Andew Kreisberg on Laurel’s ‘The Flash’ appearance

by Becky | labels: Interview, News, The Flash

But for fans of The FlashandArrow, and to those that understand the magnitude of Reverse Flash being the big boss villain for Season 1, it can feel as if more crossovers and team-ups are imminent. Kreisberg explained that while they wanted to make sureThe FlashandArrowcould stand on their own, the fun of making a show based on DC comics is to embrace the shared universe.

“Part of the fun of these comic book shows is comic books themselves that when you’re reading a Batman comic and you get to that last page and you turn the page and it’s a splash page of Superman who says, ‘Do you need help?’ You’re like, ‘What?! YES!’ That was so cool and to integrate that and what’s always fun, especially for us, is taking one character from a show and move them to the other because they really get to play different versions of themselves. You get to see a different side of (Det.) Lance and Laurel through the prism of a Flash episode. A more traditional storyline about fathers and daughters, which wouldn’t play well on Arrow but it plays very well on The Flash.” 

“Our tone notes to Laurel Lance was to leave all your troubles behind and have fun on Flash. You get to see her smiling and happy in sort of a different place. I think (actress) Katie (Cassidy) really appreciated that, too. When she saw the trailer, she said, ‘I look like I didn’t have a care in the world.’ Conversely, in the crossover when Caitlin and Cisco go over to Arrow, they’re not fooling around in Starling City. For us, it’s more than just gimmicks and rating stunts, it’s a new way to tell stories and in some cases, like the Laurel Lance story, it’s a way to tell the story that we would love to tell that the one show isn’t designed for but the other one is.”

Katie talking about Arrow

by sheaes | labels: Arrow, Interview, News

Recently, we did some catching up with “Arrow” star Katie Cassidy. On the show, Cassidy plays the role of Laurel Lance — assistant district attorney by day, vigilante Black Canary by night.
During the interview, Cassidy spoke on the development of her character and in doing so, gave us a few spoilers about what’s to come for the next few episodes of season 3.

Q: From Oliver cheating on Laurel with her sister, to joining him in Team Arrow, the two of them have gone through  lot. How would you describe their current relationship? Is there a chance they can rekindle their past romance?
Their current relationship is interesting. Oliver sees Laurel in an entirely different light. He sees that she has what it takes to be a “fighter” or “hero,” but she hasn’t been properly trained. Laurel is also not afraid to stand up to Oliver and stand up for what she believes in. I don’t think that Laurels current mental state is anywhere near a place of romance. That’s the last thing on her mind.

Q: How did you train yourself for your new action scenes as Black Canary?
KC: Marc Guggenheim and I agreed that in order to believe Laurels emotional and psychical transformation from season 2 to 3, my physicality would need a drastic transformation as well. I was more than ready for it. I love a challenge. I try and be as true to a character as possible. I wanted to go through the same training that Laurel would have gone through, so I had fight training, weight training and then yoga. I would say I was training three hours a day, five days a week at one point. On my off time I was watching movies with strong, bad**s female characters – think Linda Hamilton, Hillary Swank, and Angelina Jolie

Q: Without giving too much away, what can we expect from Laurel in future episodes?
KC: Laurel is becoming more badass and less whiny. She’s finally ready for whatever is coming her way. She’s a true fighter and she’ll continue to grow on many levels. Nyssa will play a big factor in that, emotionally and physically.

Black Canary Inspired 34 Year Old Fan to Fight Cancer

by Becky | labels: Arrow, Fan Stories,h_497,w_640/t_mp_quality/foeeqjxuwyjw5lfupayc/superheroes-can-inspire-real-people-read-one-fan-s-amazing-story-on-how-laurel-lance-bl-349831.jpg
Rebecca, like many of us, is an Arrow fan. She’s 34 years old, attends cons, loves superheroes. But she’s faced struggles bigger than many of us can contemplate, and the moment I read her story, I began to wonder if she would allow me to share it here with you. Because what it is, I thought, was an inspiring reminder of how what we see on movies and TV can make us realise what amazing strength we have. Rebecca has that strength, and I’d like to share it with you. But she explains it better than I do. Here’s her story, written in September last year.

Please allow me the chance to explain why this picture is a big deal to me.
This year, at 33-years-old, I was diagnosed with Stage 3, HER2 positive Breast Cancer. While it’s an aggressive form of Cancer, oddly enough, it’s also one of the more treatable ones. But, in order to get rid of it, I had to go through five months of Chemotherapy (seven cycles, which included FEC), a full unilateral mastectomy, and am currently, getting on-going infusions of Herceptin and halfway through thirty sessions of Radiation.
Chemo wasn’t as bad for me as I imagine it is for most people. I didn’t have too much fatigue, though there were days when it was difficult to stay awake and there were days it was difficult to fall (and stay) asleep. I only had one rough weekend of nausea where I didn’t even want to be around food. I had skin issues on my hands and my fingernails got ridiculously brittle, but they were manageable. My toenails also got into some trouble and I had “minor toe surgery”. There were a few weeks I had to quit walking as exercise because my feet turned red and became sore. And, the worst part of each cycle was getting a Neulasta shot that would leave me in twenty-four (sometimes, more) hours of almost incapacitating bone pain.
While I was still able to physically do things like hit the gym, being emotionally strong was trying. I definitely had nights that I cried, out of frustration and fear. Frustration that my body felt like it was broken. And, fear of not knowing what the future held for me. When those moments came, I felt weak and cowardly.
During Chemo, I kept watching Arrow as I have since the Pilot first aired. One week, an episode called “Birds of Prey” aired and it became one of the things (along with my faith, family, friends, and my doctors) that encouraged and inspired me.In it, Laurel Lance struggles with wanting to break her sobriety. Laurel confesses to The Canary that she wants to show her sister (who IS The Canary) and herself that she is strong. The Canary responds, “So, show me.” And, Laurel puts the bottle she was holding…down.

The Psychology of Inspirational Women: Black Canary (Laurel Lance)

by Becky | labels: Arrow


The Background:

Black Canary is the alter ego of Dinah Laurel Lance, and was one of the first DC female superheroes, along with Wonder Woman. Black Canary’s initial name in DC comics was Dinah Drake, and in the later series the Black Canary was based on two separate people – mother (Dinah Drake) and daughter (Dinah Laurel Lance). In the comics Black Canary temporarily worked with the Justice League and also with Oracle (formerly, Batgirl).

In the TV show Arrow, the Black Canary is initially Sara Lance (Laurel’s sister) and later, Laurel Lance herself. Spoilers for Arrow follow!

In the beginning of the series, Laurel Lance was originally Oliver Queen’s girlfriend. The two were starting to get serious when Laurel suggested that they move in together. Oliver, the billionaire playboy with a long history of being arrested (at one point for urinating on a police officer) became scared of such a serious commitment and made a number of bad decisions, including getting another girl pregnant and cheating on Laurel with her sister, Sara. He even invited Sara on his father’s boat, the Queen’s Gambit.

When the boat sank due to a horrendous storm (as well as a premeditated sabotage), Laurel Lance, along with the rest of Starling City, was left to believe that both Oliver and Sara were killed at sea. As painful as it must have been to lose two of the people she loved the most, it must have also been extremely complicated for Laurel to process these feelings due to the circumstances of their deaths. Most accidental and tragic deaths are difficult to bear; however, when people grieve and connect with their natural feelings about the loss, they ultimately recover. When grief is further complicated by feelings of anger and betrayal, it can be a lot more difficult to process the loss, which can potentially make that individual more vulnerable to depression, anxiety, and substance abuse in order to numb the pain.
