Nathan Fillion would love to play DC Comics' Booster Gold

Nathan Fillion Booster Gold Banner

Despite voicing Green Lantern in multiple animated flicks and being a fan favorite to play several different superheroes, Nathan Fillion still hasn't been able to land a role in a comic book movie. I know, he cameoed in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, but that really doesn't count. The actor may never be cast as the lead in a CBM, however during an appearance at Wizard World Comic Con Chicago, Fillion said he thinks he'd make a damn fine Booster Gold.

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

Fillion went on to say he'd also be down for playing Ambush Bug and starring in a The Greatest American Hero reboot, although it's hard to tell if he was joking about the latter.

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

Warner Bros. and DC don't have a Booster Gold movie in the works, and it doesn't appear as if they have any big screen plans for the character. I would love to see Fillion play the superhero though, and I think it would be awesome if he had a small role in say, the next Superman movie, with the Man of Steel saving his cocky ass to start the film. Is that going to happen? Probably not, but a boy can still dream.

Of course he could nail it.

But I'd rather see him lose some weight and take on Green Lantern.

He definitely has the charisma and gravitas to pull it off. I can almost see a bit of the persona of the character coming from his Captain Hammer performance for Dr. Horrible.

But I also remember reading how he would have been interested in playing the Scorpion in a Spider Man film as well. And with the rights reverted back to Marvel, I can't see why Marvel wouldn't pursue him for that role if he's still interested.

If he had to land one big, vital comic book role then I hope it would be

If he had to land one big, vital comic book role then I hope it would be for Green Lantern. He would just have to shed some weight first.

Have Booster Gold appear in the Flash TV show. Then he'd be perfect!
