Arrow’s Michael Jai White Wants To Play John Stewart Green Lantern In DCEU

Green Lantern has long been a source of speculation for Arrow fans. Many spent the show’s run hoping John Diggle would eventually play a version of the character, specifically John Stewart.

After several subtle references over the years, Arrow finally paid off on the idea in its series finale earlier this year, offering a fun Green Lantern tease in the show’s final moments. Some hope Diggle’s portrayer, David Ramsey, will play a role in HBO Max’s upcoming Green Lantern series.

However, Ramsey hasn’t been able to comment on a future as Green Lantern, only saying “we’ll still see,” after Arrow‘s series finale. The Green Lantern show will feature two different Green Lanterns, making it a little more likely Ramsey could play one of them.

John Stewart is one of several Green Lanterns and also notable for being DC’s first black superhero. Starting as a backup for Green Lantern Hal Jordan, Stewart eventually takes over the lead position.

However, Jordan is still the Green Lantern shown most often on TV and film. Ryan Reynolds’ version of the character is probably the most well-known, appearing in 2011’s famously bad Green Lantern movie. However, Stewart was a part of Cartoon Network’s Justice League animated series in the early 2000s, as well as some other pieces of media.
