While talking with TV Guide, Ramsey addressed the possibility of Diggle suiting up as the iconic superhero, Green Lantern:
“We’ve been talking about that ring since Season 1. I always loved the idea of being able to jump into the John Stewart mythos, obviously, but I also loved the idea that we were creating something that didn’t exist before. John Diggle never existed before. We created this character, Spartan, that never existed in the comics or in any other universe, and now it’s part of the comics. So that was always something and continues to be something I’m really proud of. But who can resist playing the Green Lantern? So yeah, was I excited when I saw that? Without a doubt. Will it ever happen? Who knows. I don’t have the answer to that — it’s way above my paygrade — but it’s something would love to do. Even without [the Green Lantern], I think that John Diggle, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) work. If John Stewart fits within that realm some type of way or another, great. If not, I couldn’t have picked a better role to have played in my life.”
Elseworlds stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West-Allen, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen / Green Arrow, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El / Kara Danvers / Supergirl, Tyler Hoechlin as Kal-El / Clark Kent / Superman, Ruby Rose as Kate Kane / Batwoman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Cassandra Jean Amell as Nora Fries, Jeremy Davies as John Deegan, Bob Frazer as Roger Hayden / Psycho-Pirate, LaMonica Garrett as Mar Novu / Monitor, and John Wesley Shipp as his 1990s version of Barry Allen / The Flash.
Arkham Asylum doctor John Deegan rewrites reality, which results in Oliver Queen and Barry Allen swapping lives. In the new reality, they are the only ones that know that they are in the wrong lives and have each other’s powers, which results in them going to Gotham City with Kara Danvers / Supergirl to confront Deegan.
The Elseworlds crossover is now streaming on The CW.
