The hit The CW television series Arrow has been giving us plenty of familiar DC characters over its three seasons so far and there have been plenty of rumours about which future DC characters will be popping up on the show in the future. One rumours that recently did the rounds, was that we would see David Ramsey's character John Diggle actually being John Stewart aka Green Lantern in Arrow.
These rumours had fans around the world very excited about the prospect of having Green Lantern in Arrow but, while we could possibly get Green Arrow appearing in Arrow in the future, it will not John Stewart. Arrow Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim has spoken about the rumour, insisting that John Diggle will not become John Stewart, as Warner Bros. and DC have other plans for him.
Guggenheim was chatting to MTV News, when he said, "It’s funny, I’ve spoken to David quite a bit about this issue, I know it keeps coming up. I spoke to [writer] Geoff Johns at DC after that interview went viral. Basically, John Diggle is now a character in the comics… John Diggle is John Diggle. We’re not being coy and saying John Diggle is someone else, i.e. John Stewart."
He added, "DC has other plans for that character. We love David, and we love the character of John Diggle that he’s created. We have really cool plans for him… they involve a wedding ring, but they don’t involve a power ring."
It is certainly going to be interesting to see what DC and Warner Bros. do come up with over the next few years and how their movies will compare to those of Marvel. As for Arrow, we look forward to seeing which familiar characters will pop up on the show in the future.
