The actress will start out as a recurring character, with the potential to become a series regular in the future. The move marks a departure from the original comic book series, since Laurel Lance, the character portrayed by Katie Cassidy in the CW Network series, originally turns into The Black Canary. Instead, they are turning to the "Golden Age" version of the character named Dinah Drake. It isn't known when the character will debut this coming season.
We reported last week that Summer Glau has joined the cast as Isabel Rochev, an executive who has plans to take over Oliver Queen's Queen Enterprises. The Season 2 Premiere is slated to air Wednesday, October 9 on The CW Network.
Caity Lotz most recently starred in The Pact and she will next be seen this fall in Battle of the Year. On the small screen, she previously starred in the MTV series Death Valley.
