It's about time!
On Thursday, the CW announced David Ramsey's John Diggle will finally get a costume after fighting the good fight with Team Arrow all of these years. The new costume — complete with a Magneto-style helmet (masks are so passé) — will make its debut in the season premiere.
Here's the new outfit:
But don't get too excited that the new costume means he's getting additional superhero trappings. Ramsey discussed what it meant to have the new costume with his toddler DJ in a conversation he tweeted:
DJ: Will you have superpowers with your new costume? ME: No. DJ: A new name? ME: No. DJ: I don't know what to say, Daddy...— David Ramsey (@david_ramsey) August 8, 2015
This isn't the first wardrobe upgrade we've seen for the upcoming season. Now that Arrow is becoming Green Arrow, he got a wardrobe update also. Arrow star Stephen Amell showed off his new outfit at Comic-Con, and you can see it here.
Arrow returns Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8/7c on the CW.
