Honestly, if you can bring to life the King of Rock and Roll himself, Elvis Presley, then you can be a comic book superhero! And not only has Austin Butler brought Presley to life, but he won awards for his portrayal. That alone is enough for us to think that Butler could be the perfect Booster Gold.
He has an impressive presence on the big screen and of course the charisma of a rockstar. Austin Butler has what it takes to not only portray Booster Gold but also to truly bring him to life. We can see him as a young, boisterous Booster, using his knowledge of future events to show off for the people. And at the same time, we can also see him as the more mature version of the hero after tragedy and life lessons have forced him to let go of his showboating ways.
Butler has what it takes to be strong, fast, and even tragic, which is everything we need in our next Booster Gold. The fact that he also has the strong jawline and blonde hair of the comic books is just the icing on the cake for us. He is exactly who we picture when it comes to a DC Universe superhero, and if you wrap him in the black and gold suit of the comics, he might just be the perfect, real-life representation of the hero.
There are a lot of actors who could potentially play Booster Gold in the DC Universe, but Ryan Gosling, Cole Sprouse, Lucas Till, Henry Golding, and Austin Butler are definitely at the top of our shortlist. They all have what it takes to make magic happen on the big screen and the small screen, and each of them has the perfect amounts of charisma, charm, and maturity to make this hero a DC cornerstone.
