We had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Juliana Harkavy last week where we touched on a number of different topics including what we can expect from Dinah Drake and the Black Canary in the final episodes of Arrow for Season 6 as well as how her character will progress into Season 7. This is the first little tidbit of our over 30 minute conversation which we will be rolling out over the week. Make sure you check back in so you don’t miss anything!
We asked Juliana if there are any other superheroes she would like to play on the Marvel side given she’s already established herself as one of the top crime fighters in DC Comics’ and The CW’s Arrowverse as the Black Canary.
Juliana initially told us she would “love to play Storm in X-Men.” In fact Juliana is a big fan of the X-Men. She would add, “All of the X-Men characters really intrigue me.” And while she initially told us she would love to play Storm, she had her heart set on another X-Men.
“Wolverine is my favorite. And I don’t know how I would live in that world, but I would love to at some point.”
Well, we had a pretty big surprise for her! We informed her that X-23 actually holds the Wolverine title in the current run of Marvel Comics, although she’s about to return to her roots as Laura Kinney. As you can imagine Juliana was more than excited!
“I had no idea. That’s exactly who I would want to play like a thousand percent that’s so cool.” She added, “That’s so cool. I would love to do something like that.”
You can catch Juliana Harkavy on Arrow when it airs on The CW on Thursdays at 9 p.m. There’s only seven episodes left of Season 6!
