DCU Fans Are Already In A Heated Debate Over Chris Pratt's Potential Booster Gold Casting

Earlier this month, some DC fans began calling for “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt to be cast as a live-action version of Booster Gold. Over a week before James Gunn announced the comic book character’s new HBO Max series, @JoshThomas1994 even tweeted, “Chris Pratt would make an excellent Booster Gold.”

In the immediate hours after Gunn’s DC slate announcement on Tuesday, several fans began to reiterate their desire to see Pratt play Booster Gold in the DCU, too. On Twitter, @MattCalloway62 tweeted directly at Gunn, writing, “If you’re gonna bring over [members of] the ‘Guardians’ cast, then consider Chris Pratt for Booster Gold. He could pull off the humour, arrogance and charisma of Booster really well.” Elsewhere, @melwheezy wrote, “‘Booster Gold’ intrigues me. I feel like it’s [Chris Pratt’s] job to lose.”

Of course, not every DC fan thinks Pratt is the right actor to play Booster Gold. Following Gunn’s recent DC announcement, @shawnmbarnett, for instance, tweeted, “I swear if Warner Bros cast[s] Chris Pratt as Booster Gold I will quit DC forever,” while @Josueisinbed wrote, “I really really hope that James Gunn doesn’t make Chris Pratt Booster Gold.”

All in all, it seems safe to say that DC fans aren’t in total agreement right now about whether Pratt should actually be cast as Booster Gold. With that in mind, it’s worth noting that James Gunn hasn’t suggested yet that he’s even considering Pratt for the coveted role. The filmmaker has said that he’ll likely end up working with members of his “Guardians of the Galaxy” cast again, though, so there’s definitely a chance Pratt could show up at some point in the Gunn-led era of the DCU.

Whether or not he ends up playing Booster Gold, however, is another matter altogether.
