John Diggle is due for a costume upgrade. “Arrow’s” David Ramsey revealed to IGN that the STAR Labs crew from “The Flash” is working on an upgrade for Diggle’s helmet, though he has yet to see it himself.
“Central City will be working on an upgrade to Diggle’s helmet,” Ramsey revealed. “That is yet to come, and we will be seeing some of that come out of Central City. As the first iteration came out of Central City, we will see an upgrade also come out. But in terms of Central City’s help with technology to help us combat the magic, that has yet to be seen.”
“I have not seen it yet! I have not seen it,” he added. “Listen, there’s two things I’m anxious about: my helmet, and who’s in the grave. The rest of which I’m cool with.”
In regards to the gap left by Amanda Waller at A.R.G.U.S., Ramsey said, “[Diggle and Lyla] both are very invested in what happens to A.R.G.U.S. next — personally invested, and we will get into that. Part of it will even go over into the story of ‘The Flash’ in how they become involved in A.R.G.U.S. Much of the reason why they’re even in Central City is because of their investment in A.R.G.U.S. They’re very invested in what happens with that organization.”
While he didn’t say when Diggle would receive his new helmet, Ramsey is slated to appear in episode 15 of “The Flash” season two, where Diggle and his wife Lyla will head to Central City and join Team Flash in pursuit of King Shark, who has escaped A.R.G.U.S. custody. Chances are he’ll get his helmet during this minor “Flash”/”Arrow” team up.
