A significant DC character finally made his Arrowverse debut within the current seventh season finale of Legends of Tomorrow, as Donald Faison was added to The CW present’s lineup as Booster Gold, the favored time-traveling superhero from the comics. Now that Faison’s on board as Booster, followers are determined to see his frequent associate in crimefighting — the second Blue Beetle, Ted Kord — be part of him on Legends. And there’s just one potential selection for who ought to play him.
The web is obsessive about the concept of Zach Braff being forged as Kord, in order that we will have Faison reignite his iconic double act along with his former Scrubs co-star within the DC universe. But what does Braff consider the concept? Luckily for followers, he’s open to it. To promote his new Disney Plus film, a remake of Cheaper By the Dozen, the actor informed SlashFilm that he’s effectively conscious of the need for him to play Blue Beetle, and he’s not about to disappoint anybody by ruling the choice out. Even if he’s not all that conversant in the character.
“Listen, this keeps coming up and I want you to tell all your followers: I am down to play Ted Kord,” Braff defined. “Whoever owns the property. It’s DC, right? Probably part of the BerlantiVerse. He’s one of the first people who ever hired me. But yeah, Donald said that everyone [is saying that I should be Ted Kord]… I don’t follow comic books. I’m sorry. I know people love them. I don’t know anything about it, but yes, I’m here to announce that whoever owns the property. I’m down to play Ted Kord.”
The Arrowverse has been hinting at Kord’s existence within the franchise for years now. Brandon Routh was even initially employed to play him earlier than DC informed them they couldn’t use the hero and so he was recast because the Atom as a substitute. The motive why was as a result of Warner Bros. was creating a Booster Gold film on the time. But that venture should’ve been quietly shelved if Faison’s Booster is now allowed to seem on Legends. So there’s theoretically nothing stopping Braff from hopping aboard as Kord if that’s one thing he desires.
Kord’s successor because the Blue Beetle, Jaime Reyes will certainly quickly be on our screens, although. Cobra Kai‘s Xolo Mariduena stars as the teen hero in the Blue Beetle film that’s hitting theaters in August 2023. In the meantime, The CW has but to make an official decision on Legends of Tomorrow season eight.
