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