Is This Who Caity Lotz Is Playing on The CW’s Arrow–Flash Spin-Off?

Posted: April 19, 2015 in Review

Outside of its ever-growing cast, little is known about The CW’s in-development spin-off of Arrow and The Flash—not even its title—but the biggest mystery plaguing diehard fans is exactly who Caity Lotz will be playing.Lotz originally played Sara Lance, a.k.a Canary, on Arrow until Malcolm Merlin (via Thea Queen) killed her in the series’ Season 3 premiere. Now, new paparazzi reports and fan photographs suggest Lotz might be taking on a Canary role once again. Lotz was recently spotted filming with Arrow’s Stephen Amell, The Flash’s Grant Gustin, and her spin-off co-stars Wentworth Miller, Victor Garber, and Arthur Darvill. The twist:

Lotz was allegedly dressed all in white. And though her role remains unconfirmed, these reports seemingly validate the popular fan theory that Lotz will be playing the White Canary.

The White Canary was a minor, and originally Asian, member of the Birds of Prey from 2010 to 2011. Resurrecting Sara only to have her become a villain— and one destined to be pit against her sister Laurel, the new Black Canary—seems like a good way to bring Lotz back into the Arrow–Flash fold after her shocking death on Arrow.

As for how Sara could be brought back to life, all signs point to the Lazarus Pit, particularly since it could help explain Sara’s transformation into a villain or antihero. According to DC mythology, the Lazarus Pit possesses the power to resurrect the dead, but its restorative waters can often lead to madness. So whether it’s Oliver Queen or Nyssa al Ghul who eventually places Sara’s corpse into the Pit, we doubt it will result in the happy reunion they were hoping for.

What do you think of Lotz potentially becoming the White Canary?
