The CW’s Arrow will come face to face with Black Canary in Season 2′s fourth episode, and series lead Stephen Amell has shared a first look at the iconic twosome.

Facebook Friends! You get it first… Black Canary!” Amell shared on his Facebook page, posting the close-up two-shot. Simultaneously, he tweeted the second photo, both from the episode “Crucible.”

In other Arrow news, EP Marc Guggenheim told DC Comics’ new “DC All Access” web series that Fringe fave Seth Gabel will be reprising his Season 1 role as Count Vertigo, “bringing a whole lot of chaos with him!”

Back to Black: Arrow‘s first iteration of the female vigilante is played by Caity Lotz, news which raised the eyebrows of those who assumed Katie Cassidy’s Laurel Lance was fated to fill the role. “We completely appreciate people’s concern for the character and for Katie, but we promise we are telling the best story about Laurel,” showrunner Andrew Kreisberg told TVLine. “It really is all Laurel’s story, another step in her journey.”

Having already featured two Merlyns, a pair of possible Speedys, dos Deathstrokes and even positing that Yao Fae was the original Arrow, Kreisberg says, “What we’re doing with the Black Canary storyline, we’ve basically done several times before.”

Taking a cue from the comic books, Kreisberg describes Black Canary as “one of the first real feminist heroes, and her mission is to protect women, women who were abused by men or attacked by men.” As seen in last week’s season opener, “She’s sort of following a ‘Take Back the Night’ mission when we first meet her, beating up men who’ve assaulted women.”
