Is this the “Black Canary” and Laurel’s sister in season 2 of ‘Arrow’

Caity-Lotz-death-valley Actress Caity Lotz (Death Valley, Mad Men, & Bring It On: All or Nothing), has been cast in the second season of the CW’s original series Arrow. Producer, Pedowitz, of the show sat down with E Online to discuss Caity’s character.

It is being rumored that Caity will play the role of superhero Black Canary, which would be odd due to the fact that Laurel was the woman that became the Black Canary in the comics. One thing for sure is that Caity Lotz will be playing the role of Laurel’s sister, whom they all thought was dead.

“I hope she brings a certain amount of conflict since she’s playing the sister of Laurel Lance,” he reveals of the new character, who he wouldn’t confirm or deny is actually the Black Canary. “It’s an origin story. I don’t know if this character is the Black Canary or not the Black Canary, so it is in origin story. But remember, Laurel Lance was the Black Canary in the DC universe.”

This is a storyline that we are definitely interested in learning about. Laurel is one of our favorite characters and It’s about time to put a bit more excitement to her storyline. Although the rumor of Caity playing the Black Canary could also explain where Laurel’s sister has been all these years, I myself personally would love to see Felicity as the Black Canary.
