Could Antony Starr really be playing Booster Gold? The Boys actor speaks out on the rumor that James Gunn has cast him in the new DC Universe.

One of the most baffling pieces of fan casting in recent months has been Antony Starr as Booster Gold. Starr is best known for playing Homelander on The Boys, a role which has little resemblance to Booster Gold aside from being blonde. However, that hasn’t stopped people from speculating Starr landed the role in the DC Universe.

This speculation reached a fever pitch once James Gunn followed Antony Starr on Instagram. Many assumed this was all but concrete confirmation that Starr would be making his way over from The Boys to the DC Universe as Booster Gold. However, according to the actor, things are much more simple than fans make it appear.

Antony Starr Gives His Thoughts On James Gunn

Antony Starr was asked about this speculation during a recent interview to promote season 4 of The Boys. When the particular idea of the Instagram follow came up, Starr waved off the speculation. According to the actor, he and James Gunn play golf together, and their Instagram activity doesn’t mean he’s playing Booster Gold or anyone else in the DC Universe.

“Me and James just play golf,” Starr told Comicbook.com. “…I cannot wait to see what he does with the DC Universe. I think he’s a phenomenal director, producer, talent. He’s one of the biggest brands in the industry, so I’m excited to see what he cooks up.”

Of course, this doesn’t mean that Antony Starr can’t have a role in the DC Universe down the line. His role as Homelander on The Boys has proven he has a knack for playing comic book characters, and there are plenty he’d be an (actually good) fit for outside of Booster Gold. Though it seems whatever deals have been made will be staying on the golf course for now!

The Boys season 4 is set to premiere June 13 on Amazon Prime Video. Stay tuned for the latest news surrounding the series and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
