The CW's Arrow Casts Caity Lotz as Its Black Canary

Ever since The CW's Arrow began last year, fans have wondered when series regular Katie Cassidy, who plays Laurel Lance, would make the transition to "Black Canary" (her longtime superhero alias in the source material.) Well, good news and bad news gang, which do you want first?

Good news: According to The Wrap, Black Canary will be joining season 2 of Arrow! Bad news: It won't be Laurel Lance.

Instead, the show's producers have decided on bringing in the "golden age" version of the character and have cast The Pact's Caity Lotz as Dinah Drake.

The character will start the season as recurring one but will eventually make the transition to series regular as she is being groomed to become another love interest for Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen. No word on whether the character will feature her trademark high-pitched scream, but given the "no super powers" rule of the world it seems unlikely.

The inclusion of Dinah Drake makes the rumors that series regular Colton Haynes started a few months ago even more interesting, when he teased that "they might form a team."

What do you think of Lotz's casting in the role? Sound off below!
