Followers have been clamoring for John Diggle to grow to be a Inexperienced Lantern for years. As soon as Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim received concerned in Seth Grahame-Smith’s Green Lantern Corps series at HBO Max, many assumed that Ramsey’s John Diggle would issue into that present, particularly after what transpired for the character in his last moments within the collection finale of “Arrow.” Nonetheless, Oliver Queen’s former bodyguard has continued to pop up in Arrowverse reveals since that final episode aired in 2020 with no reference to a inexperienced ring or a lantern or area cops. And now, The CW has introduced one other venture for Dig which will additional preserve him from becoming a member of the ranks of Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Alan Scott, and past.
In keeping with Variety, Ramsey will headline “Justice U,” a brand new superhero drama the place Diggle recruits 5 younger metahumans to go undercover as freshmen at a prestigious college. As the scholars get an educational training, they will additionally be taught to grow to be the heroes of tomorrow beneath the tutelage of the legendary hero Spartan. It is at the moment unclear which younger heroes shall be included within the present, however the report notes that Ramsey will direct the “Justice U” pilot and proceed to visitor star in and direct numerous episodes of different Arrowverse reveals as a part of his new deal.
This new present shares vibes with “Arrow” season 5, which featured Staff Arrow taking up a brand new crop of vigilantes together with Wild Canine, Mister Terrific, Artemis, Ragman, and a brand new Black Canary to hitch their battle on crime. Contemplating that they might not match the age requirement for this missions, I doubt that Diggle will name on a few of his previous allies for this new gig. Nonetheless, regardless of her mission to search out her brother William, I may see Mia Queen becoming a member of the forged of “Justice U.” In spite of everything, her own spinoff by no means materialized as deliberate and there could be one thing poetic about John Diggle and the Inexperienced Arrow teaming up once more.
Regardless of who Ramsey and the artistic workforce resolve to usher in for the brand new collection, let’s simply hope that they handle to discover a comfortable medium between DC’s different younger hero reveals, “Stargirl” and “Titans.” Please give us a DC present the place (in contrast to “Titans”) the younger superheroes truly get to be superheroes of their costumes collectively as a workforce with out excessively brooding or consistently combating with one another, whereas (in contrast to “Stargirl”) refraining from falling into typical annoying younger character tropes of being whiny or bratty when they do not get their approach. After all, time will inform whether or not any of that truly involves fruition, but when The CW does not shutter its doorways earlier than this present comes collectively, it may very well be a whole lot of enjoyable.
