CW's Arrow Casts Caity Lotz As Black Canary

A new female character has been added to CW's Arrow with Caity Lotz said to be playing Black Canary.

This is according to The Wrap where it's reported that Caity Lotz will start off with a reoccurring role eventually landing a series regular and love interest to Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen.

If you are left scratching your head after this announcement, you are most likely not alone as Arrow already has Katie Cassidy portraying Laurel Lance, with "Dinah Laurel Lance" the Black Canary currently of the DC Comics.

It's quite possible the CW could be going with a totally different and new character for Black Canary in the series.

It's not reported what the actual name of Caity Lotz is in the show, just that she will be playing Black Canary with the character said to be the comic book alter-ego of Dinah Drake.

Actually, Laurel is Dinah's daughter in the comic books.

With Caity Lotz being 26 years young and said to be a love interest of Queen's, her being Laurel's mother has to be ruled out.

Could Lotz simply be playing a new character named Dinah Drake unrelated to Laurel?

Guess we'll find out when Arrow returns this Fall.
