You hear that sound? That's the rumor mill frantically grinding away as it heats up over gossip regarding The CW's Arrow's right hand man!
In an interview with ComicBook.com, David Ramsey, the actor who portrays John Diggle, gave his ten cents to the fan theory that Diggle could in fact be Justice League Unlimited's Green Lantern John Stewart by neither denying or solidifying the rumor, adding more flame to fire...
Now, John Stewart… Is John Diggle John Stewart? I cannot say “yes,” and cannot say, “no.”
Ramsey revealed that there have been discussions between Arrow producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kriesberg and Marc Guggenheim over whether Diggle will become John Stewart on Arrow, but brought our collective feet back down to the ground after being fed alluringly cryptic lines like "we're working on something," and "they have told me that they are thinking about it and they are considering it."
But, I mean, I’ll say this: it is top secret. David Ramsey has asked them, and they’re like, 'we’re working on some stuff.' If that’s the case, it’s gonna be huge. This is the stuff they want to avoid. I think they don’t want anybody to know yet and they haven’t even told me.
But Ramsey is no stranger to the wonderful world of superheroes and is majorly aware of what a great honor it would be to play one of DC's greatest heroes.
To answer your question: if Diggle becomes John Stewart, I would be honored to be play that character. Honored. The same way that I am honored that John Diggle is now a part of the DC canon. That’s just an incredible honor to me. I would love it because I think that he’s an awesome character.
So, great news or awesome news there from the halls of The CW? I cannot wait to see how Diggle's character plays out, and I really hope he does end up donning the power ring.
What do you guys think?
