Zack Snyder’s Green Lantern will likely be John Stewart

There’s been speculation among fans that the character John Diggle from the TV show Arrow is really John Stewart, aka the Green Lantern. Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim put an end to that speculation in a new interview with MTV:

“Basically, John Diggle is now a character in the comics… John Diggle is John Diggle. We’re not being coy and saying John Diggle is someone else, i.e. John Stewart. DC has other plans for that character.”

The “other plans” that Guggenheim is referring to is almost certainly Zack Snyder’s Justice League Part One, which will be released in November 2017. Based on his comments it sounds like Snyder will be using John Stewart, rather than Hal Jordan, as Green Lantern.

Speaking of John Stewart, singer-turned-actor Tyrese Gibson has been campaigning hard for the Green Lantern role. He even hinted that he had a meeting with Warner Bros. a few weeks ago.

How do you feel about John Steward being part of Zack Snyder’s DC Universe? Let me know in the comments below.
