While there is a large chunk of the DC fandom that knows about almost all the characters from the pages of DC Comics, the recent fans who only know characters from the films will be oblivious to the superhero named Booster Gold. Although he has been depicted in a couple of TV shows in the past, he is all set to make his debut in the DC cinematic universe under James Gunn’s supervision.

And with the emergence of the superhero into the DCU being almost confirmed by sources, there are a lot of speculations about who the Brightburn director will cast as the main character of the upcoming project. In recent times, the name Chris Pratt has been going around to portray the superhero, but fans seem to be wanting someone else as the face of the upcoming character.

While there have been many who were speculated to become the character, who is depicted as a goofball and a Happy-Go-Lucky kind of person. Thus, this character suited the persona of Chris Pratt very well, who has also portrayed the character of Star-Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy series under James Gunn’s direction. Thus, he has talked about how he would love to play the role if Gunn ever needed him again.

But fans seem to have a different opinion. Many fans replied to this tweet, saying how Glen Powell, the star who played the role of Lt. Jake “Hangman” Seresin in the blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick, would be a better fit for the role.

Whether it is Chris Pratt or Glen Powell depends on the choice that James Gunn will make at the end, but fans can still nudge the director into a certain direction with their persuasive powers.
