Since a sign for Ferris Air was spotted in the season one finale to Arrow, there’s been speculation as to whether Hal Jordan’s Green Lantern could make an appearance in the CW show, while persistent rumours have linked David Ramsey’s John Diggle to that of another Green Lantern, John Stewart.
Well, now that Diggle is getting a (non-Green Lantern) costume [see concept art here] we can safely rule out the John Stewart links, and it seems like the recent news about a Green Lantern Corps movie will also prevent Hal Jordan from making an appearance in the series.
