After three seasons of standing – and fighting – side-by-side with Oliver Queen’s costumed Arrow, John Diggle is finally getting some superhero threads.
Ahead of the premiere of the new season, the first image has come of Arrow’s right-hand man’s new outfit.
The Magneto-style helmet ties into the season three finale when Queen told Diggle to hide his identity if he was to continue fighting crime in Star City. At San Diego Comic-Con in June, showrunner Marc Guggenheim explained the origin of the helmet;
“One of the things that we started to feel last year… is Diggle’s got a wife [and] daughter. So if he’s going out there surrounded by people in masks and he’s John Diggle, that’s not the greatest idea on his part.”
Arrow season 4 premieres on October 7.
