It’s no secret Team Arrow is having some major cast changes and shakeups this season. Fan favourite John Diggle will be one who is certain to be returning to the team. The return of Diggle will see him sporting an all new and improved helmet.
A season preview of The CW’s upcoming projects shows a close up look into all of the shows. When Diggle appears on camera at the 0.19 second mark in the video, his helmet appears more modern, less bulky and now has a protective red visor across its front.
Fans also get a sneak peak at Arrow, Supergirl, Flash and the Legends of Tomorrow, all sharing the same screen together. The four shows are set to be crossing over this year in an episode recently announced to be titled as Invasion.
The executive producer of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, Marc Guggenheim said:
“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse‘ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,”
“We’re using cutting edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”
Arrow is set to return to The CW on October 4th, so mark it in your diaries now! Let us know what you make of Diggle’s new headgear in the comments below, we’d love to hear from you! Check out the promotional video clip below:
