We have been waiting for some more news on this and now it is revealed, plus a first look pic of Days of our Lives favorite, Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) in his newest alter-ego, that of Booster Gold, the superhero! Martsolf guest-stars as BG on the upcoming April 22nd episode of Smallville on the CW! You have to check out the pic at TV Guide.com of Martsolf’s superhero get-up! Very cool, we say!
Martsolf in an interview with the television site offered this up about Booster’s emergence onto the Smallville scene, “The episode takes place in Booster’s very early stages where he’s at his conceited best, where he believes he can do whatever he wants. He’s gonna stay for the photo op and bask in the glory of his heroic efforts.” Then, Martsolf contrasts his Booster Gold to Tom Welling’s Clark Kent in the same scenario who Eric says of CK, “He wants to stand in the back and not be a glory hound. They are completely opposites of one another.”
Geoff Johns, the famous comic book writer who wrote the Booster Gold based episode says, “The one thing Booster does prove to Clark is that people want to look up to this guy. This guy (Booster) always shows up at the last second to make a dramatic rescue, which is really suspect.”
Booster’s appearance and behavior may serve as the tipping point for Tom Welling’s character of Clark Kent as the series soon comes to it’s conclusion. This just could prove to be the most pivotal moment in Clark’s life.
