Laurel Lance will lead a Birds Of Prey inspired episode on Arrow before season 7 ends, according to TV Line.
In an interview with TV Line, Arrow showrunner Beth Schwartz revealed that Katie Cassidy’s character Laurel Lance will be leading an episode inspired in the famous DC all-female team Birds Of Prey:
“We are doing a Birds of Prey-inspired episode, that Laurel (played by Katie Cassidy) will be involved with.”
Schwartz also mentioned that the episode will continue the character arc shown by Lance throughout the series and whether she redeems herself or keeps being evil:
“We’ll get to see what happens in her overall redemption arc — whether she really did turn over a new leaf, or is she still the same evil Black Siren we met last season.”
Unfortunately, Schwartz didn’t reveal the full line-up of the Arrowverse version of the team. What we know for sure is that we’ll see Black Siren as opposed to what the original Birds Of Prey shows us with Black Canary. Other initial characters in the team included Barbara Gordon’s Batgirl, which we doubt will make an appearance due to the fact that there’s already Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane/Batwoman in the Arrowverse, and Helena Bertinelli’s Huntress played by actress Jessica De Gouw, who has more chances to pop-up in the episode.
You might also remember that Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), a live-action film starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Huntress and Jurnee Smollett-Bell as Black Canary is currently under development and will release on 2020. In this case, the villains will be Black Mask interpreted by Ewan McGregor and Victor Zsasz played by Chris Messina.
