Why Booster Gold Is The Most Exciting Part Of James Gunn’s New DC Universe

Finally, as hyped as we are to speculate about this character’s involvement in the DCU, the head honchos did tease that they are currently in talks with an actor to take the role of Booster Gold. But after emphasizing during their presentation that they wouldn’t move a project into production without having all their ducks in a row (like a script or a showrunner), it could be a while until we learn who will be taking up the mantle from previous Boosters like Donald Faison, Tom Everett Scott, Eric Martsolf, Diedrich Bader, and even “Batman: The Animated Series” co-creator Bruce Timm.

Personally, I think that former WWE Champion Mike “The Miz” Mizanin would be perfect for the role, but with his commitments to professional wrestling, his reality show “Miz & Mrs,” and his production company, he may have too much on his plate to commit to playing the character across film, television, animation, and video games, which is what Safran and Gunn indicated at the presentation as a requirement when casting a performer from here on out.

Regardless of who ends up landing the role, it’s an extremely exciting time to be a Booster Gold fan since we’re finally getting what we’ve been promised after all these years.
