Comic-Con Trailer for ARROW Reveals First Glimpse of Summer Glau and Black Canary

It should come as no surprise that The CW‘s Arrow had a Comic-Con 2013 panel, given that it’s based on DC ComicsGreen Arrow. Having a panel usually means having a trailer, and wow did they ever. So many of the shows’ Comic-Con trailers had little to no new footage, but not our Arrow!

Watch closely and you’ll see upcoming villain Isabel Rochev, played by the beloved-by-us-all Summer Glau (FireflyAlphas, The Cape, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and more), and, as reported by Eonline, the Black Canary, played by Caity Lotz (Death Valley). Which is confusing, at least to the comics readers, as the thought was that Laurel would become the Black Canary.

Showrunner Andrew Kreisberg cryptically explains:  “One of the things we’re doing this season is we’re telling the beginning of the Black Canary story…this is the beginning of that story.” Well okay then…

Other news from the panel included word that Kevin Alejandro (Lafayette’s love Jesus from True Blood) will be playing Sebastian Blood, and Michael Jai White (Gambol from The Dark Knight) will play the Bronze Tiger.

See how much of the new you can spot in the trailer, and enjoy:
