Wednesday, IGN.com published an interview between Jesse Schedeen and Andrew Kreisberg. Most of the Q&A focuses on The CW's Arrow, which Kreisberg executive produces, but Schedeen managed to save the most important question for last:
IGN Comics: Before we end off, I wanted to ask about another show you've been working on. Back during SDCC you revealed that you were preparing to submit your first script for the Booster Gold series you're developing for SyFy. Is there any update on that show right now?
Kreisberg: [laughs] I got a little waylaid by Arrow. Booster Gold is going in in the next couple weeks before Christmas. We'll see what happens from there. It's such a different project even though they're both DC Comics properties. Booster is much more candy and popcorn, being about time travel and changing the future and being a superhero who can fly. But they're both super-fun projects. As a lifelong DC Comics fan, I am beyond blessed to be working on these projects with all these amazing characters.
Booster Gold fans certainly have something to look foward to this Christmas season! Thanks to Russ Burlingame at ComicBook.com and MetalWoman in the Boosterrific Forum for bringing this bit of good news to our attention.

Last night at midnight, Cartoon Network debuted the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special. The shot of Booster Gold versus Solomon Grundy that appeared in last month's episode trailer was seen in the episode, and Booster put in an additional appearance in the group shot at the end.
Teammates Ice and Firestorm each had lines, but poor Booster didn't have any dialogue. At least we were warned. On Friday, Vaneta Rogers of Newsarama.com posted an interview with Robot Chicken writer Kevin Shinick that included this paragraph:
"And I actually did a Booster Gold voice, but he got cut," [Shinick] said. "But we put the deleted scenes on the DVDs, so people will get to see that."
If we want to see 5 seconds of talking action figure Booster Gold, it looks like we'll have to buy a $15.00 DVD. Or visit PropJosh on YouTube for free.
Thanks to MetalWoman for warning us about Booster's cut scene on Friday afternoon in the Boosterrific.com Forum.

Justice League International Annual #1, the first and last Justice League International Volume 3 annual, hits shelves today. According to the advance solicitations, this issue "ties in to the shocking events of JUSTICE LEAGUE #12!" A preview of the issue was released earlier this week at USAToday.com (thanks to MetalWoman for the link).
Since Justice League #12 also comes out today, you may want to keep your eyes open when you visit your Local Comic Shop this week. False alarm. I bought it. It's terrible and in no way has anything to do with Booster Gold. Never mind.
What's next for the JLI?
Even Skeets wants to know what happens in this annual. Skeets covers its visual receptacles and hides.

It was announced back in April that Cartoon Network's Robot Chicken would have a "DC Comics Special" in their upcoming sixth season. Yesterday, we finally got a quick look at the episode by way of IGN.com. Surprise, surprise, it includes an appearance of Booster Gold (at about 1:34).
So mark your calendars! Booster Gold may not have any comic appearances scheduled through November,
but he'll be on your TV this September 9th. (Thanks to Russ Burlingame at ComicBook.com for calling this to my attention.)
UPDATE 09/07/12: According to Vaneta Rogers' Newsarama.com interview with Robot Chicken writer Kevin Shinick, Booster Gold's speaking part has been cut from the episode. You may or may not still see Booster in the episode, but he won't be opening his big mouth. Thanks to MetalWoman for pointing out this disappointing news.
