With seven years of fan theories pointing towards John Diggle eventually becoming a Green Lantern on Arrow, actor David Ramsey pours more fuel on the fire.
For years, fans have speculated that John Diggle, played by David Ramsey, was actually Arrow‘s version of John Stewart, a.k.a. the Green Lantern. John Stewart and David Ramsey’s John Diggle share only a few similarities, such as they’re both noble, ex-military African American heroes with the first name John, but that didn’t stop the fan theories from running rampant. Arrow star David Ramsey spoke on the fan theories about suiting up as Green Lantern in a recent interview with ComicBook.com:
“I think that John Diggle has become more and more at ease with working with the more otherworldly aspects of crime fighting, but I think as time goes on, you have more and more opportunities that you can deal with it. It’s like “okay, now you’re dealing with people who can fly, or can move faster than time, who can go back in time.” For someone like John Diggle, it expands his world bigger and bigger and bigger. That’s why I think, we don’t know what’s going to happen with Green Lantern. It’s always fun to sort of tease that, but it’s also a fun idea, that someone as normal as him — the idea that he could be part of this huge tapestry of galactic characters is interesting. Again, that’s something that we don’t know is ever going to happen, but the teasing of that is what I think makes that so special. This guy is not part of that at all, but to make him part of that is a really interesting idea.”
Season 7 has teased multiple times that David Ramsey’s Diggle will become the John Stewart Green Lantern. This week’s episode of Arrow featured his Stepfather, General Stewart, bringing the last name into the mix and earlier this year during the Elseworlds crossover, an alternate universe Flash hinted that Diggle was a Green Lantern on his Earth.
