Arrow’s David Ramsey says there’s been talk about his Green Lantern future

May 24th, 2020 by Marc Comments

One of the biggest peeves of fans of the Arrowverse was that, despite the tease (here), we never got to see the character of John (Stewart) Diggle getting to become the Green Lantern as had been teased and hinted at for so long.

Now, however, star David Ramsey has been talking about the Green Lantern role and it seems that he may be hinting at something still to come.

Now, we know that HBO Max is developing a Green Lantern series and this certainly isn’t the first time we have speculated that Diggle is set for bigger things (here).

“The way John Diggle ended there’s another beginning for him,” Ramsey says.

“So I think for a character like this, and for the type of people that are writing around it, I think it can remain fresh for a long time.”

But he’s not done there… he confirms that there has been some talk: “There’s talk about me coming back.

“I mean, it may or may not be so quiet, but you know something else, the idea that you might not be working or things will be a lot different when work does come has made me kind of appreciate the idea of working in general… I’m kind of looking forward to getting to work and if that kind of involves the Arrowverse, I’m happy for it.”

If this is true and what we think then, as we have speculated in the past, it would mean that the upcoming Green Lantern is an extended part fo the Arrowverse and further to our piece yesterday about Matt Ryan’s being the key to tying the whole DC universe together (here), it looks like maybe DC Universe, The CW and now HBO Max are much more connected than many assumed.

Personally, I think this is all very exciting. It means that, if some fans want, the shows can all be watched separately and not connected, but if they want to deep dive, the connections run through the whole universe.

I, personally, think that that’s very cool, indeed.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
