotz could eventually be upped to series regular.

UPDATE: The CW President has now given more clues about this casting.

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.

Spindae: Please don't speak for all of us. Many of us absolutely did NOT want Laurel to be Black Canary.

hmmm interesting! ! ! We all wanted Laurel to go Black Canary, but let's see. Maybe after her death Laurel will take her place. I always thought Laurel's sister will return as B.Canary. But I believe the writers will have a proper resolution for it.
