Booster Gold Movie Plot Leaked

Perhaps you saw the news yesterday breaking on Entertainment Weekly that actor Patrick J. Adams has been cast for that "fun character the fans will love" role in the season finale of DC's Legends of Tomorrow? Booster booster Jeremy R! Hudson of nerdbastards.com desperately wants Adams to be Booster Gold. TVLine.com insists he won't be.

(Personally, I expect to see him as a Legionnaire. Given James' success playing a genius on USA's Suits, I'm betting he'll be playing Brainiac 5.)

Part of the reason I'm inclined to believe that Booster Gold will not be on Legends of Tomorrow anytime soon is because someone has finally leaked the synopsis of the long-awaited Booster Gold movie. It's ... interesting. Brace yourself. A lot of things have been changed.

In a nutshell, Booster Gold is — spoilers! — a time cop from the future in a high-tech police force run by Ted Kord. Senator Ballard — who you may remember as the villain in Booster's first adventures — is the bad guy. There are some other familiar names scattered throughout, but no Michelle, no Rip, and worse, no Skeets!

Goodbye, Generation Lost...

With Justice League: Generation Lost finally wrapping up, it looks like Booster Gold is back to one appearance a month in his solo series. We've gotten spoiled after several months of 3, even 4 Booster Gold appearances in a month. So sad.

But what's with these persistent rumors that I keep hearing about an upcoming series...?

Spoilers Are Evil. Is DC?

Those of you poor, unfortunate souls who read DC's advance solicitations got some disturbing news this week about upcoming issues of Justice League: Generation Lost. I won't reveal the spoilers here, because there is nothing, NOTHING, I hate more than a good plot-twist ruined. However, I think this raises an important question: Do comic readers want spoilers?

DC editorial is market-driven. If DC is teasing major plot twists in their spoilers, it's because they think it increases sales. Clearly, the DC powers that be believe that stirring up fan emotion will result in more books sold. Is this true?

"Buzz" surrounding a controversial event will certainly increase sales, especially with casual comic book fans ("Death of Superman", Obama/Spider-Man, etc.). But is the strategy of revealing in advance the ending of the story in order to increase short-term sales self-defeating in the long run? For the average comic book buyer, is the journey more important than the destination? If I told you how the ending for all the plot-lines you are currently reading, would you keep buying the books?

DC apparently thinks that the answer is yes.
