Katie attended MCM Comic Con in Hannover, Germany, this weekend. She had two solo panels (one on each day), and here’s part of the first one:
We don’t have much info about the second panel, but according to a fan, she was flying back to Los Angeles to do some Arrow promo shoots.
And there’s a lot of pictures this time… I’ve added some HQs mixed in with MQs, check them out:

And in case you missed, here’s another scoop from TVLine:
“She comes back as part of Chase’s plan,” says co-showrunner Wendy Mericle.”Chase knows exactly what he’s doing, and he understands how unsettling seeing somebody that looks like Laurel Lance is going to be for the rest of the team,” her “dad” Quentin included. “And from a writing perspective, it’s just fun storytelling. Katie Cassidy does an amazing job as Black Siren, and seeing her take on Dinah, or her take on Lance, is going to be fun.”
“This is another set we grabbed at Elements while in Dallas and another example of why it is so important to try things on.
Having seen this set as we entered (we always beeline straight for the Zimmerman section out of habit), we laughed about all of the places you could wear a bra top and a pair of silk shorts. But then all of our jokes started to make sense…
The top with high-waisted mom denim and a blazer. The shorts with an oversized button down and heeled sandals. The top over a t-shirt with palazzo pants. The shorts over a swimsuit (or hell, a bodysuit!) at the beach…
Then, suddenly, the whole set was in the dressing room, Katie was raving about how cool it was and the rest is credit card history. And while we absolutely adore the set as a, well, set. We kind of are more excited about the things these two pieces are going to accomplish apart.
Stay tuned. We have plans for this one.”
PHOTOSHOOTS> TOMBOY KC > 2017 > SUMMER IN THE CITY
Bring out the swimsuits, sunscreen and Moscow mules because it’s about to get all summer up in here.
Just one more month and then it’s officially on. We are prepping by starting our tans early, breaking in our beachwear (hashtag this Koza stuff might be the new uniform) and getting in a more relaxed state of mind.
Palm tree earrings required.
Sure, May is gonna be a doozy (there’s always a lot going on), but there is a bright light at the end of the tunnel and it is worth the hustle. So keep your eye on the prize (and start getting those kaftans ready) people. Summer is on it’s way.”

In this new interview with CBR, Wendy Mericle talked about Black Siren’s return:
Speaking of legacy, can you tease your favorite thing about Black Siren’s return?
WM:What I love the most about Black Siren is seeing Katie Cassidy play a badass. [laughs] I mean, she was a badass before as Black Canary, but playing this other role with this darkness to it… it’s just a very interesting color for her to play, as she did Laurel, which she did an amazing job. She brings so much to this role, and it’s really seeing Katie really nail the ins and outs of this character. I think the other interesting thing about it and my favorite part is the impact that it has emotionally on the people who knew Laurel before she was unfortunately killed in Season 4. What does it mean to see this person who looks exactly like this person you loved and have them come back and be evil? It raises all kinds of questions for the people who knew her best, and that part is just absolutely rich character territory that we can play with and we’re really excited about doing that going forward.
