Arrow Casts Caity Lotz as...The Black Canary?! (UPDATED)

Arrow Casts Caity Lotz as...The Black Canary?!

Doesn't that TV show already have one of those?



Source: The Wrap

The Wrap is reporting that Caity Lotz (The Pact) will be joining Arrow's cast as the Black Canary, a recurring role and love interest for Oliver in the CW's show's second season.  While some outlets are reporting that Lotz's character will be named Dinah Drake, the Wrap's report is a bit unclear on that tidbit.

Of course, fans of the show know that Arrow already has a potential Black Canary: Laurel "Dinah" Lance, played by female lead Katie Cassady.  There's been numerous easter eggs linking Laurel to Black Canary, including the character's love of sushi, her past use of fishnets and martial arts skills.  Laurel's mother, Dinah Lance, was played by Alex Kingston.

So what's exactly going on here?  Early theories range from Arrow making moves to cut Cassady's character out entirely (unlikely) to Lotz playing a younger version of Laurel's mother in flashbacks (also unlikely).  I personally have no clue what's going on, but I'm sure the Arrow showrunners will make things clearer soon.  One things for certain, it would be weird to have three characters named Dinah running around on the show.

I'm hoping this is a sign that Katie Cassady is on the way out. She's the weak link in the show IMO: no charisma and no chemistry with Stephen Amell.

Yeah that would be weird having 3 characters with the same uncommon first name. Unless maybe it's revealed the current Dinah is an imposter or something.

This pic of the new chick totally looks like Black Canary, though.

Is she playing the supposedly-dead Drake sister?

I never saw it, it's just that most shows don't make it past 1 season these days.

I'm glad to read Caity Lotz will be playing another love interest for Ollie.

That means another season of Ollie stringing Laurel along and dragging her in the dirt....?

Trying to convince my wife to watch Arrow with me just got a little harder...

"But, honey, it's also a romance... well.... sort of.... a guy romance fantasy... um.... I swear to you that when Ollie cheats on Laurel, it's never serious.... in his heart he loves her truly and he always comes back again.... er.... for sex.... and to dump her again right after.... oh, dammit...."

Also Guggenheim elaborate that she's not Black Canary but she does have some ties into what eventually makes Dinah become Canary.

This show was soooo bad for the first 6-10 episodes.. or however long it was until the winter break.

But when it came back in January or whenever, it was much improved and kept getting better as the season progressed. I'm very glad. The finale was good, if not a bit hokey..

I haven't kept up with the new info, though. So this chick ISN'T black canary?

Either way, I never really got the impression that they were going to go down that route with Laurel in the show, and they don't even call her Dinah, so it seemed odd that they would plan for her to still become Black Canary at some point.

I'm ok with a new character being Black Canary, or whatever.
