I really like that role call bit, and it’s great to see R’amey Holl and Bloobert Cob. Putting John Stewart in a sea of bizarre aliens is exactly what I want to see! I’m very happy to see Bernard Chang back again. We can always count on a stellar issue with the team of Marcelo Maiolo, Bernard Chang, and Van Jensen.
Pick this one up May 14th.

Oa, by the way


The fan theory of the Arrow character John Diggle really being Green Lantern John Stewart has reached Arrow star Stephen Amell, and he weighs in on the notion, which seems to be growing in popularity. During a Facebook Q & A session, Amell was shown a fan manipulation image depicting Diggle decked out in Green Lantern garb. To that, he said:

“I mean it looks good. And if we know anything about television shows, if it looks good, it has a much better chance of happening.”

Fans have been suggesting that “Diggle” may be a nickname given to John during his time in the military, and his true last name is Stewart. It would certainly be cool to have John Stewart appearing regularly on a new television show again, and at the very least, this theory helps keep the character’s name in the public conscious. The media still clearly cares about the character, as he’s gotten much buzz and attention lately, and many people in the television and movie businesses have directly addressed him, which is always a good sign.

Here are some articles that elaborate on the John “Diggle” Stewart theories:

    That actor doesn’t suit John Stewart, IMHO. I would prefer they cast someone else as John Stewart in that universe. Perhaps he could show up on The Flash. 🙂

      Understandable sentiments. I would, however, really like to see John on a new show again. These John Stewart rumors are getting a bit tiresome. I would really like some confirmation on SOMETHING. Van Jensen said 2014 will be a huge year for John Stewart, but five months into the year, and things aren’t THAT different from 2013. The biggest thing for John this year has brought is his role in Smallville: Lantern.

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for all the prospects for John that have been brought up, but the “maybe this” and “maybe that” and “there’s this rumor…” are getting a little old. I’m ready for a definite yes or no (much preferably a yes) :p

      • Hudson Faber says:

        Lol, I totally get how you feel. I don’t think anyone talks to the comics guys about stuff outside of comics, but John definitely needs more of a push. Hopefully WB announces that he’ll be in the JL Movie at SDCC. It’s supposed to be filmed back-to-back with BvS, which started filming in February and should finish in the fall. If JL starts filming in the fall, casting should happen soon.

          I’ve heard from numerous people who claim to have connections in the industry that they’re going with John Stewart. These people have been right about everything else they mentioned, and Chadwick Boseman name dropping the character is very reassuring. So is the fact that Hal Jordan was removed from Geoff Johns’ Justice League (I assume that was editorially mandated), and that Jordan suspiciously didn’t appear in that Target exclusive JLA cartoon that was released. VERY suspicious, considering the main guy behind it was the guy largely behind GL: TAS.

          • Hudson Faber says:

            Yup, that’s what I’m thinking and obviously what I’m hoping for. Johns said Hal would be back in JL in 2013–that clearly didn’t happen. Chadwick Boseman as John Stewart would be ****ing amazing. Throw in the Gail Simone graphic novel + more Jensen and Chang, and you have a very good year for John. I’m knocking on wood.

          • Desh Derringer says:

            Yeah. The fact that John appeared in the free comic book day giveaway Futures End #0 and Hal Jordan did not is also a good sign. DC is definitely giving John more attention, and I think that can only mean good things on the horizon. I hope he continues to appear in that title. It would be really good for his profile.

          • Hudson Faber says:

            Definitely. I’d like to see his friendships extended to further entrench him in the DCU. I like how he was presented as a mentor to Blue Beetle. Hopefully we’ll see him establish a friendship with Flash soon. I wouldn’t mind seeing the two in a The Brave and The Bold title. The more John Stewart, the better. 🙂
