David Ramsey's John Diggle Will Headline New Arrowverse TV Show
The series, called Justice U, will see Diggle training a new generation of heroes undercover at a prestigious university.
After appearing as a side character in a number of DC's TV projects, David Ramsey's John Diggle, AKA superhero Spartan, will headline a new Arrowverse show called Justice U, Deadline reports. The show will follow Diggle as he recruits a team of five young meta humans, placing them undercover at a prestigious university so he can oversee their education and training as heroes.
Ramsey has played John Diggle, a former U.S. Army soldier turned superhero and friend to Oliver Queen, since the first season of Arrow released in 2012, and has since reprised the role in a number of DC shows including Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Superman and Lois, Supergirl, and Batwoman.
Warner Bros. hasn't yet revealed what other cast or characters will star alongside Ramsey in Justice U, though the series has the co-executive producer of Superman and Lois, Michael Narducci, attached.
As well as starring in Justice U and guest starring in other Arrowverse shows, Ramsey will continue to direct a number of episodes across the slate of Arrowverse shows, thanks to an overall directing deal with Berlanti Productions. Ramsey will also direct the pilot of Justice U, as long as the show is picked up to pilot.
