New Arrow Season 4 Pictures Tease Diggle's Superhero Costume
We all knew that Arrow fan favorite John Diggle is getting his own superhero identity this season, but now we finally have pictures of his superhero costume, which was first teased at San Diego Comic Con. We still don't know exactly which superhero he will become, but the costume may give us a few clues:

The costume is pretty awesome, first of all, and perfectly fits with Arrow's dark aesthetic. The outfit itself is fairly simple, but the helmet is more telling; it looks a little bit like Magneto's, but Diggle obviously won't become a Marvel character. There have been some rumors that Diggle will turn into John Stewart/Green Lantern, but the producers have already denied that, and the helmet looks completely different from the distinctive Green Lantern mask. Plus, John Stewart will likely show up in the DCEU, especially if there are multiple Green Lanterns, and Tyrese Gibson has already met with Warner Bros. about the role.

It makes the most sense for Diggle to become the Guardian, a masked hero in DC Comics who had no superpowers. The character was originally white, but Arrow seems like the kind of show that would change a character's race without any fuss, and the helmet looks a lot like Guardian's helmet, albeit in black instead of gold.

The costume can also briefly be seen in the newly released sizzle reel from Dragon Con, along with Speedy, Damien Darhk, a resuscitated Sara Lance, and special guest Constantine:
