It's been a long journey for Katie Cassidy to don the Black Canary suit on Arrow, which she will finally do in tonight's midseason premiere after a three-year wait. "I was definitely disappointed, because it was something that I was really looking forward to," Cassidy says of learning it would take Laurel a bit of time to become the Black Canary.
But she also totally agreed with the reason why the producers have held off. "I think it makes complete sense. You can't just overnight become a superhero. It took Oliver five years on the Island and everything he went through."
