For the most part, much of what we've seen on Arrow has been accurate in the sense that many of the show's recurring characters are familiar to those of us who have read the comics. There are, however, many differences between what we see on the show and what we've read in the comics, and the latest casting choice is another example of that.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Dinah Lance will be coming to the CW's Arrow. "Dinah" will be played by actress Alex Kingston who you may recognize from ER and Doctor Who. "Dinah" will be Laurel's mother and Detective Quentin's ex-wife. So why will she be returning to Starling City, and why did she leave in the first place? And will she play an older, more mature Black Canary?
Later this season Dinah will return to Starling City to make amends with her family that she abandoned years earlier following the tragic death of her daughter aboard Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) yacht.
It will be interesting to see how things unfold on the show and what extent and role that the actress will play. What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing how things unfold? Do you think she will make an appearance as Black Canary? Have you been watching?
