Laurel Lance may be dead on Arrow, but she’s still in the DC TV universe! News has broke that Katie Cassidy will guest star on The Flash in an upcoming episode, but she won’t be playing Black Canary. Thanks to this article on ComicBookResources.com, we now know:
“Arrow” star Katie Cassidy will guest star on an upcoming episode of “The Flash.” But Cassidy won’t be playing the Laurel Lance that “Arrow” viewers have come to know over four seasons; instead, she’ll be playing the Earth-2 version of the character, who goes by the name Black Siren as opposed to Black Canary.
This news is like a breath of fresh air for Laurel fans who are still reeling about her death on this week’s Arrow episode. It’s not the same, I know, but at least we can look forward to seeing a slightly different version of her: the Black Siren! She’ll be Laurel’s doppelganger on Earth-2, and we know Team Flash will definitely be heading back to that alternate universe to face Zoom. What kind of character will this Laurel be? I’m sure we’ll have fun learning about how she’s just like Earth-1’s Laurel and how she differs.
Here is a leaked photo from the set of The Flash showing Black Siren’s look:
This new outfit is so different, yet still appropriate for a badass heroine like Laurel. I approve and look forward to seeing her interact with Team Flash. Will she help them take down Zoom? Time will tell!
