Earlier this week we saw the season three finale of Arrow, which means talk has already turned to season four and what we can expect to see from the new season, when it airs later in the year. There have been a lot of rumours about the character John Diggle in recent weeks, with many people suggesting that he could actually be John Stewart aka Green Lantern.
Actor David Ramsey plays the role of John Diggle in Arrow and he has been talking about the possibility of becoming Green Lantern in Arrow season four. David says that, while he does expect to see John Diggle getting a mask and a costume of his own, he would prefer not to see the character to become Green Lantern in Arrow.
Ramsey explained, "I do think you need some kind of concealment, And to that end, they are working on something. You will see something for Diggle next year, season 4. You will. Everyone wants to talk about John Stewart. Is it “John Stewart Diggle” or “John Diggle Stewart” or whatever, and will he be Green Lantern? Marc Guggenheim has said publicly that it’s not the way to go right now. But people are still talking about it."
He added, "I think they’ve taken great strides to making John Diggle part of the lexicon, and that’s an important thing. I don’t think you want to abandon that... I think there’s something very normal about him that’s part of the appeal. I think if you put a mask on him as part of the Green Lantern Corps, and that’s wonderful by the way – John Stewart is a wonderful character – but you lose some of that. You lose part of the “everyguy” character."
Meanwhile, there have been suggestions that we could actually see the Hal Jordan version of Green Lantern appearing in The Flash season two, with a few hints being laid down in recent episodes. We would certainly be all for seeing Green Lantern in Arrow or The Flash but we would have to agree with David Ramsey, and would prefer John Diggle to remain John Diggle.
