There are so many brilliant television shows around at the moment, that it is almost impossible to keep up with all of them but, one of the shows that we make sure we never miss is the hit The CW superhero series Arrow, which is currently on its mid-season break. Arrow season three returns next week and it looks like we are in for a lot of treats for the second half of the season.
One of these treats is the fact that we are finally going to get to see Laurel Lance suiting up as the character Black Canary, something we have been very much looking forward to seeing. Now, actress Katie Cassidy, who plays the role of Laurel in Arrow, has opened up about finally getting to don the Black Canary costume and she is very excited about it.
Cassidy was chatting to the guys over at Comic Book Resources, when she told them, "On January 21, you will see Laurel in the suit and becoming Black Canary -- but just because she suited up doesn't necessarily mean she's good, first of all. But it's part of her journey. In Season Three, she goes from avenging her sister's death, to honoring to her sister, to basically becoming her sister, but her own version of it. And she really steps up to the plate, I think. Now that Oliver's gone, [she] takes the reins and is like, "I got this." She's a strong woman, and I think she's going to kick some butt."
We do not have too much longer to wait now, to see what the second half of Arrow season three has in store for us, as the series will return to The CW on Wednesday, January 21. We cannot wait!
