Micro-News: New BATMAN: ASSAULT ON ARKHAM Still, ARROW Season 3 Tease And Geoff Johns

DC Comics mastermind Geoff Johns recently participated in a Reddit AMA and answered all things New 52. A new still from the DC animated film, Batman: Assault on Arkham has been released. Colton Haynes hints that Caity Lotz' Black Canary will likely return for Arrow season 3.

Over at TV Line, Colton Haynes hinted that just because Caity Lotz' Sara Lance gave her Black Canary leather jacket to her sister, Laurel (Katie Cassidy), that doesn't mean that Lotz' time on the Arrow is done. "I think we’ll definitely see Sara back. I’m not sure how soon, but obviously, when she does, we might see different facets of her," said Haynes. Having surrendered her services to Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) and the League of Assassins, perhaps Sara will cross the line and become a remorseless, stone cold killer? There were shades of that aspect of her character in Arrow season 2, however, Oliver (Stephen Amell) was able to pull her back from the brink. But with Sara now surrounded by other assassins, maybe she crosses over to the dark side?

Here's a new still of the Riddler in Batman: Assault on Arkham, available on iTunes and V-O-D, August 12, 2014. Voicing Edward Nigma will be Matthew Gray Gubler of Criminal Minds fame.

Geoff Johns participated in a Reddit AMA (Ask-Me-Anything) yesterday, but unfortunately, you couldn't truly "ask-him-anything" as he stated he would not be able to reveal anything about the budding DC Cinematic Universe. Still, Johns was more than happy to field questions about comics and tv. Here are a few of the more interesting questions and replies. Check out the FULL REDDIT AMA HERE.

Maybe we can get a sara/nyssa love scene going
batmanvsuperman - 6/25/2014, 4:25 AM
I knew she was coming back first off all she is a good character and they build so much about her how she became the black Carney and her relationship between her and sin and so much more and Marc Guggenheim did say we wont see a character in the first couple episodes and she will not become dark in a interview faith lots said if Sara ever go back to the league she will not have the stomach to kill like she did anymore if anyone become dark it will be laurel

Think it would be different if they made Sara the villain
Kang - 6/25/2014, 4:33 AM
Of course she'll be back, but not as Black Canary.
GL - 6/25/2014, 4:40 AM

Does Black Canary have a sister in the comics? I've never seen her around.

Not one I'm aware of.

The Arrow version seems to be a remnant of the comic version, meaning they took the comic version and broke her down into individual factions to flesh out Arrow version of the Lance/Canary angle.

ex) Comic version Black Canary = Dinah Laurel Lance. Arrow version, Dinah = mom, Laurel = sister.

Holy shit...just keep Caity Lotz as BC full time. She nailed the role.
Cassidy is a bland actress & plays a boring character,totally unnecessary.

HachibiTheMC - 6/25/2014, 7:05 AM
I hope they eventually bring Sara back in whatever incarnation (pipedream version has her coming back w/ meta Canary Cry - maybe another ramification of the STAR Labs explosion).

Lotz is a fairly decent actress, carries the role w/o making it look cheesy. Plus she has amazing breasts and at the very least, they deserve more screen time.

To be honest, if you gave me a 40 minute banner gif of just her chest heaving, I don't think I'd be mad at that...at all

I like how Black Canary looks on this show, I like that she has fighting ability (check out her youtube stuff) and has killer curves.
DCGuy - 6/25/2014, 7:33 AM
I hate caity, I want laurel as BC also Johns is a bad ass! hope he helps more with the DCCU
BlackestKnight - 6/25/2014, 8:05 AM
Johns seems cooler than i thought. He always seemed like he hated everything marvel does.
JorL5150 - 6/25/2014, 8:22 AM
Ill watch anything with tits in it. Does this have tits?
HachibiTheMC - 6/25/2014, 8:22 AM

Thanks for the youtube heads up...

Didn't know she actually had a little fight game!! I think her Parkour is better than Amill's.

Plus she breakdances...which just takes her awesomeness to whole. 'notha. level.
HachibiTheMC - 6/25/2014, 10:01 AM

Anything the rest of the female characters lack, Lotz makes up for...

...in abundance

I was really hoping they would kill Laurel and just keep Sara as Black Canary. Sara is awesome.
