We still don't know if Cassidy will be playing "Black Canary" or just Dinah Lance, but fans will surely notice they have gone with a significantly different look for the character hair wise. Gone are Lance's distinctive blond locks from the comics..

alucard365 - 3/25/2012, 11:49 AM
WTF happen to her blonde hair ! ! ! !
LMFA0 - 3/25/2012, 11:51 AM
If it is anything like smallville, she uses her brown hair as her secret identity and has blonde hair only as black canary

@LMFAO

I was just about to say that

No fishnets?
JohnWilbanks - 3/25/2012, 11:56 AM
Actually she is not a natural blonde. She used to wear a blonde wig in costume, but has since bleached it blonde...
Zell9 - 3/25/2012, 12:27 PM
exactly in the comics Dinah Lance was a natural brunette but then bleached it blonde cuz that wig gets itchy and my guess is she won't have the fishnets till later when her sonic powers develop

WARNING! DROOLING ZONE AHEAD!


headlopper - 3/25/2012, 12:36 PM
^^^Put THAT in the show, I'll watch it.^^^
CaptainAmerica31 - 3/25/2012, 12:42 PM
CW always hires good looking people to be in there shows, especially the hot blondes!
tazmaniak - 3/25/2012, 12:46 PM
Anyone think it's odd that they cast 2 blond actors(Jamey Sheridan and Susanna Thompson) as Robert and Moira, but 2 brunette actors(Stephen Amell and Willa Holland) as their children, Oliver and Thea?
tweeeeenkies3 - 3/25/2012, 12:58 PM
I truly hope she gets to be badass, and become Black Canary!

Maybe she will be wearing a wig as her identity?
I don't know...But, I agree @headlopper...That is needed!

Black Canary is the BEST!
gandalf550 - 3/25/2012, 1:35 PM
Definitely has to become Black Canary in the series. Otherwise, liking the look so far, but they should have kept her blonde hair color the same (about my only issue with the series thus far). Hope it turns out great!

Nice. I'm pleased to see that this show is coming together, and featuring some iconic DC characters. Now when does this premiere?
BatSlam - 3/25/2012, 1:40 PM
she doesn't look like dinah. you silly show you.
AlexDeLarge87 - 3/25/2012, 2:07 PM
Katie looks fine but where´s Mr. Queen´s blond hair and goatee?

I wish they would have make this a movie instead and cast Charlie Hunnam as Ollie. I mean that would have been perfect casting.
TheUnknown - 3/25/2012, 2:15 PM
bloody hell, I want that coat
CCB1984 - 3/25/2012, 2:35 PM
I don't often complain about the looks of the character compared to the actors..but both Black Canary and Green Arrow are have been universally blond heroes...CW wouldn't have hired a ginger for Clark Kent I guess it shows the priority for the show and I assume this show will end up lasting only slightly longer than the Wonder Woman reboot
AC1 - 3/25/2012, 2:36 PM
shit show, shit channel
mgeoff88 - 3/25/2012, 3:38 PM
If I'm not mistaken, she's supposed to be lawyer on this show. I'm glad Dinah doesn't have short hair like on Smallville.

And I wonder if they are trying to tease the she could become Black Canary? She has brown hair with blonde streaks. I really hope she eventually becomes Black Canary.
headlopper - 3/25/2012, 3:44 PM
@tweeeeenkies3-Hey Dude! How are ya?

Jim Lee pencil's for 'All-Star Batman & Robin the Boy Wonder' . Really sexy rendition!
CherryBomb - 3/25/2012, 4:31 PM
Awesome!
Katie Cassidy is gonna make a great Dinah, I love it when she plays the fiesty, strong roles. She's gonna kick ass.



Dinah started off as a brunette in the comics. So if they're going about it through continuity then they are spot on.

CW did say that she won't start off as Black Canary in the series, she's just going to be a charity worker with a secret.
SamWinchester - 3/25/2012, 4:53 PM
RUBY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
tweeeeenkies3 - 3/25/2012, 6:53 PM
@headlopper...I am great!

And, the art is very great! Black Canary is the BEST!

Did you catch the new Once Upon a Time?
Pokeysteve - 3/25/2012, 8:26 PM
"...actress who will play a variation on Black Canary in the CW show."

^^^ Why this show will fail soooo hard.
Dmon - 3/25/2012, 8:41 PM
LOL These ppl pretending to be Black Canary fans whining about her hair. HEY DUMB ASSES SHE WEARS A WIG AND GOES FROM BROWN TO BLONDE IN THE COMICS IT IS PART OF HER DISGUISE. LIKE CLARK KENTS GLASSES.

I am actually bigger fan of Black Canary then Green Arrow so I really hope we see BC and not just Dinah.
mgeoff88 - 3/25/2012, 9:09 PM
@CherryBomb Wait, she's a charity worker? Heh, I don't know where I got lawyer from. With all these different shows, it's hard to keep track sometimes. :P

Yah, I have no doubt that she'll make a great Dinah. I also have no doubt that she'll rock the shit out of the Black Canary costume. ;P
mgeoff88 - 3/25/2012, 9:19 PM
@Dmon Except the way she disguises herself has changed a couple of times in the comics.

No one's really pretending to be a Black Canary fan, some people just may know her more from Smallville than the actual comics. I'm one of those people.

And if she doesn't ever become Black Canary on this series, I would be very surprised. :)
Dmon - 3/25/2012, 9:30 PM
@mgeoff88 No pretty much she has always worn a wig since her creation till she started bleaching it.
EarOne - 3/25/2012, 10:13 PM
well the blonde's supposed to be a wig ain't it?? she's HOT though. i LLLIIIIKE....
AUSSYACE - 3/25/2012, 11:42 PM
A Zillion times Hotter than Emma Stone...
Yasn7 - 3/26/2012, 1:08 AM
still remember her as ruby(1) from supernatural. So hot. Hope this show is good. Please dont follow in the ways of Smallville
headlopper - 3/26/2012, 12:56 PM
@tweeeeenkies3- Yeah. That was one of my favorite episodes to date. I was wondering what fairly tale that guy was from. The Mad Hatter. Wow ! What a tragic story!
mgeoff88 - 3/26/2012, 1:54 PM
@Dmon Yah, I've seen some people mention that. I think they'll have her wear a wig on the show, you know, when she suits up as BC(hopefully). It's much more practical going with the wig.

And with the ends of her hair already being blonde, it makes the most sense they'll go that route.
