Arrow's New Black Canary Costume Revealed
The female superhero gets a new costume in season six!
Black Canary's Season Six Look Unveiled!
Having made her debut last season, Arrow‘s Juliana Harkavy is officially suiting up as the new Black Canary when season six debuts later this year. EW has just revealed a first look at the new Black Canary costume design! The suit was designed by Maya Mani. Harkavy tells the outlet, confirming that her new Black Canary will make her costumed debut in the season six opener saying, “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.”
