First Photos of Arrow's Laurel Lance as Black Canary

Now that the original Canary, Sara Lance (spoiler!) has been killed, Arrow's Laurel Lance will take up the mantle of the infamous DC Comics character. They've been teasing the transformation for months, and today, The CW finally released the first pictures of Katie Cassidy in her Black Canary costume:

Katie Cassidy has had the somewhat thankless job of playing arguably Arrow's least interesting character (not to mention romantic rival to fan favorite Felicity), but this transformation may usher in a new era for the character, as becoming a superhero in her own right will open her up to much more compelling plotlines.

 

Laurel is expected to don the Black Canary costume in Arrow's third midseason finale, "Left Behind," which will air Wednesday, December 10 at 8pm on The CW.
