Nathan Fillion Wants To Play Booster Gold


Nathan Fillion is no stranger to the superhero universe. Fillion has voiced Green Lantern in multiple DC Comics animated features, and he played a monstrous inmate in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

While appearing at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago, Fillion was asked who he would play if he could have his pick of any character from the Marvel or DC universe.

“I think I could take a pretty good crack at Booster Gold,” said Fillion. “That’s kind of my niche… show-offy, vain. I think I could handle that… not too bright.”

However, if Booster Gold doesn’t work out, Fillion also offered up a couple of alternatives.

“I think Ambush Bug. Remember that guy? Little bit off his rocker. You’d never see my face,” added Filion. “But I think Greatest American Hero is due for a reboot.”

    I would prefer him to play Green Lantern but I just want this man to be a part of the DC Cinematic universe. Also, him being mistaken for Green Lantern in the movies would be out of this world funny.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Nathan Fillion playing Richard Rider/Nova. They already established the existence of the Nova Corps in 'GotG', all they need to do is introduce him in 'GotG Vol. 2' (and possibly again in one of the 'Infinity Wars') and then he can get his own movie (or even just be the star of a general 'Nova Corps' movie) in Marvel's 'Phase 4'.

  1. There isn't enough "Oh, HELL no" in a dozen Queen Latifah comedies to offset this.

  2. Or not. He's talentless trash, he should go back to Marvel.

  3. Too old for Booster.
