Better Late Than Never

Remember the Booster Gold movie script that Zack Stentz wrote for Greg Berlanti back in 2016? Back in August, I wrote "If I were to venture a guess, I'd say it's not dead yet, just moving really, really slowly." It looks like I'm a good guesser.

Earlier this week, Hollywood screenwriter Zack Stentz tweeted about scripts that he has sold but that have not (as of yet) been produced into movies. Among the list was Booster Gold. That triggered this exchange:

It's still ALIVE! A screenwriter friend told me he asked DC/WB about it a few months back. @DanielRPK 28 Nov 2018

Can we trust that source? According to gvnation.com, "Daniel is well known for breaking several DC scoops," so he has that going for him. But in case that's not strong enough evidence itself, let's go straight to the horse's mouth:

Not as long as it's an active project. @MuseZack 28 Nov 2018

There you go. Booster Gold The Movie is still an "active project" at Warner Bros. Personally, I'm willing to be patient if it means they're going to do our hero right.

Hope Only Floats So Long

Booster Gold fans are less optimistic than I expected.

Last week's poll question: Are you still expecting Warner Bros to release a live-action Booster Gold movie? (43 votes)

Are you still expecting Warner Bros to release a live-action Booster Gold movie?

I can't say as I blame you. Warner Bros certainly doesn't seem to know what they're doing, and that makes it awfully hard to have faith that they'll do our hero justice.

Those of you who have lost faith may enjoy reading the somewhat rambling opinion piece "The DC Extended Universe needs to die" at Destructoid.com. I did.

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.

Reading the Tea Leaves

As seen recently on Twitter:

After having two #1 films at the box office in summer 2011, it took until this summer to get another film with my name on it into production. Every other film/pilot I worked on between then & now died or was rewritten so much that my name didn't appear on it. -- @MuseZack 16 Aug 2018

Hmm. All of his projects since 2011 are "dead"? Yet Stentz "liked" the reply comment about Booster Gold? What does that mean for his Booster Gold screenplay?

In case you were unaware, Zack Stentz is the writer of the Booster Gold movie script commissioned in 2016 by and delivered in 2017 to Flash producer Greg Berlanti. Berlanti announced as recently as May 2018 that he wants to direct it.

Despite all that good news, Booster Gold: The Movie has never received any official announcement through Warner Bros, the parent company of DC Comics and the studio behind every DC movie to date. And today's tweet from the screenwriter implies that if the script isn't dead, it's at least being rewritten.

So what's the takeaway here?

If I were to venture a guess, I'd say it's not dead yet, just moving really, really slowly. Given that the upcoming DC Universe streaming service is going to need lots of new content to justify the $8/month subscription cost — which is why Berlanti has lately been working on Titans and Stargirl television series — it seems likely that any Berlanti-helmed Booster Gold project still working its way through channels would also have that destination in mind. Because that streaming service doesn't exist yet (beta testing has been announced to start sometime this month), it may be some time before Stentz's Booster Gold script, or any other, makes it into production.

And, of course, if Warner Bros does decide they want to move ahead with a Booster Gold movie for the big screen, The Hollywood Reporter speculates that Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is available, assuming he wants to helm a movie about a celebrity looking for redemption for past misdeeds.

To know for sure if or when we might ever see Stentz's script or any Booster Gold project become a reality, we'd need a Time Sphere. Since that's even less likely than seeing a Booster Gold movie, I guess we'll just have to wait and see what we see.

Enjoy The Little Things

My television has been bombarded by Teen Titans Go! To the Movies ads for the past two weeks. I didn't pay them too much attention — I try to avoid movie trailers; I think they give too much away — but I could have sworn I kept spotting the Corporate Crusader in the background of some of the big group shots. Try as I might, I couldn't confirm that from the official trailers I found on YouTube.

That is, I couldn't prove it until yesterday. Feast your eyes upon this:

Booster Gold is clearly visible in this screen capture from the trailer compilation posted by Comicbook.com. You'll find this clip at 2:16 and repeated at 3:20. It's a Booster two-fer!

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is in theaters now, so I guess I'll be going to the movies this weekend.
