Could Arrow’s John Diggle really be Green Lantern John Stewart?

As all good rumours do, this one popped up a few days ago and, frankly, we thought there was nothing to it; but it seems that it’s really gathering steam now. So much so that actor David Ramsey himself had to talk about it… could John Diggle in Arrow be GREEN LANTERN?!

Well, before we hear what he has to say, let’s look a little closer. Do John Stewart and John Diggle share any traits? COULD they be the same person? Well, they both have a military background, and they both take no nonsense. However, Diggle is now part of the comic world and, as Comic Book Movie point out that “Diggle’s last name is actually Stewart kind of undermines the homage the show has made to Andy”. But, that said, it seems that the idea – or something like it – is being developed by the good folk behind TV’s best comic book show… John Stewart Diggle, perhaps? Anyway…

We’ve posted the full interview below, but here’s what Ramsey had to say:

“Is John Diggle John Stewart? I cannot say “yes,” and I cannot say, “no.” I’m serious! I do know that there is serious discussion about whether or not this guy becomes John Stewart. But, I mean, I’ll say this: it is top secret. I’ve asked them – 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 they have told me that they are thinking about it and that they are considering it. But they’re not going to release anything yet. That’s exactly what the told me. Greg Berlanti told me that. Andrew [Kreisberg] and Marc [Guggenheim] have told me that. I haven’t spoken to Geoff Johns about it. But that’s the word from people directly involved in Arrow- that they’re working on something. “Here’s the truth of it: if I knew, I would tell you I know the answer to that, but I’m not at liberty to tell you that. I would answer like that. I probably wouldn’t’t tell you anyway, but I would at least tell you that I know. I honestly do not know.”  

So, there you have it… Arrow may not be the only ‘Green’ prefix in the show soon. But, as always, pinch of salt, folks…

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….
