In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, TV DCU guru Greg Berlanti has confirmed his involvement with a planned Booster Gold project…
“Question: If Warner Bros. TV executives asked you to be the Kevin Feige — who is the creative mastermind of Marvel — of the DC Cinematic Universe, what would you say?
Answer: It’s never even really come up. Peter [Roth, president of Warner Bros. TV] knows how much I love the characters, and I like being part of this universe in any way that they’ll all allow and are interested in me being a part. That’s the truth. I’m attached to a few films [at Warner Bros.] now, and one, Booster Gold, is a DC property. Zack Stentz, who wrote an episode of Flash last year, just got the job, so he’s writing the script now. I’d probably direct that, or I would want to. But I don’t see my cup as limited. I actually think some of the stuff we get to do on the TV side is richer, deeper and more like the true comic books in the sense that you’re always able to explore a new thing the next week and the stories grow wider and wider.”
Last year it had been reported that Berlanti was working with Warner Bros. Pictures on a Booster Gold/Blue Beetle movie. It’s unclear whether this is that same project or a new iteration. Whatever the case, given Berlanti’s opinion of the role of television in comic storytelling, we at SciFi Pulse hope for a nod or two to Rip Hunter (now leading the Legends of Tomorrow) given how he has been linked with Booster Gold through the years.
