My favorite voice for Black Canary is Morena Baccarin's voice. It sounds sexy, confident and alluring. Vanessa Marshall is a very close second. Grey DeLisle's Brave and the Bold voice was good too but just doesn't connect with me. However I really liked her DC Showcase voice and although isn't that different from her Brave and the Bold voice, IMO it's an improvement so this version is tied with Vanessa Marshall's voice. Kari Wuhrer only had the one line in the entire movie so it's not that memorable but IMO it did sound pretty good (as short as it was) and had potential.

Going with Grey Delisle. I think she displayed a better range thanks to both the DC Showcase and Brave and the Bold.

I like Morena's take as well. But compared to Grey, she kinda sounds a little flat. But that's not to say that I didn't like her performance.

With Vanessa, I think she sounds a bit too old for the character, which is kinda what I thought about her Mary Jane to an extent. The performance is alright in it's own way, but it doesn't fare as well as Morena or Grey's versions.

@Troodon2 Kari Wahlgren. Nothing against Laura Bailey, I just prefer Kari's work.

Karl voiced her in the recent GA DC Nation short.

sticking with Morena....and dude she's hot in real life....

going for Grey for second and Vanessa for third
said at 7:35 PM on Thu Aug 29 2013
I personally prefer Grey the most, but they all did pretty well overall.
said at 11:59 PM on Wed Mar 20 2013
Don't wanna sound like a stubborn YJ fanboy hear, but to me, Vanessa Marshall is perfect. Morena was a little inconsistent to me. The clip here is good, but sometimes she seems...off. IDK, maybe its just me. Grey is great to, but Kelly's underwhelming.
said at 11:34 PM on Mon Feb 11 2013
I think I may like Grey DeLisle best - though Vanessa Marshall is also very good in the role.
said at 11:52 PM on Sat Jan 12 2013
I'm going with Morena Baccarin. Kari Whurer Vanessa Marshall and Grey DeLisle were good too.
said at 9:09 AM on Wed Dec 5 2012
We need Kari Wahlgren as Black Canary.

@TheVengeanceKnight Uh that did Happen.
In Lego Batman 2.
said at 9:34 AM on Fri Dec 7 2012
@Mr.Fennoy93 Really? Has that been confirmed?
said at 11:56 AM on Fri Dec 7 2012
@TheVengeanceKnight It was for a While.

Congrats on your wish.
said at 9:19 AM on Mon Dec 10 2012
@Mr.Fennoy93 I remembered her saying on Rob Paulsen's podcast that she would love to play BC, which implies that she hasn't played her before.
said at 12:01 PM on Mon Dec 10 2012
@TheVengeanceKnight Well Lego is Lego. :p
said at 9:21 AM on Mon Feb 25 2013
@Mr.Fennoy93 If she already played Canary, why would she talk about how much she wants to play her?
said at 9:33 PM on Thu Jun 27 2013
@TheVengeanceKnight In Lego Batman 2, Kari did Black Canary's fighting sounds and impact grunts (or ADR) she never actually spoke as Black Canary. So you're right, we still have yet to hear that
said at 9:52 PM on Thu Jun 27 2013
@Lpfan120 Has that been confirmed, though?
said at 7:34 PM on Thu Aug 29 2013
That's what I've heard too, but I don't know if it's ever been officially confirmed if that was Kari in LB2. But whatever the case, I believe she meant that she wanted an actual *speaking* role as BC, since the character's vocals in LB2 were just grunts and such.

You got your wish with the recent DC Nation short.

I agree with Galactic_Cyrus that Morena is too flat-sounding, though I doubt most other people pay attention to that kind of thing when it comes to modern superhero shows :P

Overall, none of them really reach out and grab onto me, but I suppose DeLisle comes the closest, so I'll go with her.
said at 3:06 PM on Tue Nov 20 2012

Because most people now days want more serious and grounded voice acting is serious cartoons. Like it or not, the axting in a lot of older cartoons haven't aged well.

And I don't think Morena Baccarin is too flat sounding.

Morena because her voice suited BC more. Though I do like Grey.
said at 12:32 PM on Wed Jun 20 2012
Grey DeLisle actually captures the softer side, but I'm torn between Morena and Vanessa.
said at 1:59 AM on Sun Feb 12 2012
Gonig with Grey DeLisle on this one, though they others are all pretty good as Black Canary, too.
said at 9:16 AM on Wed Feb 22 2012
@AnicomicgeekOn second thought, Morena Baccarin was the best, though again, they were all pretty good.

Doesn't Marshall's voice sound to deep for a character canary's age. The way I recall she's 24 in YJ.

@Troodon2 Hey Marshall also played a teenage Mary Jane Watson.

Morena is good but it sounds a bit too flat at times. Vanessa Marshall does the voice better.
said at 2:59 PM on Wed Jun 22 2011
@Galactic_Cyrus I don't understand what you need by too flat. Is there a certain way that her voice to sound? I mean in the same sense that Batman's voice is supposed to be sort of deep and mildy raspy.

Morena is the best hands down! She gives her so much pizazz with her alluring voice! It really suits the name, "Black Canary."

I'm still missing Jennifer Hale from the PSP version of Justice League Heroes.

Anyone who has a clip or can point me in the right direction would be most helpful. :)
