Remember that annoying character from last season’s Arrow episode, “Canary Cry?” The one who impersonated the Black Canary in the episode after her death?
Well, seems that the creators of Arrow did not find her as annoying as viewers did. Madison McLaughlin will be reprising her role as Evelyn Sharp. The character is set to become the archer vigilante named Artemis.
When we last saw the character Sharp had impersonated the Black Canary to seek revenge for her parent’s deaths on Damien and Ruve Darhk.
According to Variety, the story is set to take place over several episodes as she begins to forge her new heroic identity.
The character of Artemis was previously featured in the animated series, Young Justice, and was loosely based on the comic book character Arrowette. The daughter of villains Sportsmaster and Tigress, she became Green Arrow’s sidekick after Speedy went solo.
Arrow may be setting the character up on a similar path, with a mentor/mentee relationship between Oliver and Artemis.
Let’s hope they make the character less annoying next season, since we’ll certainly be seeing more of her.
Arrow returns with it’s season 5 premiere on Wednesday, October 5th on The CW.
