A Green Lantern Show Starring David Ramsey Has Been Pitched To The CW


Arrow is ending soon with its upcoming eighth season, but fans are hoping that the adventures of Star City’s superheroes will continue in a spinoff or two. We’ve had it confirmed that a show based around Katherine McNamara’s Blackstar has been discussed, though The CW says no decision has been made on its viability as yet. But it seems another concept that’s – dare we say it – even more exciting is also being bounced around.

We Got This Covered has heard from our sources – the same ones who told us a Ms. Marvel TV series was happening, before it was confirmed this past weekend – that a Green Lantern show starring David Ramsey’s John Diggle has been pitched to The CW. Diggle’s long been theorized to be a doppelganger for GL John Stewart, which last year’s “Elseworlds” crossover basically confirmed. We’ve previously brought you the news that Ramsey will suit up as Stewart in December’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” mega-event, too.

It’s important to emphasize, though, that this has only been pitched at the moment, so there’s no guarantee that it’ll actually get off the ground. For instance, Katie Cassidy Rodgers recently revealed that she’s also pitched a Birds of Prey spinoff to execs, as well. In that case, it’s likely Warner Bros. would put a stop to it because of the incoming movie based on the same team. Something similar could befall a Green Lantern show, too, what with the long-gestating Green Lanterns Corps film. But it’s a fun idea to knock around for now.

If it did happen, we’ve been told that the outcome of “Crisis” will pave the way for new status quos like Diggle becoming a Green Lantern. After all, the crossover will conclude with the Arrowverse multiverse being streamlined into one Earth, meaning that Supergirl will live on Earth-1 and, apparently, that Diggle could get himself a Power Ring.

For now, we’ll have to wait and see what comes of this, but tell us, would you be interested in watching a Green Lantern show on The CW? As always, sound off down below.
