    That's a pretty large leap all the way to "she's disguised as a street walker".

    I'm confused. Do women normally wear costumes or do they wear clothes?
    Is it normal for a woman to wear battle gear on a bright sunny day in Gotham City?

    None of the Birds really look like themselves to me, especially after that teaser.

    I'm kind of curious about what they meant by the ending the book because of the "larger universe." Are there plans for Ollie that necessitated ending the book?

    Uh, Black Canary (Dinah) had been a Caucasian woman in the past (at least since she was first introduced in 1947). Did they cast her as an African-American for the movie?

    Well, Black Canary is one of the superheroes who can walk around in their working clothes and no-one will bat an eye. But even so, the clothes shown doesn't fit with how I view Black Canary's style and sensibilities, or what she has been shown wearing when not in her working clothes.

    It *should* be!

    I wouldn't walk out of my bedroom without riot gear on if I were in Gotham!

That was one of the most stupid obvious things to do with Dinah I don't get why no one had done it before. I sure as hell never thought of it!
    I miss that book so damn much. Sigh.

    Yeah, there’s a super weird obsession with calling black women in nerd media prostitues and hookers. I wonder why. It starts with a ‘r,’ I think?

    Anyway, it’s obviously civilian attire, and something Babs Tarr or Annie Wu would have easily drawn her in, and they’re definitely leaning hard into that take.

    I honestly don't think they would have. I agree with kjn that it doesn't really fit Dinah's casual style, even during the DCYou stuff.

    Yes the actress playing her is black.

    Half African-American anyway. Her father is a Russian Jew whose family immigrated to the US.

    I don't care about her being a singer (I thought that kinda made sense) I'm just really hoping that the depiction of hey is correct; sunny, sassy, compassionate, tactical leader, incomparable martial arts and her Canary Cry. From these pics we can tell none of that.
    As far as her look, she DOESN'T look like a prostitute, that's just ridiculous and insulting and the rest is just preference. Is it how I picture Dinah? No, but I think it's a cool look that I find acceptable.

    My only problem with the whole movie is they cast an actress or color as a point of diversification and cast a Caucasian actress as the Huntress which is a character of color. It just makes no sense at all.
