The next issue of Entertainment Weekly will be on store shelves tomorrow, celebrating all things Comic Con, and it will feature some pretty cool Arrow scoops - including a first official look at actress Juliana Harkavy in costume as the new Black Canary.
The trade has released the image online, and we've got to admit we're loving what we see...
"Last season, she wasn’t a full fledged superhero, you could say," executive producer Wendy Mericle told Entertainment Weekly in an interview posted earlier today. "She was, she had this power, she had this ability, she was part of the team, but really what this costume signifies more than anything is that she is now a full-fledged member of the team. She was before. But she’s now owning it in a different way. We had talked about having the costume at various points last season and it never felt right. It felt that we wanted to save it for a special occasion, and the premiere seemed like a really good place to do it. She needs something tactical. She has this meta power, but she also has the bo staff, so we just felt it was right for her to have something that was definitely more than a nod to the DCU character, but also something that was distinctive from what we’ve seen before. This really fits the bill. Maya Mani, as usual, did an amazing job with it. My favorite part is actually the subtle hint of the gold and yellow lines in it."
Starring Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Rick Gonzalez, Echo Kellum, Juliana Harkavy, Paul Blackthorne and Manu Bennett, Arrow returns fir its sixth season beginning Thursday, October 12th at 9pm.
