Over the years, The CW have brought us a number of different DC characters to the small screen and, while some of them have not managed to take off, such as Aquaman and Wonder Woman, they have managed to have some very impressive shows, with the likes of Smallville, Arrow, and The Flash. Actor David Ramsey plays the role of Diggle in the hit The CW series Arrow and he has been talking about appearing in the show.
One of the things that David Ramsey touched on, was the fact that actress Katie Cassidy will be taking on the role of Black Canary for the second half of Arrow season 3 and beyond. David has given the views of his character Diggle, while also admitting that he himself was very impressed with how well Katie has taken to the role.
Ramsey told Collider, "In terms of what Diggle feels about it, Diggle is a soldier, so he realizes that getting a civilian that’s on a mission – and that’s how he sees Canary – isn’t good, logistically. It’s not a good idea. That’s the way he approaches it, just purely militaristically. It’s not smart. But, he gets on board because she’s passionate and she’s training. She becomes a formidable ally in the field, and he recognizes that."
He added, "Me, personally, having seen her don the outfit, I was jazzed about it. I was just like, 'Wow!' I didn’t know what to expect. I was like, 'Katie is now Black Canary? How’s that going to be?' I didn’t know what to expect, good or bad. But watching her in it and watching her take on that superhero persona, she’s been awesome."
Arrow season three returned last night (January 21) and the show will continue to air on The CW on Wednesday evenings at 8/7c.
