Arrow's new Black Canary costume is revealed and it looks great!

Arrow fans are in for a treat when the sixth season of the show premieres later this fall. They will be getting an all new Black Canary. Actress Juliana Harkavy who plays Dinah Drake on the show will be suiting up as the hero and thanks to Entertainment Weekly we have our first look at what Black Canary will look like in her new costume, which was designed by Maya Mani.

Speaking to Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle, Entertainment Weekly asked what they show was going for this time around as opposed to the last two incarnations of Black Canary on the show. Mericle responded by stating;
"I can tell you what my favorite parts of it are and what I think it says about the character. Last season, she wasn’t a full fledged superhero, you could say. She was, she had this power, she had this ability, she was part of the team, but really what this costume signifies more than anything is that she is now a full-fledged member of the team. She was before. But she’s now owning it in a different way. 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. Maya Mani, as usual, did an amazing job with it. My favorite part is actually the subtle hint of the gold and yellow lines in it."
Entertainment Weekly also interestingly asked what kind of a hero this Black Canary will be since she was initially driven by revenge.
"She’s fighting for her family now, and that family extends beyond the team. It’s going to grow into something that basically represents the city for her. This is her new home. As someone who basically wandered the earth for revenge, these are higher stakes for her now. Star City and the team mean a lot to her."
It sounds like they may have found their definitive version of the character and she looks great as well. What do you all think of the new Black Canary costume? Are you excited to see Dinah Drake in action next season?

Arrow Season 6 will premiere on the CW on October 12, 2017.
