The latest DC All Access promotional video on YoutTube includes an interview with Justice League Action producer Jim Krieg. At about the 4:50 mark, Krieg says:
Every show you're hoping for a Fonzie, and we have, like, five Fonzies. Every time we'll bring a new actor into the booth, we'll hear P.J. Byrne's Firestorm [and] go "him, he's our breakout character." And then Dana Snyder will come in and do Plastic Man and [we'll] go "Plastic Man, definitely our break out character." And then when we have Diedrich Bader as Booster Gold and he also is a break out character. So it's all Fonzies. It's all Fonzies all the time.
That's some great praise, assuming you've ever heard of Fonzie. Krieg does know his show is aimed at children, right?
For you kids out there, Happy Days was a television show that your parents watched between 1974 and 1984. Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli was intended to be a minor character but soon became the focus of the show. Think Urkel in Family Matters.
Wait a second. Family Matters has been off the air since 1998. That's almost twenty years! Damn.
Sorry, kids. You're on your own.

I'm sure by now you all know where I stand on spreading empty promises and rumors. But since a lot of people seem to be very excited about the fact that a DC executive has actually uttered the words "Booster Gold" on camera, here you go:
That's right, Dan DiDio has officially gone on record in an official DC promotional video as saying that the company is planning something for next April that may or may not involve Booster Gold.
Make of it what you will.

Yesterday, DC released its latest "DC All Access" episode. There were a couple of tidbits of interest to Booster Gold fans.
Starting at 4:21 in the Youtube video embedded above, host Blair Herter interviews Geoff Johns about the five DC television shows currently in production, specifically Green Arrow, I, Zombie, Constantine, Gothamn, and "the dark horse" Hourman. Notice anyone missing from that list? You have to figure that if Johns doesn't mention Booster Gold, we can probably assume it's a dead project.
When the conversation turns to the comics Johns is writing (at about 5:58), Johns goes on to explain that he considers Cyborg and
Captain Marvel Shazam! to be "the Blue Beetle and Booster Gold of my era Justice League." I guess actually using Beetle and Booster in the New 52 would have been too easy, huh, Geoff?
