After eight seasons of enjoying regular human, generally vigilante John Diggle on Arrow, David Ramsey is able to take the following step in his hero’s journey.
After we final noticed Diggle in the series finale of Arrow, he discovered a field containing an object that emitted a glowing inexperienced gentle. Regardless of being the top of the present, this teased his potential recruitment by the Guardians of the Universe, opening up the likelihood for Diggle’s transformation into the Inexperienced Lantern of the Arrowverse. Since then, the character has appeared on Batwoman—nonetheless regular—and can quickly be making his method to Metropolis, Smallville, and Central Metropolis.
“Yeah, John Diggle does pop round,” David Ramsey tells Den of Geek. “He goes to Superman & Lois and he does go to Flash, he goes to Supergirl. However, once more, John Diggle, he goes there and suits inside their storyline however he’s holding a burden in his again pocket that we see that he’s coping with.”
As co-head of A.R.G.U.S., Diggle has an apparent entry level into the newest superhero shenanigans, although his personal vigilante days are behind him. We’ll get to spend extra time with him in upcoming episodes, and comply with the following leg of his journey. “First, he began off as a safety guard for Oliver Queen. Then he grew to become his finest buddy. He grew to become a vigilante himself. He grew to become a father and a husband. Now, he’s strolling into his cosmic future,” Ramsey teases.
Diggle, it appears, wasn’t quite ready to answer the call on the finish of Arrow. In his Batwoman look, Diggle is in Gotham to get therapy for debilitating complications. It might be a consequence of rejecting what was in that field, a alternative we’ll quickly be taught extra about. “He’s all the time been suspicious of that different world. Now, he’s been offered with a chance to affix that fraternity, and he’s denied it. So we’re simply starting to inform that story of what it means to him to disclaim that cosmic future that he finally has.”
If we needed to guess, that future comes with a inexperienced go well with and powers that rival even Earth’s mightiest heroes. And Ramsey is worked up to discover what which means in a universe the place Superman exists. “Superman & Lois has its personal place it’s going, and it’s a really fascinating place. So I’d like to see, as John Diggle evolves into whoever he—and no matter he—evolves into, how that pertains to this alien who’s probably the most highly effective individual on the planet.”
A Inexperienced Lantern will surely be one of many extra highly effective characters we’ve seen within the CW DC universe. And although these powers come from elsewhere, Diggle may be very a lot a human, and protecting of humanity. “I’d like to see finally when John Diggle comes into his personal, into his subsequent evolution, his relationship with Superman.”
It’s a future practically a decade within the making, and one Ramsey is worked up to play. “I feel that’s how I really feel about John Diggle. His future is price watching the journey.”
John Diggle will subsequent seem on The Flash season 7 episode 16, which airs on July 6 on The CW.
