When the CW revealed John Diggle's long-awaited costume for Arrow season 4 fan reaction was mixed, with criticism of his helmet in particular being a well-heard refrain. Now, actor David Ramsey has responded to the outfit's critics with some reassuring words.
“I like it,” Ramsey told TV Guide (via GreenArrowTV). “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.”
Only time will tell if the reaction to Diggle's new look will improve once fans see it in action. They'll get their chance when Arrow season 4 premieres on October 7 on CW.
