Arrow star David Ramsey recently discussed the challenge of a potential Green Lantern television show.
Fans have been speculating for years that John Diggle would eventually become a Green Lantern as the Arrow version of the comic book Green Lantern John Stewart. Both Arrow and The Flash have scattered plenty of Green Lantern references across the years, from Coast City, Ferris Air and even a brief glimpse of a green pilot’s jacket with a “Jordan” nametag. During the Elseworlds crossover, The Flash of Earth-90 also asked David Ramsay’s John where his ring was, hinting at his Green Lantern persona in the multiverse. But with Arrow ending this season, some fans are theorizing that John Diggle will pick up a Green Lantern ring to expand David Ramsey’s role in the Arrowverse.
Most recently, David Ramsey spoke to ComicBook.com about the possibility of a Green Lantern show and the challenges that would come with that. He also discussed how many times he and Arrow executive consultant Marc Guggenheim have spoken about things relating to a potential Green Lantern role on the show, which proves to the dedicated fans that conversations are happening. Read what David Ramsey had to say on the idea below.
“I cannot tell you how many times. But really, I don’t have to knock on Marc’s door. He’s been incredibly forthright with letting me know the plan, and letting me know some of the politics behind it. Green Lantern is a tremendously large property, and it’s not easily done. If it was done on TV, imagine the cost. So it’s one of those things where it’s going to take a great deal of preparation if and when it’s ever done.”

Here is the official synopsis for the final season of Stephen Amell’s Arrow:
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, Oliver successfully saved his city with the help of his team including former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), former protégé Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez), metahuman Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) and Earth-2 Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy). In the wake of discovering what his future holds, Oliver will find himself pit against his most challenging battle yet, one that will leave the multiverse hanging in the balance. In Arrow’s final season, Oliver Queen is forced to confront the reality of what it means to be a hero.
The series stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, Kirk Acevedo, Sea Shimooka and Katie Cassidy Rodgers.
Arrow season 8 premieres on October 15, 2019, on The CW. Stay tuned for the latest news on David Ramsey’s future in the Arrowverse!
