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!

Yesterday, Michael Ausiello of TVLine.com reported the following:
Rumor has it the final scene of Legends of Tomorrow's May 19 season finale will introduce a "beloved superhero from the DC canon" whose mysterious agenda serves as "a launching off point for Season 2."
Naturally, the Internet seems to think this will be Booster Gold. "Mysterious" might be a bit much, but "beloved" is on target.
If you recall, it was just last August when Legends of Tomorrow Executive Producer Phil Klemmer told The Hollwyood Reporter that there was no way Booster Gold would be appearing in Season One.
"I wish I could tease a Booster thing but, you might have to wait a good long while at least on our show. Perhaps Booster is being groomed for bigger things."
Have Booster's "bigger things" fallen through? Was "bigger things" always intended to be Legends of Tomorrow's Season Two? Or is this "mysterious" and "beloved" hero from DC's canon not Booster Gold at all? I guess we'll find out on May 19.

TVLine.com has reported a casting call for the upcoming Arrow/Flash spin-off. Included in the list of "mystery" characters is the description of someone who might be familiar to Boosterrific visitors:
"THE TRAVELER" : Described as a Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm, this hero hails from the future, and has journeyed back in time on a secret mission. His razor-sharp wit hides the pain of a man who has lived through serious conflict. He also harbors many secrets, always leaving both his teammates and the audience unsure of his true allegiances.
TVLine (and just about everyone else on the Internet, including our pal Russ Burlingame) thinks this is most likely Rip Hunter. Of course, The DC Universe has no shortage of time travelers, so it could just as easily be Waverider or the Time Trapper or Valor. But it just might be Booster Gold.
Whoever it turns out to be, The CW sure has our attention. In the meantime, if you have a theory, I invite you to join the conversation in the Boosterrific Forum.
