Many fans knew that someday Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) was going to don the black leather suit to become the Black Canary in The CW’s Arrow. Now The CW has released the first official photos of the Black Canary, and we’re getting her sooner rather than later.

This isn’t the first time we saw Canary in Arrow. If you’ve been watching the show, Sara, Laurel’s sister, was the first Canary. She had the mask, blonde hair, leather jacket and cleavage. However, Laurel’s Canary is more modest.

If you aren’t caught up with Arrow, major spoilers below.

After the death of Sara, Laurel trains with Ted “Wildcat” Grant in order to avenge her sister’s death. Since it took Oliver Queen and Sara many years to hone their skills and to become crime fighters, it was expected that Laurel would have to train for a while as well. As it turns out, she’ll be becoming a crime fighter sooner. Will Laurel get her ass kicked like last time, or will she triumph? If she does triumph, this would make one believe that Ted, a former boxing champion, is a better teacher than the League of Assassins.

Laurel is a more active character now, which is a good thing, and she’ll definitely become her own since Oliver refused to teach her how to fight. She may also get mad at Roy Harper if she finds out that he has been dreaming about being Sara’s killer. (Was it all a dream, or did he actually commit the murder?)

We received news from the CW that the name of Cassidy’s crime fighter is Black Canary. On the show, Sara’s persona was simply known as Canary. She’s finally getting her proper comic book name, something the Arrow hasn’t earned yet with “Green Arrow.”

What do you think of the outfit?

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
