Now, with the rumor-mill having never quite given up on the idea of Nathan Fillion playing the hero — and rightly so — it's not as though Booster Gold has ever been all that far from making headlines over the past few years. Which, of course, is exactly how the notoriously publicity-obsessed super-dude from the 25th century would like it.

As it turns out, though, the prospect of Fillion taking on the role isn't actually the biggest Booster-related news this month. Y'see, while we were all hoping for one particular geek-icon to take the role, the folks over at DC were apparently focusing on a slightly bigger issue - namely, actually finding a way to get Booster Gold onto our screens. That's right:

It Seems Booster Gold is Officially On His Way To Our Screens

The only problem? We have no idea when, or in what format.

Y'see, as DC's Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns recently revealed to Russ Burlingame of, there are definitely plans for Booster — they're just not ready to be revealed just yet:

"You’ll see [Booster Gold] very soon, and there’s talks about… there’s actually a lot of plans for Booster Gold, one of my favorite characters. But yeah, Booster Gold fans, you will definitely be happy with what we’ve got coming up in the years ahead."

Now, it seems safe to assume that the first 'very soon' part of that reveal is referring to a comic-book appearance, seeing as Booster has already been teased to appear in DC's upcoming comic-book event, 'Rebirth'. Beyond that, those 'talks' and 'plans' sure do sound like a straight-up confirmation from Johns that Booster will be heading to our screens sooner rather than later.

The big question now? Just where he's going to turn up...

Which, with the DCEU schedule already looking pretty full, seems most likely to be on the small screen, with either The Flash or Legends of Tomorrow seeming the most likely options. That being said, a pan-CW crossover event featuring Booster winding up the Arrow cast could well be must see TV, and there's always the chance that someone will let Greg Berlanti take a crack at a full-blown DC movie...

Quick, someone call Fillion and tell him to keep his schedule clear.

What do you reckon, though?


Where do you want to see Booster Gold turn up?
