David Ramsey On Fan Backlash To ARROW Season 4 Helmet

David Ramsey On Fan Backlash To ARROW Season 4 Helmet

Fans have wanted David Ramsey's Diggle to get his own costume since season 1 of Arrow. Heading into season 4, they'll finally have their wish granted but many are not liking what they're seeing. However, Ramsey cautions that don't have the whole story yet on Diggle's new duds.

Fans have not been kind to Diggle's new helmet that will be making its debut when Arrow kicks off its fourth season this October.  With Diggle recently getting remarried and having a kid, it makes sense  that he, out of all the other supporting members of Team Arrow, needs to conceal his identity.  But the reveal of his long-awaited superhero duds left a lot of Arrow fans disappointed.

Speaking to TV Guide Magazine, Ramsey touched on the fan backlash and teased that there's more to his costume that hasn't been revealed yet.  "I like it.  I know there’s a lot of criticism that it looks like the Magneto helmet. But by the time you see Diggle in action – we also get into what the helmet can do – you won’t be thinking of the X-Men at all. There is a very cool gun too. The gun and the helmet, by the way, are S.T.A.R. Labs creations."
