There have been in-jokes in both “Arrow” and “The Flash” about how Diggle needed a new helmet for some time now, and it seems that day has finally arrived. In a new promo video promoting The CW's fall season, fans can catch a first glimpse of Diggle’s long-awaited new helmet. Apparently a Cisco-creation, the new version seems to have mended a lot of the problems fans had with the original helmet, exchanging the modern age-Spartan look for a more futuristic red visor.
Speaking a few months ago, actor David Ramsey, who plays original Team Arrow member John Diggle, said he had seen the new helmet and he was very excited to wear it in the new season. "Central City will be working on an upgrade to Diggle’s helmet," Ramsye said. "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."
The CW promo features cast and crew from “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Supergirl” preparing their new seasons with action shots, interviews and posing for promo photos.
Season 3 of “The Flash” premieres on October 4, whereas Season 5 of “Arrow” premieres on October 5. Season 2 of “Supergirl” will premiere on October 10.
