Arrowverse’s Katie Cassidy has been chatting about which other DC Comics characters she’d like to play in the DC Universe, and she revealed that she’d love to play Catwoman or the Joker. She revealed this during a recent interview with Geek Show House.
Katie Cassidy played Laurel Lance, a.k.a. Black Canary on The CW show Arrow. She left the show as a series regular after her character was killed off in Season 4. However, she then went on to guest star in The Flash series as the metahuman Black Siren. That was Laurel Lance’s Earth-2 doppelgänger.
She eventually returned to Arrow as a series regular in Season 6 and also appeared in The CW’s crossover episodes. She also made her directorial debut in Arrow Season 8. Cassidy helmed the episode Leap Of Faith, and it sounds like she still wants to be part of the DC Universe moving forward.
Katie Cassidy wants to play Catwoman or the Joker in the DC Universe
Here’s what she told Geek House Show during a recent interview in which they discussed her time on the DC Comics CW shows and her future with the DC Universe:
I’ve always been a big fan. Michelle Pfeiffer killed it as Catwoman. I also happen to be a big fan of cats.
Cassidy then went on to add that she would also love to play a female version of the Joker at some point in the future. She said: “I think I’d make a pretty good Joker.”
