Smallville — Booster Gold & Blue Beetle Pic

Smallville_BOOSTER1From TV Guide comes this first look at Booster Gold (Eric Martsolf) and the new Blue Beetle (Jaren Brandt Bartlett), in their upcoming appearance on SMALLVILLE. 

In Booster, scheduled to air April 22nd, Days of Our Lives star Eric Martsolf describes his role of Booster Gold as , “a glory-seeking showboat from the future.”  

“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.”

Episode author, DC Comics’  Geoff Johns says:

“The one thing Booster does prove to Clark is that people want to look up to this guy… They want to be inspired, and no one’s doing it for them.”

However. Clark Kent and his time-traveling rival have different values. 
“This guy (Booster Gold)  always shows up at the last second to make a dramatic rescue, which is really suspect,” hints Johns, now creative head of DC Entertainment.

SMALLVILLE returns from hiatus  on Friday, April 15th at 8:00PM/7:00 PM Central on The CW.
