Meanwhile, speaking to E! Online, executive producer Marc Guggenheim has revealed that Arrow will explore Sara Lance’s (Caity Lotz) resurrection as the White Canary prior to her starring role in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow:
“The White Canary will be launched in the first few episodes of Arrow. 4×08, our typical crossover episode, will be doing a lot of heavy-lifting in terms of getting the Legends of Tomorrow characters set up and also seeing where they are with relation to The Flash. It’s a big episode.”
