"Arrow" - Enter 'Black Canary'

14 July 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From VancouverFilm.Net, Sneak Peek actress Juliana Harkavy ("The Walking Dead") as 'Dina Drake' aka costumed female vigilante 'Black Canary', as she appears in "Arrow" - Season 6, debuting October 2017 on The CW:

"She needs something tactical," said "Arrow" executive producer Wendy Mericle, about the look of Black Canary in Season 6.

"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. My favorite part is actually the subtle hint of the gold and yellow lines..."

Black Canary' was created by writer Robert Kanigher and illustrator Carmine Infantino, debuting in "Flash Comics" #86 (August 1947).

One of DC's earliest super-heroines, Black Canary has appeared in many of the company's flagship team-up titles. »

John Ostrander: Talking The Talk

12 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

So you had a story idea and you’ve worked it up into a plot. The characters are defined, you know who is doing what, the twists and turns and even the theme.

Now you have to put words into everyone’s mouths or, more precisely, into their word balloons. For some would-be writers, that’s where the wheels come off. How do you write dialogue? More importantly, how do you write good dialogue?

Let’s start with a basic: all dialogue is action. No one just speaks: they cajole, they explain, they confirm, they deny, they confront, they exalt, they exult, they attack, they defend, they lie and so on.  It is an active transitive verb. When a character speaks, they are doing something or attempting to do something. What’s important is not what the character is saying but what the character is doing or trying to do when they speak. »

In development since 2007, there is still studio interest in a big screen live-action feature based on DC Comics' "Metal Men", starring the synthetic, malleable  robots 'Gold', 'Iron', 'Lead', 'Mercury', 'Tin' and 'Platinum':

"Metal Men" debuted in DC Comics' "Showcase" #37, created by writer Robert Kanigher and illustrator Ross Andru, introduced as advanced artificially intelligent robots, created by scientist 'Dr. William "Will" Magnus'.

The six robots were field leader 'Gold', strong man 'Iron', slow-witted and loyal 'Lead', hot-headed 'Mercury', self-doubting and insecure 'Tin' and 'Platinum', aka 'Tina' who believed she was a real woman and in love with her creator.

Each 'Metal Man' also possessed abilities that reflected the traits of their namesake metal: Gold could stretch his form almost infinitely, Iron was super strong, Lead could block harmful radiation by morphing into thick shields, Mercury could melt and pass through small spaces before reforming and Platinum could stretch, »
