Last week at CBR.com, Jason Cohen postulated that Booster Gold is the solution to most of the problems with the DC Extended Universe (read: movies).
Booster may not seem like the blockbuster name that will fix the DCEU, but the character could do the necessary legwork to "boost" confidence in the future of the troubled cinematic universe. Between the character's bumbling wannabe hero schtick, his time traveling capabilities, and a character arc on par with Iron Man or Ant-Man, he's the perfect choice to cement the redefinition of the DCEU.
I certainly agree with Cohen's larger point that the DCEU needs an overhaul. I'm not so sure, however, that Booster is the solution.
I'm really of two minds about this. On the one hand, I'd love to see a good Booster Gold movie. On the other hand, I'm not sure that Warner Bros even can make a good Booster Gold movie.
Until Warner Bros demonstrates to me that they can consistently make the kind of superhero films I want to see — Wonder Woman's first two acts were a good start — perhaps it would be best if Booster remained the greatest hero the cinema-going public has never heard of.
