"Arrow" - Enter 'Black Canary'



From VancouverFilm.Net, Sneak Peek actress Juliana Harkavy ("The Walking Dead") as 'Dina Drake' aka costumed female vigilante 'Black Canary', as she appears in "Arrow" - Season 6, debuting October 2017 on The CW:


"She needs something tactical," said "Arrow" executive producer Wendy Mericle, about the look of Black Canary in Season 6.


"She has this 'meta power', but she also has the 'bo staff', so we just felt it was right for her to have something that was definitely more than a nod to the 'DCU' character...


...but also something that was distinctive from what we’ve seen before. 


"This really fits the bill. My favorite part is actually the subtle hint of the gold and yellow lines..."


Black Canary' was created by writer Robert Kanigher and illustrator Carmine Infantino, debuting in "Flash Comics" #86 (August 1947).


One of DC's earliest super-heroines, Black Canary has appeared in many of the company's flagship team-up titles...


...including "Justice Society of America" and "Justice League of America".

Since the late 1960's, the character has frequently been paired with archer superhero 'Green Arrow' professionally and romantically.
