SDCC 2019: John Diggle’s Sons Face Off in the Final Season of Arrow

Charlie Barnett

With the reappearance of The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) in the season seven finale of Arrow, there’s no doubt that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Team Arrow will be facing a “crisis” unlike anything they’ve previously faced before. Cast and producers of The CW/Warner Bros. Television’s DC series elaborated on what’s in store for the future in Arrow’s final season San Diego Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 20.

Following last season’s introduction of next-gen vigilantes Mia Smoak and Connor Hawke, Comic-Con fans were excited to learn of John Diggle’s other son, John Diggle, Jr., to be played by new series regular Charlie Barnett. Diggle, Jr. — known as J.J. — is the Flashpoint-born son of John Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson). We meet J.J. in the future as the leader of the Deathstroke Gang, where he faces off against Mia and his adopted brother, Connor.

Barnett joins previously announced new series regulars Katherine McNamara, Joseph David-Jones and Ben Lewis as Mia Smoak, Connor Hawke and Oliver Queen’s adopted son, William Clayton, respectively.

Arrow returns for its eighth and final season on October 15 in its new Tuesday 9/8c time period on The CW.

Crisis on Infinite Earths is Coming Fall 2019

The CW‘s “Elseworlds” crossover between Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl is over and throughout the entire event it hinted at an adaptation of a classic DC Comics event, Crisis on Infinite Earths. As Supergirl wrapped up, we now know next year’s Fall 2019 crossover is exactly that.

The event has been hinted at since the first season of The Flash where it was revealed The Flash disappeared during a “crisis.”

We’ve got a year to wait in anticipation.


The CW’s “Elseworlds” Crossover Gets the DC Comic Book Treatment

There’s a lot we still don’t know about this year’s Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash DCTV crossover event, “Elseworlds,” one thing readers are pretty clear on is what that title is a reference to. “Elseworlds” is the name of a popular line of comics from DC’s past that completely reimagined the worlds of DC’s greatest heroes. It’s a part of the company’s legacy, something that’s nodded to in a unique new image that’s promoting the three-night event.

Drawn by comic book artist Amy Reeder and designed to look like the cover of one of DC’s monthly comics, this illustration also includes the classic, all-lowercase “Elseworlds” logo. With LaMonica Garrett’s Monitor seen looming in the background, Reeder’s illustration portrays the heroes of the crossover—Green Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl, Superman and Batwoman—seemingly battling each other. Beneath them, Jeremy Davies’ maniacal-looking Dr. John Deegan can be seen looking up at them in delight, suggesting he might be the cause of the mayhem. Fans will also notice that the Flash in the image is actually Stephen Amell, while Green Arrow is Grant Gustinsomething already teased through photos.

Reeder has drawn several highly regarded comics for DC, including the bestselling New 52 Batwoman series, which helped to define the Kate Kane version of the character.

Look for the “Elseworlds” crossover event to kick off on Sunday, December 9 at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. CST), then continue at the same time on December 10 and December 11 on The CW.
