DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..."

Geoff Johns Interview on Arrow: “Everyone Talks About Black Canary A Lot”

Geoff Johns wrote tonight’s episode of Arrow and he’s been making the rounds to media outlets to talk about it. In his interview with TV Guide he discussed a few things of interest for the readers of this blog.

Here he is talking about Laurel’s mom, to be played by actress Alex Kingston, who certainly sounds like the Black Canary:

TV Guide Magazine: And this episode you wrote kind of feels like your Smallville episode “Absolute Justice,” in that you have a ton of DC characters together. 
Johns: Yeah, that’s kind of what I do. I love using as many DC characters as possible, again not just to use them, but for good reason. If you’re using an assassin, you gotta use Deadshot. And having the arrival of Laurel’s mom? As a big fan of Black Canary, I am excited about that.

TV Guide Magazine: Hence the shout-out to the late Sarah Lance’s pet canary in the early part of the episode…
Johns: Yeah, you gotta get it out there. [Laughs]

TV Guide Magazine: Is this a sign of you guys paving the way for a Laurel twist?
Johns: Um…I can only say that everyone talks about Black Canary a lot.

And for those of you who long for an Amazon visit:

TV Guide Magazine: The one I’m hoping to see on Arrow is Donna Troy. I know they can’t use Wonder Woman, but surely Donna Troy could be used on the show. 
Johns: You know what, never say never, man! There’s a lot of characters to be used.

Kingston doesn’t show up for a few episodes shows up tonight!. You can read the full interview here.
