Sunset Superman

Last week's announcement about Henry Cavill's departure from future DC Comics movies sent a lot of websites scrambling to re-report what we all thought we knew about Warner Bros' big screen plans.

Some of those sites, like DenOfGeek.com (which ran an updated repost) had Greg Berlanti's Booster Gold on their list, whereas io9.com added our hero as an editorial afterthought, and Movieweb.com ignored Booster altogether.

Of course, it *has* been a long time since we've gotten any real update on the progress of that venture. Last month, screenwriter Zack Stentz seemed to imply it was dead (or at least his involvement in it is). So let's test the mood of Booster Gold fandom on this.

This week's poll question: Are you still expecting Warner Bros to release a live-action Booster Gold movie? Please visit the Boosterrific Polls page to view results for this week's poll.

What Morgenstern Learned at Comic Con 2015

Morgenstern did what I could not: he found a picture of a Booster Gold cosplayer at Sand Diego Comic Con International 2015:

The pic comes to us by way of ProfessorWhat.tumblr.com under the label "Apparently the only Blue Beetle and Booster Gold at SDCC."

Before we leave the subject of Comic-Con for another year, I should mention that there was one additional Booster Gold reference made by a comics professional at the con. When io9.com's Cheryl Eddy asked Harley Quinn artist Chad Hardin who he'd like to get his hands on in the DC Universe, Hardin said this:

"I'd love Guy Gardner and Booster Gold, that whole trio of troublemakers from JLA in the 1980s. I think that'd be a lot of fun."

By trio, he must mean to include Blue Beetle. I think that'd be a lot of fun, too.

Thanks to Morgenstern for finding that cosplay pic.

Secret Comic Collection Shame

Over the weekend, ObservationDeck.io9 asked its readers "What's Your Secret Comic Collection Shame?" I mention that post here mainly because the author, Wenchette, credited a Booster Gold fan for the idea. We all know Booster Gold fans have no shame!

Although the mid-90s weren't a good time for anybody.

(Some may feel it's shameful, but I've always been up front about my inexplicable affinity for Extreme Justice. If I have any regrets, it's the comics I traded away long ago. I think I'd like to have all my early 80s Marvel G.I. Joes back now, please.)

Preview Justice League International #9

Thanks to the Boosterrific Forum's latest member, MetalWoman, for giving us a head's up about the 5-page preview (1/4 of the total issue!) for Justice League International #9 posted last week at io9.com. Two things to take away from this preview:

© DC Comics

  1. Skeets is still very much Booster's sidekick in the DCnU, even if we can't quite get him on panel yet.
  2. Batwing is a jerk.

Justice League International #9 will go on sale this Wednesday, May 2.
