Legends of Tomorrow EP Teases Booster Gold’s Comic-Accurate Costume
Legends of Tomorrow boss Phil Klemmer reveals why Booster Gold’s debut spanned seven seasons and how his iconic costume could factor into future stories.
Should DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will be renewed, fans will finally be able to see Donald Faison wearing Booster Gold’s official Arrowverse uniform.
Executive producer Phil Klemmer, speaking to ComicBook.com, noted how long people have wanted to see the Booster Gold cameo on Legends of tomorrow, given the time traveler status of the DC hero. “His name has come up, I feel like every season for as long as I can remember,” Klemmer revealed. “And it seems like the only time we weren’t expecting it was the only time it landed in our laps. I’m forever grateful to DC and to [DC’s creative director for TV] Kim Roberto, who covers our show. We didn’t expect that. I don’t know how these things work. I don’t know what’s going on. DC is a chic and shiny building; I feel guilty even walking into the posh lobby. So I don’t know what’s going on in there. I just know someone in there we owe a giant fruit basket.”
Speculation that Faison would play Booster in the Season 7 finale was confirmed by his introduction, playing World War I golf with a star badge golf ball reminiscent of Booster Gold’s suit colors. His official title wasn’t spoken until the finale’s cliffhanger, which Klemmer described as “a reason to hold off on the costume,” he continued. “The other was logistics. It takes forever to design such a costume, and we were in the final sprint of Season 7 when Donald joined the show. Finally, if and when Booster gets his costume in Season 8, it seems worthy of a whole story or maybe stories.”
