‘Arrow’: Katie Cassidy’s Black Canary Set to Return to CW’s DC Universe

Death can’t keep Black Canary down.

Katie Cassidy has signed a deal with Warner Bros. to appear across the CW’s DC Comics-based television shows, which includes “Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash” and “Arrow.” Wendy Mericle, executive producer of “Arrow,” announced the news at Comic-Con Saturday.

“Katie Cassidy will not be disappearing from this universe,” Mericle said.

Cassidy’s deal follows similar deals announced earlier this year for Wentworth Miller and John Barrowman.

Cassidy will be returning to the broader CW-DC universe despite the fact that her character died last season. Miller’s character was also killed off in the first season of “Legends of Tomorrow.”

A trailer for the upcoming fifth season of “Arrow” also provided a look at the series’ new main villain, who Guggenheim said is a new character named Prometheus. Guggenheim noted that the character is not the same one created by Grant Morrison for DC Comics, but is instead a brand new antagonist created for the show.

Guggenheim added that the character “fits in the theme of legacy this year that’s going to be driving all of our characters.”
