‘Arrow’ Season 8 Will Address Diggle’s Green Lantern Ties
We are fast approaching the premiere of the final season of Arrow. Set to not only look back on the show’s legacy but also build towards the CW’s massive Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. Now, based on new comments from series star David Ramsey, it will also answer a long unanswered question.
At multiple points in the series, it has been teased that Ramsey’s character has some connection to the Green Lantern mythos. Last week at San Diego Comic-Con Ramsey was asked if we will see more of Diggle’s father in the upcoming season. While answering the question, the actor ended up revealing much more than was asked
“Yes. And Diggle’s relationship with his father as well. There will be loose ends tied up. The relationship between him and his sons, I think we’re going to find out about. There’s a lot in ten episodes we’ll be finding out. And Lyla is a pivotal piece in these upcoming ten episodes. And then ultimately what happens with the Green Lantern mythos. I think all those are going to be answered in ten episodes.”
The actor seems to have overshared here revealing that the season will finally explain what the character has to do with the Green Lantern. Given it would be strange for them to reveal Diggle is a Lantern, it could make sense for them to reveal an alternate version of the character is during the crossover. This shouldn’t seem as too much of a stretch since the Arrowverse has featured several characters from alternate world’s to be played by the same character.
How do you think Arrow will finally address Diggle’s ties to Green Lantern? Let us know in the comments below!
Arrow will air Tuesdays at 9/8c this fall on The CW.
