"Arrow": Enter 'Black Canary'

Producers of The CW's "Arrow", based on the DC Comics character 'Green Arrow', have revealed that the comic book character 'Black Canary' will be realized as a live-action character in Season 2 of the Vancouver-lensed TV series, played by one of the main characters on the show, who will have to "...earn her wings..."

The "Arrow" character 'Dinah "Laurel" Lance' (Katie Cassidy) will play 'Black Canary'.

The character debuted in DC's "Flash Comics" #86 (August 1947). but it wasn't until the late 1960's, when she was paired romantically and professionally with 'Green Arrow". 

Stories published during that time depicted Black Canary as a world-class martial artist with a high-pitched 'Canary Cry', that could shatter objects and incapacitate enemies. 

A recent live-action version of 'Black Canary' appeared on The CW's "Smallville" TV series.
